Outwrite’s digital director Anthony Bullick narrowly missed out on a business gong at the North Wales Business Insider awards.

Anthony was shortlisted for young business leader of the year at the awards, which took place at Venue Cymru in Llandudno in April.

The annual ceremony, organised by national business publication Insider Wales, recognises the achievements of businesses and entrepreneurs in North Wales.

The young business leader category looked for promising directors under the age of 35, with four other nominees joining Anthony on the shortlist.

Other awards handed out on the evening included a people development award, innovative business of the year and company of the year.

Anthony joined Outwrite in a junior role in 2012, rising up to become a director and shareholder of the digital agency in the space of five years.

He combines his role at Outwrite with active work in the PR industry as a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) North West committee, commentator in the Daily Post and Wales Business Insider, and speaker at events in Wales, Chester and Manchester.

The event was one of a number of awards Outwrite has been shortlisted for in 2017. It was up for best integrated communications campaign at the PRmoment.com awards in March, and is shortlisted for best B2B communications campaign at the Prolific North awards later this month.

Anthony said: “I didn’t take the award home but it was a big honour to be shortlisted at such a prestigious event.

“Outwrite has evolved into a fully fledged digital agency, and being shortlisted for six awards in under a year is a mark of our success.

“We’re heading to the Prolific North awards on May 11 and will be keeping our fingers crossed to win best B2B comms campaign on the evening.”

Outwrite’s clients include the Wales Air AmbulanceWynne Construction, Mold-based chemicals firm Synthite, and engineering, planning and environmental specialists Caulmert.
