A NEW publication has launched today (Thursday March 18), aimed at providing intellectual

editorial on issues that currently matter to business people across Wales.

A journal for business, by business, Informed will focus on practical guidance and solutions

as firms look to rebuild and grow after a testing year.

Created in an online only format, the first edition includes 36-pages of ‘news you can use’

including expert analysis surrounding government briefings, industry insights and topical and

trending pieces about the business communities in Wales. Not limited to business, it will also

include lifestyle reviews of restaurants, cars and trends from around Wales.

Facilitated by Chambers Wales, the quarterly publication will be relevant to businesses of all

sizes and sectors across the country, with a circulation of more than 21,300 people.

Informed is chaired by an independent editor, Alastair Milburn, founder of Effective

Communication and previous award-winning editor of the biggest selling newspaper in

Wales, the South Wales Echo.

Alastair brings with him exemplary writing skills and instincts for a good story, along with

over 16 years of experience in senior roles in the media. Now, he is one of Wales’ leading

PR practitioners with a reputation for stakeholder engagement, strategic planning and crisis

communications, working closely with director level teams for high-profile organisations.

Paul Slevin, President, Chambers Wales, said: “2020 was one of the most challenging years

for businesses having to navigate the uncertainly of Brexit and the hardships many faced as

we found ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic.

“The challenges still facing Welsh businesses are momentous, which is why Chambers

Wales adapted significantly to meet these needs, and prompted the launch of this

heavyweight business publication.

“This industry focused publication allows readers to understand the wider issues in business,

written from an informative perspective, rather than a news or drama viewpoint. Throughout

every edition we look to provide the very best in forward-thinking guidance and solutions, as

well as signposting to best practice and opportunities.

“We’ve been gearing up to the launch of Informed for quite some time now and are looking

forward to the reception of our very first edition and the impact it will have on helping Welsh

businesses rebuild and grow.”
