Finalist Christian New Media Awards 2014 - Innovative Use of New Media In Outreach

Meet Our Team

Faye Smith

Faye has over twenty years experience of sales and marketing – from managing leading retail brands like Debenhams and Principles, to managing Europe’s first retail academy at Meadowhall. Along the way she’s gained vital qualifications like bra fitter, job club leader, business counsellor and image consultant.
As head of sales and marketing at Rotherham Chamber-TEC throughout the nineties, Faye was responsible for supporting thousands of Rotherham businesses and international inward
investment. The birth of her second child caused her to completely re-think her life, starting her own consultancy alongside five years of marketing contracts in the voluntary sector.  Five years ago she fulfilled her dream of becoming a full time entrepreneur, setting up Keep your Fork marketing and PR training consultancy.  When Faye isn’t helping helping charities, social enterprises and businesses find and keep customers and funders, she will be helping students develop more confidence, employability and enterprise skills as they go into the world of work.
In 2014, she was shortlisted for seven national and regional awards including Yorkshire Businesswoman of the Year, Red magazine’s Red Hot Woman of the Year and Innovation in training award for creating her trademark Brand Booster Bitesize DIY marketing and PR training programme for smaller businesses and solopreneurs. She has also won two national awards for Net-Walking Sheffield, a free open access network at which Faye gives marketing advice while walking. Her award-winning customer service training has been featured on all four major TV channels and in the national press. You will also hear some of Faye’s refreshingly outspoken regular guest slots on women, business and moral issues on BBC Radio Sheffield.
Faye has been featured locally and regionally and nationally in Better Business magazine and the Daily Mail.
