"Working with Faith PR was an absolute pleasure. They understood our brief straight away and had the right contacts to produce an effective campaign both before, during and after the restaurant had launched. Their ideas and enthusiasm were fantastic, and the constant communication on all activity taking place across PR, social media, competitions and guest list management made it easy for our head office team to know exactly what was happening at any point during the campaign. Faith PR are one of the best, most hard-working agencies we have worked with since we started opening restaurants in 2010 and the Huddersfield launch event was one of our most successful ever openings."
Francesca Laycock, Project Co-ordinator
"Faith PR were engaged to assist with the launch of a little known, high ticket home cleaning system, sold via in-home demonstrations. They initially assisted with the preparation for the approval to open the UK market, producing excellent creative ideas and also insight into people’s cleaning and buying habits. Faith also managed our Social media activities, in particular on Facebook. They were also called upon to manage all of our print origination and delivery for all product and sales materials as well as assisting with recruitment advertising and response management. They were always punctual, reliable and a pleasure to work with."

Alexandra House Spa
"We have been very impressed with Faith’s activities and results. We've had many articles published in local and national media, both consumer and business related publications. We've also been finalists and/or have won business awards and Faith took responsibility for writing the applications which saved us a lot of time. Faith PR are very proactive and regularly send the spa media requests and PR opportunities. They also write great copy which is always professional and relevant. Faith have established a very comfortable and close working relationship with the spa which makes working with them enjoyable. The results have outweighed the expense and I would highly recommend anyone looking for external support with PR to work with Stef and her team as they are committed, effective, thorough and professional."
Maxine Stead, Owner and Founder
"Faith PR supported on a project basis for Comoodle (a new sharing economy platform). They grew our presence on LinkedIn and captured some of our stories in video format which are both powerful and useful. The team also are very good at reaching beyond the local press and wrote some great press releases which lead to coverage in many other publications. They are a very professional outfit and easy to work with."
Duggs Carre, Project Manager
"Faith were given the task to initiate PR activities in the UK and ROI markets, for Oriflame UK Limited, at the time a privately-owned small enterprise. They managed every aspect of media relations, including working with international teams and celebrities, which they always did in a professional and courteous manner, despite many challenges that our audiences generated. From product launches, London Fashion Week, Sales Conferences and smaller training sessions Faith were always on-hand and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Following the acquisition of Oriflame UK Limited by the €2bn parent business in Sweden, Faith were successful in bidding against many agencies and were successful in securing the account under new management. Faith offered world class service and also developed a feeling for the business and its salesforce seldom found with external relationships."
