Faith PR director and renowned public relations strategist Stefanie Hopkins has been shortlisted in the SME Emerging category in the regional northern heats of the Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards 2016.

The category acknowledges growing businesses with ten or fewer employees, and entrants are judged on effectiveness in areas including leadership, community impact from the business and strategic direction.

Stefanie said:

“Being shortlisted for these four awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of all the team at Faith PR who have supported me in growing the business from a one person consultancy run from a back bedroom to one of West Yorkshire’s leading agencies.

“Our profile has grown significantly over the last twelve months and we have won several high profile accounts that see us delivering communications campaigns and strategies for clients across the UK and beyond.”

The Forward Ladies Woman in Business Awards regional finals will take place on 14 October at Crowne Plaza hotel in Newcastle.
