Takes a smart fox to know a smart fox.
Louise Bunyan | Founder & CEO
In 2005, I had a hand in creating 'Ireland's most expensive sandwich' with abalone fish that came up West Cork on the train to Dublin for a PR photocall. It made its way into to the pages of the Daily Mail. It was the Celtic Tiger days after all.
I'm a digital marketing consultant, qualified trainer (and teacher in New Zealand in a previous life), blogger, creative fiction writer and speaker, with over 10 years’ experience in communications, PR, marketing and senior digital marketing across recruitment multinationals, tech / SaaS industries, the public sector and SMEs.
After sudden redundancy in October 2016 from a tech startup, I interviewed for five long months in Cork and Dublin with leading global brands and SMEs. I experienced countless first round interviews and second rounds (and third rounds and informal chats). I presented my 'strategic marketing vision' many times and completed online assessments. I was regretted and ghosted more times than I want to remember.
But it was all incredible, free market research.
In 2017, after completing a Start your Own Business Course with Cork North and West Local Enterprise Office, I founded SmartFox.ie to work with, train and support SMEs and new business owners in harnessing the power of digital marketing through consultancy and training along with specialising in digital marketing for recruitment. And I wanted to help everyone use LinkedIn properly.
LinkedIn for Sales
And now I'm on a mission to empower everyone in how to use LinkedIn, by removing the fear and showing you how to drive your own personal and professional or career goals.
Whether you work in Sales, Business Development, Marketing, HR or are an MD, CEO, Business Owner, Freelancer, Self-Employed or Consultant, you can build trust, develop your personal brand, sell and drive leads through LinkedIn and my In-House training and open workshops.
LinkedIn for Job Seekers & Students
I also work with job seekers, universities and education providers to train students and anyone looking to get back into the workplace.
