Natasha Courtenay-Smith is one of Europe’s leading experts on integrated digital marketing, social media and PR. She is also a best-selling published author, inspirational keynote speaker, accredited Facebook trainer, CEO of Bolt Digital and mum of two.
Natasha has an extensive media and journalism background, having worked for national newspapers in a variety of roles, before striking out on her own in 2007. Over the next seven years, she created and built the UK’s leading digital press agency, before selling her company to the UK’s largest press agency group. Tash quickly concluded that she was not suited to early retirement and started two new businesses, alongside carrying out some major property renovations.
Her main business focus today is as CEO of Bolt Digital, which helps celebrities, thought-leaders and successful businesses with a range of services in the digital marketing, social media and PR sectors. Unlike many marketing companies that make pretty pictures, Bolt is relentlessly focussed on delivering commercial value and a measurable financial return on investment to its partners and clients, primarily through lead generation and Facebook advertising.
