Natasha Courtenay-Smith is one of Europe’s leading experts on integrated digital marketing, social media and PR. She is also a 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.

I really enjoyed working with Natasha. She has enormous energy and commitment – and is full of innovative ideas. She had a clear vision of how she wanted my digital strategy to look and work – and made it happen with minimum fuss. I am delighted with the result.

We count ourselves extremely lucky to have been referred to Bolt, led by Natasha Courtenay-Smith. They are real business people and titans in fast-changing digital marketing space, who have trained at the heart of both Facebook and Google.

Beyond that, Tash and the team are one of those rare commodities in business, who pump out far more work than they are actually contracted to do by simply being genuine, ambitious and energetic professionals who become so integrated into the heart and mind of your business, I genuinely do sometimes feel they know more about it than me and my team.

I would be astonished if you didn’t feel the same within an initial six months but more than this and it’s another crucial aspect in such a busy and conversational part of the business, Tash and the team are really rewarding, funny and thoroughly decent people we all regard as friends as much as a colleagues. It’s never the primary reason to take someone on but it’s very hard to succeed if you don’t. Overlook Bolt at your peril!

No stone goes unturned; Natasha is a force of nature, thoroughly efficient and effective. If you’re looking for a captain to help you navigate website design or promotions in the entertainment business – look no further – you’ve found your (wo)man.

Natasha is quite simply a web-genius. It all came to fruition when I appeared on Strictly and found I at last had ways of communicating in a really informative and personal way with viewers who were interested. Thank-you Tash!
