Agency Founder //
Consultant //

I’m Matt Beswick, a consultant and agency founder based in the UK. I split my time between Aira and Blush, and consulting with a small number of clients.

I work with founders who need help growing their agency or business, and in-house marketing teams who need strategic support or training.

My Story.


For as long as I can remember I wanted to run my own business. The typical “selling sweets in the playground” story applies here, followed by working for a corporate whilst running an eBay store or two, and eventually (after spending half a decade teaching myself to code) launching a Facebook game that brought joy to over 3 million people.

With that came the curious world of self employment and I haven’t looked back since.

Fast forward the best part of 20 years and I’ve moved from start-up founder to freelance consultant and, ultimately, co-founding two multi-award winning digital agencies. One is trusted by some of the world’s most recognisable brands while the other specialises in working with owners and smaller marketing teams.

I still work with both agency’s leadership teams and key clients, with the rest of my days split between consulting, personal projects, and making the most of family time by working 4 days per week.



Strategic consultancy for in-house teams at brands who simply can't stand still.

I consult for a very small number of clients, bringing my experience working with global brands, founding two digital agencies, and speaking at some of the search industry’s best known conferences. My expertise lies in working alongside in-house teams to help them craft and deliver a tailored digital strategy, with a focus on the more technical aspects of marketing – SEO, Paid Search, Paid Social, and CRM.

Helping agency founders and leadership teams navigate the challenges of exceptional growth.

I love the agency world, and my experience growing Aira to be one of the most respected agencies in our industry has been as fun as it was hard. Why on earth I then decided to take a step back, only to then help my wife build Blush is still beyond me. Glutton for punishment I guess.

I use this experience to help a select few agencies optimise their processes, build out solid financial reporting, nail down their structure, or implement the next step of their growth plan.


Making the challenges of growing your own business less loney.

Running your own business is hard and knowing where to focus your time and energy can be incredibly overwhelming. Believe me when I say I’ve been there.

I use my experience of growing my own businesses and working with senior management teams to help founders achieve their goals.
