Hi! I'm Jacob,
founder of Bolsta Digital...

... and a certified data-nerd, curious question-asker, passionate problem-solver.

I've worked with schools for over seven years: in-house, as a freelancer and as Head of Operations with a creative agency

One thing has always made me excited; partnering with passionate, capable marketing managers who are overwhelmed with a lack of resources. 

They are usually incredible 'doers'; the hands, feet and heartbeat of their organisation. 

But too often they're overwhelmed by daily tasks, lacking the resources and strategic guidance to elevate their efforts. 

Bolsta is a trusted ally for marketing specialists seeking to deliver exceptional work amidst the chaos of daily demands.
