About Us

Social Beast was formed in 2017 by James Flaherty, who, after working for major brands, global agencies and independent boutique advisors, decided to offer an alternative – affordable, tailored and impactful marketing solutions built on need, not just what an agency has in its bag of tricks.

Specialising in working with interesting people who do interesting things, Social Beast has become the trusted advisor to businesses looking to tell their story, connect with their customers and do so easily, simply and without the need to constantly budget more and spend more on complex services that don’t do what you need them to do; connect with your audiences.

And the name? Well why have a social animal, when you can have a Social Beast?
