Alastair Banks

Director of Optix Solutions - UK Digital Marketing Agency

I started my main business Optix Solutions, a digital marketing agency when I was just 19 out of a bedroom at Exeter University with a few course mates. Over the last 17 years that company has grown into one of the leading digital agencies in the South West, employing over 15 people and working with the likes of Exeter University, Stags Estate Agents, Ashfords Solicitors and the NHS. 

I have a passion for public speaking and have talked at events all over Europe. I have spoken on Exeter University's One Planet MBA as well as the prestigious MBA program at London Business School both on the topic of digital trends. 

I have a keen interest in Entrepreneurship and sit on the board of a number of other companies. I run my own YouTube channel giving advice and tips to budding entrepreneurs.

I live in Exeter with my wife Lizz, two children Oscar (2) and Alexa (3 months), my dog Freddie and cat Wilbur. I'm a fanatical skier and support West Ham as well as The mighty Exeter Chiefs. You can find me on almost every social media site so please look me up and engage, after all thats what social media is about right?
