Who We Are


Cact.us is a consultancy firm, founded by Spencer Gallagher & Pete Hoole, that helps ambitious creative agencies grow faster. Spencer founded Bluhalo, a marketing agency in 1999. With Pete as his FD, the business grew a staggering 1,100 percent between 2002 and 2007, before being sold to Gyro International, the world’s largest independent b2b marketing agency. 

Spencer & Pete set up The Agency Collective to pass on the things they learnt on their growth journey, as well as sharing insight from the UK's current top performing creative agencies. They know what it takes to grow quickly and have designed a programme to help agency owners achieve similar super-fast growth. 


The Wow Company is a proactive firm of accountants that work with agencies across the UK, from start-up to £5m turnover. They've worked with hundreds of creative businesses over the years and noticed that agencies didn't just need help with the numbers as they grew. There were common challenges that all agencies were facing in winning new business, finding talent, managing teams, controlling cash flow and running projects in a profitable way. 

Wow set up The Agency Collective to provide agency owners with the chance to share their experiences & best practice to help them overcome these challenges, make more profit and grow quicker.
