START THE CONVERSATION

Right, where are you?

At Disquiet Dog we help you to deal positively with digital uncertainty. We engineer solutions to help educational establishments' transition to digital thinking, however far along you are. We can do the fancy pants stuff like organization-wide digital integration, catalyzing culture change and engaging everyone along the way. We can do simpler things like help ensure you know why you're doing social media. Or we can just stick the kettle on and have a digital coaching session so you feel able to cope with it all. First and foremost though, we'll create a safe space for your questions and concerns; and your hopes and aspirations. You will feel in control and part of the solution. Let's get cracking.

mission and vision

Taking a look at your digital future frequently requires you to reappraise your guiding principles. And your culture might need a tweak. Hold on tight.

collective content

You can pay us to write endless content to keep you visible, but better to engage your staff to do it. Compare and contrast.

life relief

Sometimes engaging your people starts with letting go, and creating a safe space. We have a secret weapon, and it's very, very funny.

reaching overseas

The international education sector uses traditional approaches well, and digital approaches scantily. The revolution will be digitised.

MEET THE TEAM

These people are experts in their field. We blend their skills according to your objectives and your current position. With most of our clients, we'll start with a period of consultancy - maybe a day a week at most. We can work with all of your existing suppliers, or we can knit together a solution using some of these amazing people.
