Blogging was where we began, and how we built our company so we have preserved this archive to show how our thinking developed over a decade of developing the use of social technology inside organisations

We are Dachis Group London :)


Two-and-a-bit years ago we were proud to announce that Headshift had joined the Dachis Group as its first acquisition. Since then we have worked hard behind the scenes to integrate our operations with the rapidly expanding Dachis Group global firm, and now we are ready to leave behind our Headshift identity and formally take the Dachis Group name and become the centre of its European operations.

What does this mean for our team? It’s getting bigger, and can take advantage of a wider range of global expertise within the group.

What does this mean for our focus and values? They remain unchanged!

What does this mean for our clients? Seamless access to the full range of DG’s global services, including Social Business Intelligence and Performance Brand Marketing as well as the Connected Company work for which we are perhaps best known in Europe. There are very few companies with our experience that can offer an integrated social business vision across both internal and external realms.

We have shifted a lot of heads in the past nine years. Ideas are good but projects are better. But you know what’s really cool? Building a substantial global firm that can help dynamic companies become social businesses, internally and externally, by providing a unique combination of people, process and social technology expertise. Social Business seems to have gone mainstream in the past year, and we are seeing more companies move from small tactical actions with ‘social media gurus’ to a more serious, business-like approach to social business. That’s what we are here for, and if you want to join us as a client, partner or consultant then let us know.

So, whilst you can expect the Headshift name and our trusty old blog to fade away over the coming months, you will find us sharing our thoughts and ideas just as enthusiastically as ever within the shiny new Dachis Group web site and on all the usual social channels.

    interesting. i am still not perfectly sure yet about the whole Dachis Group direction, but it is inevitable, i guess. someone has to do this. good luck! (and wondering whether Dachis Group will finally invade Germany, of course.)
