For Alisdair Blackman, the Owner and Principal Consultant of Digital Rehab, the sky is the limit. His digital marketing and project management consulting firm is one of the most experienced companies in Australia and across Asia. Digital Rehab’s industry expertise spans across the mining & resources, renewable energy, financial services, health, IT and technology, retail, engineering, and legal sectors.
Blackman’s background is varied having over 20 years’ experience in digital marketing, owning and funding four startups and in providing business coaching to young entrepreneurs while also being involved in a few mergers and acquisitions. He is a man of broad vision, which informs the way he and his team work. This experience has helped him shape and refine a number of methodologies including agile, hybrid, waterfall, and dynamic system development methods. From his experience, most organizations elect to use agile or hybrid methodologies in project delivery.
“Not only does Digital Rehab offer project management, digital strategy and planning, it offers complex strategic management consulting. Depending on requirement, we can also manage business system enhancement post release and drive strategic marketing,” says Blackman.
Digital Rehab employs a small team of eight people across Australia and Asia, each one of whom is a leader in their respective area.

Digital Rehab doesn’t only look at IT related projects, but manages anything transformative,which could be from a strategic stand point or a tactical standpoint
However, not all is unicorns and rainbows. “Each and every organization has growth and change management aspirations and this raises issues,” he continues, “The labour market is very tight and most organizations don’t have internal capability and capacity to manage and adapt to the ever-changing digital landscape. Instead, they look forward to appoint consulting firms such as Digital Rehab, to help them with the planning and execution of business change,” Blackman adds. His consulting firm has taken many Australian and Asian organizations through digital transformation by implementing the right digital tools and assets in order to realize efficiency and profitability gains.
Digital Rehab doesn’t only look at IT related projects, but manages anything transformative which could be from a strategic or a tactical standpoint in digital. The firm serves as the custodian of change. They adopt the right methodology and set an approach, which is relevant to each of their clients’ needs. Providing end-to-end solutions to its clients, Digital Rehab delivers its clients with the best possible solutions.
Over the past two decades, Digital Rehab has evolved to adapt to the highly dynamic market conditions. Blackman continues, adding that its clients now require a partner who can offer guidance and consultancy and advisory services, and aid them with this digital transformation.
The needs and appetite for digital expertise are widespread and organizations must find the right people for them, which is the hardest task for any company to undertake. Digital Rehab’s partnering approach with its clients makes perfect sense for organizations looking forward to change and those that want the right experienced team to help and guide them through the process of change.
