About Hill+Knowlton Strategies

We help brands and the public communicate.

The communications landscape has changed. Change creates new challenges and opportunities. Our agency has changed and continues to do so; we are always in beta.

We are structured around three services: Consulting, Creating, and Connecting. Our cutting-edge proprietary products ensure that we have our fingers on the pulse of public sentiment, both locally and around the globe.

Introducing the Fifth Seat

H+K’s overriding beliefs about business are set forth in the trademarked Fifth Seat, pioneered by Chairman and CEO Jack Martin. This model defines and drives H+K’s work for C-suite clients around the world. Basic tenets of the Fifth Seat:

CEOs and their boards have traditionally turned to four key advisors when weighing decisions: lawyers (for legal implications), investment bankers (financial impact), management consultants (internal ramifications), and accountants (balance sheet considerations).

None of these four “seats” focus on the public as a discrete consideration. And yet, the public ultimately decides which businesses succeed — or fail — and at what pace.

H+K proudly occupies the fifth seat in the room – the one devoted expressly to all matters that concern the public. The Fifth Seat advisory model combines human and research-based insights and tools with a deep trove of creative ideation to provide C-suites with the frameworks they need to grow public trust into corporate success.

We bring the best teams together, regardless of geographical location. They are inspired to deliver great work, empowered by a shared approach, enabled by technology.
