Our philosophy / 3P Communications™

We believe that in today’s world the strongest companies need to align their business and communications strategies around performance and purpose to drive audience preference.

We are leaving behind the post-industrial age when making the best product was enough and the information age when data was a differentiator. We are entering a new age, the Purposeful Age.

In this new age a traditional business plan and brand strategy is no longer enough, they are too easily pried apart and disrupted. In the Purposeful Age companies and institutions have the opportunity to join a meaningful conversation around things that matter, take their place in culture and demonstrate their responsibility to society. In an age of content overload, cutting though the content fog is key.

Our studio of over 35 multi-platform content creators, journalists and producers creates compelling narratives and turns them into disruptive content that cuts through when shared with the world.

At H+K our purpose in this new age is to inspire creative and curious conversations that help brands and the public communicate to build better outcomes for everyone. In order to do this we have developed our own communications model. We call it 3P Communications™.

Our people

The leaders of our business have both a breadth of experience and a depth of knowledge that allows them to leverage the network and provide specialised advice. Together they guide over 300 consultants with diverse expertise across strategy, content + publishing, providing insight-led ideas and communication strategies for our clients. We constantly strive to bring a diverse group of people together to answer our clients’ needs. We know that brands buy our people as much as they buy our agency and are committed to making them the best they can be.

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

The continuous evolution of the public is our greatest challenge and opportunity.

Today’s audiences are more demanding than ever. They are smarter, they are more inter-connected, and they expect more from brands and organizations.

They don’t simply want to know what you do. They want to know what you stand for, and they are exceptionally attuned to quick shifts in brand reputation.

Organizations need to communicate and connect with them in new ways.

At H+K, we understand and keep up with the perpetual motion of today’s global public. We reflect the voice of the public, at every intersection, especially when an important decision is at hand. Board level. Brand level. Reputation level. We help our clients communicate not just what they do, but what they stand for.

Our approach is rooted in your purpose and behavioral science. It focuses on creating engaging content that will connect with the audience across owned, earned, shared, and paid channels. Everything we do is underpinned by data and insights and brought to life by our exceptional talent.

Client “hive” teams

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.
