About Hill+Knowlton Strategies

Hill+Knowlton Strategies is an international public relations company with more than 80 offices around the world.

We believe that every corporate, every brand, every client has a public and today’s public is more powerful than ever before. The public has the power to topple CEO’s, reshape corporate and brand strategy, kill products and create unicorns. Today’s public demands truth, transparency and the highest behavioral standards. Because we’re organized along a sector model, our expertise is deep, and our client obsession means we are constantly evolving new products and services to help brands and the public communicate. We’re creative, data-driven, and always in beta.

Our belief is that those brands with a clear, authentic purpose are most likely to succeed, and their ideas are more likely to earn your attention. We call this approach to working with clients 3P Communications™: Performance + Purpose = Preference.

The Fifth Seat

We believe that today’s public is less siloed, more connected, and more powerful than ever before.

What makes H+K special is our ability to harness the power of the public in today’s turbulent times. We do this with our trademarked Fifth Seat, a revolutionary concept pioneered by Chairman and CEO Jack Martin. By putting trusted advisors in boardrooms with C-suite clients around the world, H+K interprets and capitalizes on public opinion to benefit brands in an unstable environment.
