Politik Announces Clientele, a Strategic Advisory and Intelligence Initiative

Politik, a global technology media company, is pleased to announce the launch of a strategic advisory and intelligence initiative called Clientele. 

Clientele will be led by Edward Wilson-Smythe, Principal and Digital Practice Lead at Avasant and former Vice President, Consulting at Gartner. Politik was recently recognized as one of the Top 70 digital leaders in San Francisco by the United Nations.

Clientele will focus on developing insights and delivering strategic advice related to the disruptive impact of technology on individuals, enterprises, communities and societies, and the resultant impact on broader socio-economic trends.  This is possible due to the incredible confluence of talent, vision and courage that Politik has assembled in its Counsel, a jaw-dropping network of world-leading experts, and its broader ecosystem of like-minded individuals and organizations. Clientele leverages and integrates the best insights from this ecosystem to create and deliver strategic advice and intelligence to our members across multiple channels including direct interaction, media and events.

“Through Clientele, Politik will bring direct and provocative insights that go beyond a focus on profit generation and the constraints of narrow special interests and imperialistic protectionism,” said Robert Brennan Hart, Founder and CEO of Politik.  “Clientele will provide current and emerging leaders with advice and direction on how to influence, accelerate and navigate human evolution into a more participatory, equal and open model economy and society.  We will combine the very best of the Politik ecosystem to provide insurgents with a blueprint for driving a new socio-economic order and incumbents with a path of survival and relevancy.”

”I am thrilled to join Politik and lead the Clientele initiative. This role ties in perfectly with and extends my current focus on digital business strategy and the digital economy.” said Edward Wilson-Smythe.  “We are at the cusp of the greatest change in the human condition since the advent of the industrial age. Politik takes a much-needed stand for evolution and progress, and against the forces of incumbency, privilege and exclusion. I am honoured to be part of this collective, and together we will ensure that 2015 is indeed Year Zero in the next stage of human evolution.”

Join the Politik counsel as they explore the relationship between people, technology and the reinvention of capitalism at Substance.  The inaugural version of Substance will be held at the W Hollywood in Los Angeles on October 15 and 16, 2015 and features Robert Herjavec, Star of “Shark Tank”; Naomi Klein, Author of “This Changes Everything”; Blake Irving, CEO of GoDaddy and Robin Chase, CEO of Buzzcar.
