About Us

Authenticate our True Colours

We help ourselves by helping others first

Our identity

As True Leaders, every word we use is purposeful, every claim genuine, every promise kept and every action meaningful

Identity: Who we are on the inside

Some sell services, we deliver change

If you could change anything you wish, what would you change first? We chose to help you and all others - not ourselves.

Pioneering a brand new industry on the world stage anchored in breakthrough Quantum Mechanics, we are Humanity's first incidence of a 'Clarketech'. As in, what we do appears (to some) like magic.

Welcome to the Change Engine.

Purpose: The reason we exist

To create, protect and drive meaningful change, we boldly go

The (Boltzmann) brains behind The Deilightful Group, we actualise any meaningful change imaginable, solve any wicked problem, tackle misinformation, realise sweet success, help the helpless and ensure others can reach full potential. Real deeds. Not empty words.

We succeed by never judging another, shining our light on darkness, fighting hatred with true love, applying equal and opposite force, being authentic and valuing uniqueness.

Principles: The rules that govern our behaviour

Let's get real. Diversity. Doesn't. Matter.

Some sell products, we fulfill hopes and dreams. Some target difference, we value uniqueness. Some deliver services, we create change. Some use words, we take action. Some blame others. We blame hatred. Some have egos, we espouse confidence. Some plead ignorance, we exhibit wisdom. Some have perspective, we see everything. Some are consciously biased, we are fully conscious. Some help themselves, we help others first.

We see your differences. But we don't discriminate. Because we love you for them. We value uniqueness. Without it, life wouldn't be worth living.

Strategy: How we deliver sweet success

Tired trying to fit it? Then stand out instead

Vividly espousing courage, conviction, authenticity, worthiness, determination, imagination, wisdom, tolerance, true love and true leadership in all we do, we are deilightful.

Our work is currently focused around 4 core workstreams:

  • Humanities: Charity, Aid, Human Rights, Health and Environment

  • Leadership: Business, Strategy, Advice and Government

  • Science: Education, Academia, Research and Wicked Problems

  • Space: Megastructures, Exploration, Diplomacy and Security

Our deilightfully fun journey

We were created in London UK by our Founder of Light, Ian Clarke, on 22nd September 2021

Our story so far

Our birth: Project Speak Up 2021

Our birth: Project Speak Up 2021

Goal: The single biggest individually led change initiative in global banking history (Complete, Success)

In 2021, our Project Speak Up Report and Change Plan rocked the world of financial services, and led to 7 new world records including the first black female board appointment in investment banking history. Authoring and leading it ended our founders career (and almost his life) but also birthed a new industry and field of science. Crucially, it gave us unique information and insight on Earth into A) the scientific causes, workings and cure for hatred, and B) the ubiquitous absence of all competent authority and true leadership globally today. Be inspired to drive change...


Our growth: Project Deilicious 2022

Goal: Actualising a new firm - the worlds first authentic D&I consultancy (Complete, Success)

In 2022, we set about creating a D&I power brand. Yet despite being fronted by 2 highly regarded Titans of Change embodying every protected characteristic between them, membership of 6 marginalised collectives, 11 change world records, 12 awards plus a uniquely authentic True Leadership training program, sadly not a single Fortune500 firm would agree to buy even $1 of services from us. It proved to us A) no firm wants D&I to be authentic, and B) the D&I industry is beyond reprieve. So we changed our strategy accordingly, from D&I Consultancy to something more compelling.

Our growth: Project Deilicious 2022
Our arrival: Project Revelation 2023

Our arrival: Project Revelation 2023

Goal: Pioneer a brand new industry anchored in breakthrough science, for the first global application of 'Change Engine' technology (Complete, Collecting)

Capping off our 2-year special scientific investigation, we attempt to conclusively define human identity for the first time with robust science. Along the way, we’ll equip you with answers to some of life’s biggest questions, the solutions to many of its biggest challenges and even blow the lid on the biggest conspiracy in history. These findings and more in our book The Sciences of Change.


Our intervention: Project David 2023

Goal: Evidenced to a scientific standard, we identify and explain the 14 causes and wider effects of the war between Israel and Palestine, plus reveal the sole viable path to ceasefire and resolution (Complete, Collecting)

Israel's all-out declaration of war against its Palestinian neighbours followed a brutal yet sophisticated and coordinated strategic assault by Hamas levelled at targets across the nations south. Yet there is more to the situation than meets the eye. Independent, apolitical, impartial, fully evidenced, free, comprehensive and conclusive. To explore the wars history, causality and the sole viable path to peace, read our...

Our intervention: Project David 2023
Our future: Project Regenesis 2024

Our future: Project Regenesis 2024

Goal: Exploring the workings of science and science making, to help you answer any question, solve any problem or discover any thing imaginable. (In Progress, Actualising)

Today, science is written by 'doctors' and 'professors' with no understanding of how or why we make discoveries. Philosophy and wicked problems don't nicely slot into narrow boxed 'sciences', as academia has structured itself. And the pressure to make money by 'getting published' now far outweights the importance and relevance of integrity, curiosity or competency. Thus the Sagan Standard. Our forthcoming book 'Science Making: For great minds only' exists to help you save science and advance scientific endeavour.

We value authenticity. Because few are authentic

Like all humans, our identity drives our behaviour, and our behaviour drives our identity. Our values aren’t imposed on our people. They come from our people. Because we only employ authentic Human's, allow them to choose their purpose and equip them with the tools to succeed. Being deilightful, we aren't afraid to stand out as Special. Because we are Wise Human Beings, and there is no stronger label imaginable.



Whether an individual, firm or government, stealing success from failure can only stem from having a meaningful and differentiated purpose.

Not vacuous words knowingly meaningless to firm, staff and customers. Real purpose that truly matters, and which vividly is both lived and breathed by every being, process, product and communication the firm collects. From there spawns all things - worthiness, uniqueness, value, potential, authenticity, impact, legacy, sales, profit, results - everything. We're always clear on our authentic goals and vividly purpose them in all we say and do.



Knowledge is power. Ignorance is bliss. But only curiosity is deilightful.

From art to science to celebrity, the most valuable perspectives are always the rarest. Yet today, both individually and as a species, most wrongly assume what they can’t do can’t be done, and what they don’t know doesn't exist. Wise Humans understand we know very little, so actively seek out and listen to – never dismiss – unique new perspectives.



Diversity doesn't matter. Because all difference is entirely arbitrary and meaningless.

From the shape of our ear lobes to the pattern of our footprints, every Human is unique. It's this uniqueness that makes us the only species on Earth delimited from lines of longitude. We can literally live anywhere by changing ourselves or creating change. All value stems from it. So we accept, embrace, explore and nurture it, wherever we find it. Standing out takes courage. Because fitting in takes nothing.



Without authenticity, there can be no reality. Deeds, not words.

Say what you see, not what you want to see. Better yet ask why you see what you think you see and listen impartially to the answer. We always project trust, respect, honesty, directness, tolerance, fairness and accountability in our dealings with others. We take responsibility for our changes, we keep our promises, we tell only the truth - no matter how hard it is to hear - and we help (never hurt) those we serve.

Our reviews

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. - Sir Winston Churchill (We/Human)

No perspective is ever incorrect to its originator

"Working to eliminate racism, we are proud to call Ian Clarke our friend."
Ian reminds us all what is to be human, and the damage done by narrow perspectives.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Deilight Consulting on our Diversity & Inclusion statement. Ian's knowledge and insights on this topic was extremely helpful. Can highly recommend.

Thus, every perspective is correct

A fabulous interview, Ian Clarke you are such an inspiration.
Deilight's origins in Project Speak Up is very remarkable, for its courage and commitment to authentically take on major world problems like diversity and inclusion. In particular, its ability to drive change and generate global ripple effects is notable and very impressive.
Ian is a shining example of the progress in our industry and offers unique insights on the dialogue around Diversity & Inclusion and representation in finance.

But only all of them give us a complete picture of reality

Just organised my first workshop with the team at Deilight. Top quality service and a really experienced facilitator for the day. We tackled some important/weighty topics: what is means to be human, identity, the power of bias and how to Speak Up effectively and I am really glad we drafted in a team of this calibre to do them justice. Thanks to Ian & his team!
Ian was absolutely incredible as a guest speaker in our school. He delivered such an empowering speech to the students and stayed behind afterwards to go through our history and PSHE curriculum to ensure diversify and inclusion. His hard work and dedication were incredible and we can't wait to welcome him back to our school!
Ian delivered an amazing key note speech at our awards ceremony last week. As an alumni of WCGS it was wonderful to welcome him back. How he was able to connect with students who perhaps don't feel they fit was inspirational. We can't wait to welcome him back.
