We help others before we help ourselves
Unwrap our identity, goals and values
Award winners, trail blazers, world record holders, do gooders, community representatives, business leaders and people people, we are Human Being's. Our people didn't learn this - they live it. If you can put aside our differences to embrace uniqueness, we're ready to delimit your potential.
Our purpose drives and guides us
We protect Humanity from hatred, so it can achieve its potential.
By shining our Light on Darkness, fighting Hatred with Love and rewarding those with authentic curiosity by unlocking their full potential or making changes on their behalf. Our purpose drives everything we do. Our courage ensures we remain true to our purpose.
Some deliver Services, we create Change
To improve is to change. To be perfect is to change often. We change continuously, because we're Deilightful.
If you had our power - to change anything you wish - what would you choose to change first? We chose to create safe spaces and happy workplaces where all humans can achieve their potential through the 4 drivers of all Human Value which we adopt as our own values: Uniqueness, Authenticity, Sapience and Purpose.
Change. It starts with us
Understand our past to understand our nature
We were born out of 2021’s Project Speak Up - the single biggest single sapience change event in financial services history. Led by our Founder, Ian Clarke, this first test of Clarketech delivered 5 world records for Change after hitting the news in 120 countries, including the first black female board appointment in global banking history.
Let's be real. No one values difference.
We see your differences. But we don't discriminate. We value uniqueness.
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.
Tired of fitting in? Stand out instead
Move beyond the performative to see and understand more, stand out, think differently, behave authentically, outperform financially, drive change, become successful and keep promises.
Founded in Black History Month 2021, we are unique on Earth. As scholars of Humanism, we alone possess the keys to tackling the world's most wicked problems. Multi-world record breaking, multi-award-winning leaders in Human Uniqueness, Authenticity, Sapience and Perspective, we work holistically to ensure you reach your full Potential - either individually, as an organisation, community or government. We see your differences but we don't discriminate. We value uniqueness.
What do you want to change first?
Create better leaders, cultures, discoveries, teams, ideas, decisions and results. As authentic promise keepers - Emitters of Light - we always practice what we preach and we never break a promise.
Humanity's first incidence of a Clarketech, we're pioneering our own discovery of the Humanistic Science of Sapient People-Driven Change and Culture Transformation to deliver our singular core offering. Some deliver services. We deliver Meaningful Positive Change. Our 4 sapience service groups - Wisdom and Leadership, People and Teams, Identity and Communication, Curiosity and Discovery - are each special, but work best together (just like people).
You made some brave promises about changing for the better. We help you keep them, safely, meaningfully and profitably. Be curious. Become Deilightful.
Ever played 'would you rather?'
We're ready when you are
Talk the Talk
Change performatively, until real change is forced upon you
Endure constant criticism and judgments alongside escalating legal and people risks to constantly underperform versus competitors. Consistent ‘bad luck’ that’s actually an absence of adequate challenge (due to nepotism, tribalism and/or discrimination) plus double standards and toxic masculinity disguised as leadership. Ultimately, you disappear forever.
Walk the Walk
Become Deilightful to change meaningfully, safely and lucratively
Experiment and make mistakes to keep promises meaningfully. Boost revenue, improve reputation, attract broad top talent and sell more products by looking beyond white male communities. Turbo charge productivity, retention, collaboration and innovation through psychological safety, infrastructural meritocracy and truly valuing difference in all your do. Reach your full potential.

Our core competencies and values
Being different already, we value authenticity
Because we’ve been punished all our lives for being true to our Human Nature.
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 and then equip them with the tools to self-actualise. We stand out as Special because we are ourselves an organization delimited of oppression. We are Deilightful.
We are adept at using wisdom, abstract thought and complex reasoning to reliably predict outcomes and give complete advice that gets to the heart of any problem or pursuit, enabling our clients to consistently make the right decisions for commercial success. After all, wherever there is a will, there is a way.
Empowered by our own ground-breaking discoveries into Human Identity, Behaviour and Choice, our understanding of Humanity is unique on Earth. Sure, we still fail and make mistakes. It makes us stronger, better, more compassionate and tolerant of the mistakes of others. But we actively seek out knowledge and different perspectives, to forever become wiser with every interaction, growing forever better at our craft.
Being the real deal, we recognise people are scared of making mistakes or appearing ignorant. So we never criticise or take offence at those who, with good intentions, dare to change for the better. Instead, we listen, understand, challenge and help them grow ever more authentic towards their targeted change state.
DE&I is complicated, because its an acronym for Humanity. Our authenticity helps us adapt to represent anyone, bridging the leadership/employee and academia/business interests divide. Change is scary, we know. So we create psychologically safe spaces where freed minds can be themselves, experiment and make mistakes safely. We help bring out the best in everyone, not our version but theirs. We help firms who want to keep their promises, not those that want to hide their mistakes.
Driving Change is a lonely path. Daring to dream. Having the courage to stand out. Thinking differently. So we don't judge people for being different. Different perspectives don't scare us. Instead they magnetically attract our curiosity. We champion those who dare to dream and reveal their uniqueness, because we understand that it takes uniqueness to create change. We access every corner of Human perspective, character, trait and capability to do what we do. Nobody makes it alone.
We help others before we help ourselves. We care about Humanity and the future, not about arbitrary differences that lesser people claim should divide us. We are Humans, so we put Human's are at the heart of all we do whilst role modelling the best in Humanity for others to aspire to. We bring people together, and reward them for thriving the hard way, through love, curiosity and altruism. Not divide and conquer, that's far too easy.
Creating change requires ambition. And the only limit is our imagination. We imagine an end state and work backwards, whilst seeing more of the current state and working forwards to simultaneously arrive at our goals. Because we listen to people and understand it is not possible to know all there is to know. We don't care about labels. Any Human can help us thrive, so we will help any Human thrive too.
Broader perspectives give us confidence and capability to instinctually promote a progressive agenda, allowing us to smile and laugh through uncomfortable conversations that paralyse others. We see and understand more, to come up with better ideas while accurately detecting authenticity in others to guide our decisions and priorities. As others fear it, we love different perspectives, ideas, people, competition and challenge, because each one makes us better at changing the future.

"I exist to create change and ensure humanity can reach its full potential. So I'm bringing good people together today, coaching them to accept themselves and unlocking their full potential so that together we can make existence great again. Only this time, for everyone."
Forget Quiet Quitters. True leaders have the courage to be authentic. In 2021 Ian hit headlines and made history after calling out racism – the only investment banker ever to publicly do so – ushering in 5 D&I world records for change, including the first ever black female board appointment at a major international bank in history.
Described by Treasury Today magazine in 2020 as 'a shining example of the progress in our [financial services] industry, Ian offers unique insights on the dialogue around diversity, inclusion and representation'. Forget quiet quitters, true leaders have compassion. I left my career in 2021 after calling out racism – the only investment banker ever to publicly do so – ushering in 4 more D&I world records for change.
We want to help the curious succeed
