PETITION is an a$$-kicking newsletter for people who want to better understand the effects of disruption, from the vantage point of the disrupted.

Our Members are a highly targeted group of investors, lawyers, investment bankers, consultants, C-suiters, board-of-director-types, and others trying to keep up with rapid change and the disruption that comes with it.

Some recent newsletters include:

  1. 🍟Casual Dining is a Hot Mess🍟(Members’-only)

  2. 👎Nobody Wants a David's Bridal Dress👎 

  3. ✌🏾Peace Out Nine West✌🏾(Members’-only)

We send two newsletters a week: a robust a$$-kicking “Member Email” on Sundays and a shorter “Freemail” on Wednesdays. To receive our shorter Wednesday “Freemail", you don't need to do anything other than subscribe. Just sit there, bill hours, and inwardly pose existential questions. You'll be in our group of free riders...we mean, uh, "freemailers." 

To receive our more robust a$$-kicking Members’-only Sunday briefing, you have two options:

1. Founding Membership ($299/person-per-year). This gets you:

  • the Wednesday and Sunday briefings,

  • special exclusive content we'll publish for Founding Members only,

  • the occasional "Ask Me Anything" with the PETITION team, and

  • first look at any new initiatives we can get off the ground (e.g., new content distribution channels, etc.). 

Our subscriptions are designed for individuals but we'll accommodate group subscriptions (of 10+ people). Founding Member Groups (of 10+ people at a single firm) are also eligible to get:

  • special mention as a Founding Member Group here on our website and in the first newsletter after we consummate the relationship, and

  • first dibs at requests for Notice of Appearance which gives a member of your team an opportunity to let his/her personality shine in Q&A format.

Some of the firms that have become Founding Member Groups of PETITION include Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, AlixPartners LLC, SierraConstellation Partners and Gavin/Solmonese.

2. Regular Membership ($162/per-person-year or $15/month). This gets you:

  • the Wednesday and Sunday briefings,

  • access to our Members’-only archive, and

  • nothing else other than a seat at the kid’s table.

This is also open to groups. For more information about Founding Member or Regular Member groups , please email us at petition@petition11.com.

Why do professionals from these and many other shops become Members? They use our insights to, among other things, be more conversant in the market, source business, impress potential mates in bars (you know it’s true), and develop advisory strategies. So, basically, our Members are taking mental PEDs and you're not. Pro tip: you might want to level the playing field by joining.
