Arti’s session – Active Reputation Management

The way we do business today is changing due to an evolving media landscape and reputation management is playing a huge part in that shift. Media exposure around the word ‘reputation’ has shot up by 108% in the last five years.

A strong business reputation can position you at the top of your market and firmly improve your bottom line. So it is important to understand business reputation is built on a number of key factors including your people and the quality of your product or service. However, most businesses make the mistake of seeing reputation as just the outcome of their communications.

It is also true that turning a bad news story around to a good one can make the difference to a company’s survival or demise. Business reputation is built on knowing what to say, how to say it and why you are saying it when things go wrong. A crisis management plan will ensure you are prepared, planned and can respond quickly in any situation.

Arti Halai will share her insight, experience and expertise to show you clearly how to manage and enhance your reputation, especially if you find yourself in a difficult situation.
