What used to be a "nice to have" is now considered a core asset that needs to be protected and actively managed. Reputational damage can hurt a company in many ways. New (especially user-generated) media and increased globalization have only accelerated this trend. In this session we will introduce new approaches to reputation management that add rigor to a notoriously vague and undefned area. We will frst discuss effective strategies to manage reputational crises and to interact with NGOs, interest groups and the media. We will then discuss the essential elements for creating a reputation man-agement capability and how to integrate such a capability with business practices and corporate strategy. LEARN HOW TO: ✔ Overcome direct challenges from infuential activist and political sources ✔ Manage corporate scandals ✔ Use external, unrelated events to boost reputation ✔ Build a reputation management process CONFERENCE TRACKS Foodservice/ Processing Retail/Marketing Business Leadership Food Safety and Compliance Sustainability The Boston conference program offers educational opportunities for everyone. 48_Conferences.indd 48 1/17/14 2:44 PM
