Monday, March 17 FREE Keynote Crisis Management ■ 2 – 3 p.m. Daniel Diermeier, Ph.D., Kellogg School of Management R eputation has moved to the top of the agenda for many CEOs and boards. 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 management 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 42_BehindTheLine_72Conferences_76Jump.indd 72 2/13/14 4:54 PM
