I just put the finishing touches on a presentation I’ll be giving September 6, 2012 at the Occupational Health and Safety 2012 Virtual Conference, entitled “10 Smart Strategies for Reputation Management after a Occupational Crisis.”  As I’ve been preparing my talk, I came across the following image:

While it is true that one moment can destroy a reputation that’s taken years to build, there are so many ways to safeguard reputation before and in the midst of the crisis.

I’ll share more specifics on this in future posts.
