Smart Insight on Reputation

With all the bad news today, I was musing about the value of reputation. Does reputation matter? In an email exchange with a fellow reputation “junkie,” it was all cleared up. I saw the light. Joy Sever, reputation strategist and entrepreneur, wrote back to me with a very perceptive response about reputational worth. She said, “…where there’s a perception, there’s a reputation.” Oh how right she is! 
Thanks Joy for the smart insight.  I feel better already.

As Weber Shandwick’s Chief Reputation Strategist, I focus on the ever changing world of reputation. For the past 25 years, I have relentlessly observed, researched and commented on the rise and fall of reputations.

    With all tangible assets going down the tube, reputation may be the only thing left to matter!

    I agree with Joy too: I find it amazing how simplified the most complex things should be.I’ll be doing a breakfast conversation with you in Seattle at the Columbia Tower Club on Oct 21st. Drop me an e-mail and we’ll connect up and chat.
