Webinar: Your reputation: how to protect and grow your brand during turbulent times – 7 October @ 1pm
We are often asked about what we can learn from other industries in terms of marketing and reputation. To meet this demand Simon Calver, the former CEO of LoveFilm and Mothercare, will talk frankly about how he managed the reputation of these companies through their heydays and dark times and what professional services firms can learn. Our exceptional panel also includes senior lawyers from the UK, South Korea and Nigeria who will give the professional services perspective on how to not only protect but also build your reputation during a crisis.
The media perspective comes from Victoria Macdonald, Health and Social Care Editor at Channel 4 News, one of the leading correspondents breaking stories throughout COVID-19.
