Reputation management (RM) is a concept at the core of the communication profession, and in today’s fast-paced digital world, reputations can be made or lost in the blink of a digital eye.

This six-part program will examine reputation, establishing a reputation, building and enhancing a reputation, reputational leadership, withstanding challenges, and importantly, rebuilding a reputation when needed.
