Handling a crisis and knowing how to manage the potential reputational damage that can occur has become a top priority for all businesses. Learn from international brands like Nestle, Unilever, McDonalds, Cadbury, RBS and more, to discover the value of reputation management and how to effectively and proactively approach the Corporate Social Responsibility of your business.
Whether it is an internal or external crisis, now more than ever brands and organizations are having to understand and respond rapidly to shifting public values, rising expectations, demands for public consultation and increasingly intrusive news media.
Crisis, Issues and Reputation Management defines and explores the value of reputation, providing practical guidelines for effective reputation management that will resolve issues with minimum damage and disruption to the business.
Showcasing a variety of crises through a range of case studies from international brands including Nestle, Unilever, General Electric, McDonald's, Coca-cola, Cadbury, Tesco, Pan Am, RBS and more, this definitive handbook provides a new and broader perspective on the topic for new and seasoned practitioners alike.
Practical and accessible, it outlines a comprehensive approach to managing situations that may turn into crises - and handling crises once they occur.
"crucial reading, not only for communication professionals, but for CEOs and board members, too....Griffin explores the anatomy of multiple high-profile corporate crises... [and puts] forward a number of new analytical models to help anyone responsible for protecting their organisation's reputation understand both how to manage a crisis and how to predict and prevent one before it materialises. In addition to this robust new theory, Griffin's book is full of practical tips. From detailed guidance on how to run a crisis exercise, to tried-and-tested advice on what messages will resonate with stakeholders in an emergency, the book provides a valuable manual for any company that wants to ensure it is crisis prepared." ― Communika (PRISA)
"I have read a few books in recent years on crisis and reputation management and this is by far the best. Griffin's latest offering [...] is easy to read and incredibly engaging. His 20 years of experience in reputation management really shines through. The book is constantly brought to life with a host of case studies and examples of firms that got their reputation management strategy wrong and are still paying the price (for example BP and the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster), compared with those that got it right (Tesco and the horsemeat scandal). [...] This book goes further than just a must-read for those in PR. As Griffin points out, BP, News International and the BBC have all faced scandals over the past few years that have been dealt with badly and resulted in CEOs stepping down and commercial damage. This book is surely a must-read for any CEO who values the reputation of their company and wants to preserve it for as long as possible." ― Lisa Elliot, PR Week
"The need to protect a company's reputation has become an ever more pressing concern for CEOs and corporate boards. This book, by a leader in the field, provides a comprehensive guide for leaders to get it right. Filled with case examples and useful concepts it belongs on every executive's desk." ― Dr Daniel Diermeier, Kellogg School of Management and author of Reputation Rules
"...a well laid-out, easy to follow, and practical book, with plenty of website links to follow [...] Griffin makes and authoritative and readable case for reputation and crisis management as something central to doing a business and running an organisation." ― Professional Security Magazine
"Beautifully written, practical, relevant, clear and usable. Should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in this area. This is the book I wish had been available when I first started learning about Crisis Management - an invaluable resource." ― Kieron O'Keefe, Head of Crisis Management, BG Group
