  • 3. What’s Guiding the Industry … And PRSA
    • Business Value of Public Relations
      • Increased value of PR due to reputational & market challenges
    • Modernizing Traditional Ethical Standards
      • Every week, new technologies & channels come online
        • How well do our ethical standards work for today’s modern marketing challenges?

    • Reputation Management
      • Ask the public: CEOs need better reputations
        • 2011 Edelman Trust Barometer found that trust in U.S. businesses down to 46%
          • Barely higher than last-place Russia
      • 2009 McKindsey study found that reputation risk was top concern of CEOs
        • 50 percent of CEOs feel unprepared for managing reputational threates
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 5. New Reality in Reputation Management
    • Year of the “Gotcha!” Moment
      • November Forbes article reveals WikiLeaks planning mass assault on corporations
      • New, transient whistle-blower groups popping up everywhere
        • WikiLeaks is best known, but watch out for OpenLeaks, Brilliant Yes Men, etc.
    • Technology, Not Insight & Experience, Dictates Reputation Management
      • Like it or not, we’re largely at the whim of technology we’ve readily embraced
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 6. Public Relations Opportunities

    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009 … But growing strong in global markets, especially BRIC countries Source: 2011 Edelman Trust Barometer
  • 7. The Ethical Approach: Disclosure
    • We must advise clients & employers to be transparent as possible
      • Doesn’t mean taking unnecessary risks with information
      • Confidentiality still matters & should be respected
      • Now is about communicating how you manage a business
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 8. Image vs. Reputation
    • Paradoxically, image often matters more than reputation
      • Reputation is hard-earned; image can often be fleeting
      • 2010 Inc. magazine article noted that 60 percent of employees don’t trust executives to turn business around
      • Commitment to building reputation is antidote to crowded & hyper marketplace of ideas, products & services
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 9. Trust in CEOs: Credibility Matters
    • Trust in CEO as credible resource on rise in U.S. & globally
      • Stands at 34% in U.S. & 50-plus globally
      • CEOs benefitting from transparency in communications
      • CEO is more than manager — chief communicator of how business is ethically managed

  • 10. WikiLeaks: Public Enemy No. 1?
    • Yes … and No.
      • Viewing WikiLeaks as enemy threat to biz would be mistake
      • Should be seen as an opportunity
        • Global call to action for more corporate transparency
      • Still, significant corporate reputational threats on the horizon
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 11. Modern Ethics for Modern Business Challenges
    • Traditional Ethical Standards Must Meet Today’s Marketing Challenges
      • PR’s rapid & successful adoption of technology
        • Dramatically increased our value
    • Increased value comes with increased responsibility
      • We must rewrite the rules of engagement
        • Bring ethical standards up to speed with today’s challenges & opportunities
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 12. Disclosure in Digital Age
    • We’re in an era where disclosure in digital/social comms isn’t in vogue
      • Disclosure of relationships, motivation & compensation
      • Take reasonable steps to inform consumers
      • Provide links to info on all uses for data
      • Where material connections exist btw. brand & bloggers
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 13. Diversity in the Profession
    • Not just a catch-all anymore — now core focus of PRSA’s advocacy

      • Businesses seeking more global perspective to comms & marketing
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
  • 14. The Business Value of Diversity
      • “ By incorporating different types of voices to tell an organization’s story, it can only enrich the communications capabilities while adding to the creative mix. Diversity in communications also can mean building bridges to new audiences or tapping into new perspectives and ideas.” 
      • — Larry Jones, PRSAY blog, Feb. 1, 2011
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009

    • Like Diversity, Research in PR Has Progressed …
      • … Still, there is more that should be done
      • Funding for PR research & education remains in its infancy
        • Only $15 million devoted in 2010
    Miami PRSA – April 8, 2009
