  4. 4. #C2Webinar Don’t Be Old School! Old School Professional New School Professional We operate in a closed environment. We don’t share much publicly. We are open and transparent and welcome conversations with our community. Any type of PR is good PR. Bad PR will have negative consequences for our brand and how we are perceived. Shy away from criticism. It will fade away. We must address criticism immediately or it will erupt. If we don’t know the answers to questions – don’t say anything or spin it. Thank people for their question and let them know we are looking into it if we don’t know the answer.
