Reputation in Business: Lessons for Leaders

Reputation in Business: Lessons for Leaders

Posted by: on Mar 17, 2022 | No Comments

I am pleased to announce that my new book will be released in late 2022 by Routledge.

The book is a compelling mix of reputation management, crisis leadership and the role of politics in business, this book provides unique practical steps that leaders can take to protect their reputations and those of the organisations they head in an ever-more open social media-led world.

Although leaders increasingly recognise the vital intangible asset that reputation represents, too many do not really understand what reputation is and the steps that should be taken to build it and their corporate value. Given the range of factors depending on the organisation, each aspect of its complex reputational story needs to be unpicked if a reputation is to be built, maintained and protected. This step by-step-guide offers advice on how to develop the strategies needed to do this, provides clear lessons throughout from a range of experts – and distinctively, looks beyond the corporate sector to charities, governments, NGOs and the public sector.

Boards, trustees, non-executive directors, senior management, and leaders of all types of organisations need to consider the steps that should be taken to build, maintain and defend their reputation, and that means knowing what their reputation is and the audiences that matter most to them. This book is the roadmap.

More details will be released nearer publication but in the meantime please email me,

Welcome to the world of political counterfactuals, where scholarly analyses of possibilities and causalities take their place beside enthralling fictional accounts of alternate political histories – all guaranteed to enlighten and entertain (or make you shudder at the thought).

From a permanent union between France and the UK in 1940, to a ‘Yes’ vote in the Scottish independence referendum of 2014, to Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister in 2020, get ready to see a century of political history turned on its head with twenty-three expert examinations of things that never happened (or likely never will) – but easily could have if events had so conspired…

Read my chapter on what is…? David Miliband had beaten Ed Miliband to the Labour leadership?
