Sunday, Oct. 14, 3–4:15 p.m.
Room: Nob Hill A - B
Track: Leadership & Management
In a day dominated by partisan bickering, declining societal standards and mistrust of authority,
no amount of paid communication or “messaging” can build and protect your brand and
reputation. It’s time to rethink how to build and protect your brand and reputation by earning the
good things others perceive and say about you and your organization. Join a lively discussion
that argues that reputation can only be built by standing up for what you stand for.
