How to Operate in a World Where Everything Is On The Record

Most organizations hope, or assume, no employee will make a glaring error in public — and if they do, a crisis management team can take care of it. But why suffer unnecessary damage to you or your organization’s reputation, especially if it is preventable for a cost far less than restoring a ruined reputation? 

How you act on social media and in public can directly impact your employer – either positively or negatively. Knowing how to safely navigate a digital world that sees all, hears all and tells all is more vital than ever. To do this, you need to understand the relationship between your personal brand and your employer’s brand whenever engaging on social media. 

Sports Business Radio Founder & Host, Brian Berger, joins FOX Sports NBA Analyst, Ric Bucher, in this webinar to educate leaders on how to not only survive, but thrive in a world where EVERYTHING is on the Record. You’ll learn techniques and strategies to help you act with more intention when posting on social media and avoid unintended consequences. The media, social or otherwise, is only a scary beast when you don’t know how to feed it.

Learn how to:

  • Identify how your personal social media actions can affect you and your employer
  • Protect your personal and employer’s brand by mindfully posting on social media
  • Recognize the people and organizations who can be impacted by your actions
  • Build rapport with the media by leveraging multiple platforms
