Power to the People:

Wendy Knowler looks at how technology has shifted the power balance between companies and consumers in the past two decades. The days of corporates being able to control customer complaints within the privacy of call centres and email acccount are long over. Yet many corporates still try to maintain control on social media with stock responses and very obvious attempts at taking complaints off line.

Unpacking epic corporate fails:

When companies and their products hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons (think Ford Kuga and Enterprise polony) they tread a very fine line between reputation damage limitation and heeding the advice of their “don’t admit liability” attorneys. In detailing many of the high profile corporate crises she has reported on over the years, Wendy Knowler gives valuable, practical advice on what to do – and what not to do – when your worst PR nightmare happens.
