Bedrijven van allerlei afmetingen en uit allerlei sectoren hebben te maken met complexe uitdagingen op het gebied van reputatie management, regelgeving en communicatie. We bekijken ze tot in detail om te zien hoe we de uitdaging het beste aan kunnen pakken en hoe Grayling hier voordeel kan bieden.

Part 5: Critical Conditions

'The internet is not written in pencil.' Negative stories stick around, and with Google search the most used and most trusted source of news and information, this is the new reputation management battleground.

It is against this backdrop that we evaluated the brand search profiles of a cross-section of 50 international companies from the Fortune Global 500, taking a look at the biggest issues that affect them, and evaluating their reputational health.

Critical Conditions showcases the findings of our analysis - the different issues and their impacts on companies in the Travel, Health, Finance, Food and Drink, and Technology sectors. In the realm of 'too big to fail' brands, what factors contribute to or detract from their online brand resilience? And what lessons are there for other companies?

Part 4: Me, Myself and AI

Artificial Intelligence is here, today, but its impact is only just beginning to be felt. Across multiple industry sectors and every aspect of our lives, AI is set to transform the way we work, live and interact with companies, public sector organizations, and each other, opening up myriad opportunities, but also creating hazards and risks for those concerned with communication.

Part 4 of the Advantage Series expands upon one of the themes of Live Smart or Die - that of the impact of AI.

Me, Myself and AI gathers together a range of views from across the world, and looks at the potential impact – good and bad – on different industries, and the implications for professional communicators.

Part 3: Live Smart or Die

Technology is changing everything about the way we live. Our working patterns, the way we order food, even the way we meet potential partners – all are subject to massive behavioral change, driven largely by technology that we hold in our hands, whose power far exceeds that which propelled man to the moon.

Part 3 of the Grayling Advantage Series, Live Smart or Die, looks at the technological, societal and policy drivers that will define the next half century – and the changes that private, public and third sector organizations must embrace in order to remain relevant.

Live Smart or Die is essential reading for any organization that takes seriously the need to plan for the future, in order to minimize risk and create advantage.

Part 2: Regulatory Convergence

The gradual demise of divergent national regulations is inevitable as our economies, markets and societies globalize with exponential speed, and every day we see examples of regulatory convergence, whereby standards, policies and laws align across different geographies.

This convergence is occurring both bilaterally between countries, and at a regional/international and global level.

What does this mean for international organizations? How can they maximize the benefits and mitigate the risks associated with regulatory convergence?

The latest chapter in the Grayling Advantage Series examines this phenomenon in detail and provides some signposts to creating advantage.

Part 1: Brand Resilience

What we do has always been about minimizing risk and maximizing opportunity, through rigorous planning, senior strategic counsel, messaging and storytelling, and effective issues management.

But today, a brand is no longer what it says it is, but what Google says it is. And this era of transparency creates both risk and opportunity. To survive – and thrive – brands must increase their resilience, which demands not only different techniques, but different tools too.

The first chapter in The Advantage Series examines this issue of brand resilience, and what can be done to enhance it.
