Being a firm believer in the quality of Hill and Knowlton's distinctive competence as an international communications consultancy, I admit some reluctance to drawing attention to a competitor's blog.
However, I just came across Leslie Gaines-Ross' blog called 'reputationxchange'. Ms Gaines Ross is with a competitor agency. Neverthless, she has always been a thought leader in addressing questions of a CEO's responsibility (in addition to devising business strategies and -- in a few cases -- managing the beneficial timing of grants of stock options) for building and defending corporate reputation .
The opportunity to read what she is thinking in near real time about these and other reputational matters is just one more benefit of social media.
