Reputation in today’s hyper-connected broadband society is more valuable than money.  Getting the right job, securing a place to stay, and even our love lives are dictated by the reputations that surround us.  It’s a game that we are all in, whether we like it or not.  David Waller and Rupert Younger, co-authors of ‘The Reputation Game’ will discussion how our personal and corporate reputations are created and destroyed in the digital age referencing ten years of academic research and interviews ranging from Jay-Z to Bernie Madoff. Their book The Reputation Game: The Art of Changing How People See You (Hardback)  published in October 2017, has had top ratings (4.3 on Amazon) and excellent reviews: ‘Trust is the foundation of friendship, society, business, and brand. A must-read for those who intend to build a reputation of authenticity and enduring value.’ --Biz Stone, Co-founder, Twitter`In life and in business a good reputation is probably our most prized possession, hard won and easily lost. This book provides insight into the sources of reputation, illustrates by case study the impact of loss and charts the route to recovery. It is a valuable contribution to this increasingly important topic.' -- Sir Roger Carr, chairman of BAE Systems`You'll learn why reputations are more valuable than money; you'll learn how they're built and tended and enriched; and how, if neglected, they can catastrophically implode. It might have been called, "How to ensure that everybody knows just how good you know you are really."' -- Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPPBiographies of the Speakers RUPERT YOUNGER
