Leadership Crisis Management in the Digital Media Age /

A reputation crisis can break the most powerful politicians and governments, or bankrupt the biggest companies or banks. The new media age brings with it new communications challenges – effective leadership and a strong communications strategy are more essential than ever for existential survival during a reputation crisis.

Latvia is currently in the midst of a banking corruption scandal as it faces upcoming parliamentary elections. In the context of global online election meddling and the viral spread of ‘fake news’, there has never been a more crucial time to talk about the importance of crisis management for leaders. 

Alastair Campbell Keynote and Networking Event /

Join us for the exclusive ReputationTime keynote Leadership Crisis Management in the Digital Media Age featuring controversial communicator, writer and strategist Alastair Campbell. He will discuss the challenges and strategies for winning over people’s minds and hearts in today’s digitally disruptive media environment.

Often described as the second most powerful figure in Britain, Campbell is best known for his role as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications and strategy. He was pivotal to the founding of the New Labour party and their sensational election victory in 1997.

Known globally for his public relations and leadership expertise, Campbell has written fourteen books in the past ten years, including eight volumes of diaries, four novels, a personal memoir on depression and the pursuit of happiness, and “Winners and How They Succeed”, a Number 1 best-selling analysis of what it takes to win in politics, business and sport.

He writes a monthly interview for GQ magazine, and has covered figures as varied as Prince William and Jose Mourinho, Al Gore and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Passionate about sport, he was written about different sports for The Times, the Irish Times and Esquire magazine.

Era of Distrust – Protecting Your Reputation in the Digital Age

The disastrous removal of the United Airlines passenger and environmentally tragic BP oil spill are are only two instances out of countless other examples where inadequate communication on the part of a CEO has led to a corporation’s reputation being damaged, which in turn resulted in tremendous financial losses.

Why reputation matters to CEO’s

CEO’s and organisation’s key leaders are exposed like never before thanks to the social media era we live in. Not only are their business performances being appreciated or scrutinised, but also their behaviour, the way they communicate, the values they share, the consistency of their societal commitment, the way they treat employees – everything is scrutinized by a demanding audience in search of more transparency.


On May 12, 2017, for the third year, Riga hosted an international reputation management conference, ReputationTime, which was attended by more than 200 business leaders, communications and marketing professionals, influencers, media professionals and students from all over Europe.
