Let’s imagine that it’s the day of your annual appraisal. Your boss has said she wants to focus mainly on your leadership and opens by telling you that less than one in four of your colleagues actually think you’re a good leader.

Leadership has nearly nothing to do anymore with authority in the social media era. It is all about inspiration and ability to motivate people to follow you and rely on your ability to remain innovative, disruptive by often positioning yourself as a front runner. The fact that individuals all around the world do not trust anymore politicians, CEO’s, journalists does not mean they don’t want or need leaders.
I have just returned from the ReputationTime Paris conference. Our French partner, the founder of the conference and author of the idea, Christophe Ginisty, had invited to speak ten inspirational speakers who help change society, partly thanks to social media resources.
Friday, April 1, 2016, ReputationTime had sparkling Monthly Meetup. The main topic of the Meetup – inspirational speeches. As you may know, public speech is an integral part of the Public Relations, whether we have to write it or present it by ourselves. Some of them are so powerful that they immediately get viral. See which speeches caught ReputationTime Meetup participants eyes and ears.
When I went to school, one of the measurements of coolness was a statement that sounded something like: “I really don’t give a flying f*** what he (or she) thinks about me!” Let’s think about this subject together.

At our second ReputationTime Monthly Meetup Gin & Tonic Lunch we decided to share our recommendations on movies to watch. International conference ReputationTime will focus on reputation management and leadership, therefore we invited each participant to share their recommendations on movies to watch about leadership.
Bookmark this link as a list of the movies is quite long but definitely worth to watch as they are accurately chosen and each of them carries a meaningful story, values, and leadership characteristics. Hope you will find something for your taste. Save the date – next Monthly Meetup will be on April 1, 2016! No jokes on this one.
Friday, February 5th might have been an ordinary Friday for some, but for us it was the beginning of new tradition. From now on we are organising Monthly Meetups for those who are interested in reputation management, leadership and communications. No dashboards, no presentations, just people who came together during lunch to share their favorite book, movie, music, meetings with people, who inspire. The first meetup was a big success – the people, the atmosphere, pleasant conversations gave uplifting feeling and inspiration for the upcoming weeks.
Created for the first time in Paris in January 2013 and challenging reputation issues since the beginning, the ReputationWar cycle of conferences from now on will be known as ReputationTime. Following the new trends organizers have developed a new design experience together with the partner-agency OZOLS IR for your visual delight at the conference this year.
