In today's business world, a good reputation is essential to be successful. Public affairs and reputation management go hand in hand, enabling companies to exert both political and economic influence.
Reputation management goes beyond traditional PR and image management. A good reputation can open doors, build trust and cultivate relationships, while a poor reputation can have the opposite effect. Public affairs is about achieving political goals and influencing decision makers. Reputation management helps optimize these goals and increase their effectiveness.
