117: Damage Control: How to Recover from a Tainted Reputation with Warren Weeks
There does come a point when someone’s behavior puts them in a place of no return when it comes to the acceptance of the public. But where is that line? And who draws it? Was it wrong to attend President Donald Trump’s speech on the National Mall, in Washington, D.C. on January 6th? Did a person cross the line if they climbed the steps and crossed the threshold of the U.S. Capitol?
One of my favorite media trainers joined me on the podcast to discuss damage control in January 2021.
Warren Weeks, the principal of full-service corporate communications firm Eleven Strategic Communications, Inc., sat down to chat with me about some of the names facing public backlash this month. From actor Armie Hammer to Jenna Ryan, the “riot realtor” from Texas who livestreamed her way into infamy from the U.S. Capitol, we give our two cents about people who are paying big time for their recent behavior.
