Thanks for your comment: it used to amaze me too, but unfortunately it no longer does. The key to protecting reputation lies in the planning phase - hiring a group of professionals now may help, but it would have been better to have hired them before the incident!
I take your point re airlines, but my view is that you have to expect that one day it will happen to you whether it's this week, next year or in fifty year's time.
If more businesses adopted this attitude rather than the opposite mentality (it will never happen to us) many more businesses, reputations and jobs would be protected.
I totally agree: truly authentic communicators will build the strongest reputations in this new transparent era
