Reputation Symposium

Reputation Symposium

We have been hosting our three-day annual Reputation Symposium since 2009, and it has become a leading forum for the inter-disciplinary exploration of the subject. Unfortunately, our Reputation Symposium 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In its place we hosted two webinars under the heading, 'Responsibility, recovery and reputations: geopolitics and global business', with two panels comprising leading figures from the UK government, international business and NGOs. The complete videos of those webinars are available through these links:

Activist Congress

Our first Activist Congress in August 2018 brought together activists, senior investment professionals and academics to explore the increasing importance of activism of all kinds to corporations, NGOs, countries and citizens, and to aid understanding of this dynamic phenomenon.

Media and markets conference

Media and Markets conference

How reputations are won and lost in modern information markets was a conference co-hosted by our centre and the University of San Diego School of Law.

The conference explored three components of the new information age: technology, stakeholder proliferation and polarisation. It was attended by leading figures from academe, business, the media and publishing.

Discussions were captured in a white paper that includes transcripts of the presentations. Watch selected presentations
