Expert in online reputation management and communications strategy.
On a daily basis, negative information that appears online prevents people from getting jobs, advancing in their careers, and building their businesses. Negative online information causes great personal misery and can even tear apart families. The Internet can serve as judge, jury and executioner for practically any person’s reputation. Regardless of whether you did something foolish, are associated with another’s misdeeds, or are the victim of a third party attack, most people are ill prepared for increasingly common online problems.
John P. David represents people and companies facing online issues, and he chronicles their tales in his presentation:
- People do dumb things: A college student’s night on the town goes off the rails and dozens of news stories online now exacerbate his bad decisions. Finding a job more than two years later remains a challenge.
- Sometimes you are associated with negative news: A CEO’s namesake son gets in trouble, causing reputational damage for a century-old family business.
- And then there are victims: Subjects of hate blogs and victims of online complaint sites staredown negative search results for years. Sometimes, lives are ruined.
David has more than 25 years of experience in public relations, and his articles on online reputation management appear in the Huffington Post, PR Daily and other trade outlets. His book on online reputation management for businesses will be published and available in bookstores nationwide in the Fall of 2016.
