Digital Summit Hotlanta!

Hotlanta lived up to its name, as the weather and attendees at Digital Summit Atlanta were on fire. A great crowd of around 1500 people attended the event and I had the pleasure of keeping them entertained and educated before they wrapped up the final day–and hit the cocktail reception.

No easy task!

That said, we had fun exploring some fresh Reputation Roadkill examples and learning from their mistakes. Lots of great questions afterwards and many new friends made!

Thanks to the everyone who tweeted and instagrammed.

“When a reputation is damaged, it happens quickly,” Beal said. “The time to take action is before — to strengthen the reputation of the region and the products. All signs are that they are doing what they can, but if the bad things keep happening, there will be a tipping point. And once that happens, it becomes much more difficult to confront.”
