His summary on his LinkedIn business profile states;
- I fix problems. Attacks on reputation can come from any quarter: the unhappy customer or employee, the law suit, the politician hungry for votes, NGOs needing funding, unknown critics online but usually involve an escalation through the media. Sometimes they are unfounded. Sometimes they are based on a shortcoming within a company or of an individual. My role is to resolve the challenge quickly without lasting damage.
