It’s always a treat to have Andrea on the show, this episode especially. As the Olympics were winding down, the Public Relations world was ablaze by the actions of Ryan Lochte. Andrea has been in the Reputation Management business for years, and she had some great insights and advice for the Olympian (and others who get caught with their hands in the cookie jar.) If your brand is about to blow-up (either positively or negatively) you’ll want to chat with the folks at Andrea Obston Marketing Communications. As you can tell, they know their stuff!
