Particular area of research interest is corporate identity and reputation. Other areas of research interest include integrated marketing communications in a business to business context, and country of origin branding.
Emergent trends occurring in the business environment over the last four decades have focused the attention of management academics and practitioners on the concept of corporate reputation. A companys overarching reputation can provide it with a salient point of differentiation, which if strategically managed, can constitute a valuable resource and provide a source of competitive advantage. Research into this concept has primarily concentrated on corporate reputation in the context of traditional on-going organisational forms. Little attention has been paid to how the concept relates to alternative organisational entities, such as those that emerge to manage and execute episodic events. The increase in the number of episodic events and the scarcity of research into the application of corporate reputation literature to such entities, therefore presents the opportunity to consider how corporate reputation is developed and managed in the context of episodic event organisations.
Reputation, events, episodic organisational forms.
