Whittaker offers reputations tips

Former Kingfisher director turned public relations specialist, Nigel Whittaker, has set up a consultancy specialising in reputation management.

Whittaker, who is a Retail Week columnist, made his name working on behalf of retail bosses such as Sir Geoff Mulcahy.

Well-known clients have included Millennium Dome boss PY Gerbeau.

Now he has launched ReputationInc, convinced that managing 'reputational risk' will be an increasingly important issue for businesses.
