Results from a recent global survey on trust and credibility will be the focus of an ethics presentation at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Feb. 22.
The 2017 Edelman Trust Barometer reveals that the public’s trust in institutions — including government, business and media — has hit record lows in many countries. Kevin Cook, chief operating officer at Edelman’s Chicago office, will detail insights and implications from the study and discuss strategies businesses can use to build trust with stakeholders.
Part of the UNO James R. Schumacher Ethics Speaker Series, the event takes place Wednesday, Feb. 22, at Mammel Hall. A reception with refreshments begins at 5 p.m. The presentation follows from 5:30–7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking is open in Lot 5 near Mammel Hall. Registration is requested; RSVP here.
A 20-year veteran of global marketing firm Edelman, Kevin Cook serves as senior counsel for some of the firm’s largest global clients, including manufacturing, financial services and healthcare companies. He also counsels clients on global reputation and stakeholder campaigns, issues management, strategic transactions and corporate brand transformation.
