You've probably followed, or seen reported, the huge PR and reputation kerfuffle surrounding tour operator Thomas Cook and how they have behaved recently over the deaths of two young kids on holiday in 2007. TC found not legally liable but what's the moral and ethical issue, never mind the powerful human aspect to all this? Summary in this media story.

Latest news today - TC CEO makes public apology in front of live TV.

I have this for discussion in next week's FIR 809. Would love to add listener opinion - care to share your thoughts about it?
Any tragedy involving children evokes strong emotions and the case of Christianne and Robert Shepherd, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning while they were on holiday in Corfu with their father and his partner in 2006, has tugged at the heartstrings of many.

So what’s the key to being a successful foreign executive on Sina Weibo? Besides posting in Chinese, pretty much the same as the key to being popular on any social network – being engaging, and sounding like a real person. Via Quartz.
