BP’s Oil spill has put it in the spot light, mostly with negative publicity. BP has attempted to fight back with improved communications on the $20 Billion fund, a new leader and Gulf Coast Restoration organization, clean ups and preparations for hurricanes. It has prepared 4 videos on these subjects but then make them hard to find except on the BP site. Small changes in the company website to improve search engine optimization would help BP’s reputation management cause.

Tony Hayward, CEO of BP appeared before a US Congressional Committee to address the recent Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Despite using the tried and true customer satisfaction remediation technique of Acknowledge the problem, Apologize and Demonstrate actions, the best practice failed. Why? Attitude and lack of emotion. Contrast to a recent speech by Obama on his actions relative to BP also included in this post.
