The Reputation Doctor® 2-Hour Counseling Session

NEW YORK – MGP & Associates PR launched a new reputation management consulting service today called The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Counseling Session for the low, introductory price of only $950. The one-on-one counseling session with crisis and reputation management veteran Mike Paul offers a significant savings over his usual hourly rate of $850 per hour, plus expenses. The low introductory rate offers a total savings of $750.

“This new reputation counseling service is exclusive and only offered by MGP & Associates PR,” said Mike Paul, the Reputation Doctor® and president & senior counselor at MGP & Associates PR. “No other public relations firm in the world offers a reputation management counseling session similar to this, which is like visiting your therapist, but focused solely on improving your reputation.”

The Reputation Doctor® 2-Hour Counseling Session will benefit two types of organizational and individual clients:

1) Those seeking immediate short-term help on a limited budget. Especially in today’s economy, there are many times when organizations or individuals need immediate counseling to find a solution for a challenging reputation problem and are not interested in a long-term contract. The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Counseling Session allows an organization or individual to obtain reputation counseling from the top expert in just two hours. Additional sessions are available upon request.

2) Those seeking to engage a reputation management consultant but prefer to ensure quality of service and compatibility prior to signing a long-term agreement.
Trusting the counsel of your consultant is crucial to the success of a long-term relationship. The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Counseling Session allows clients to “kick the tires” and “test drive” MGP & Associates PR’s reputation management services before signing a long-term agreement, especially for larger, more complicated reputation problems which require more counseling time.

A few examples of reputation challenges that can be addressed during The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Counseling Session include:

For Individuals -

• Fighting for your reputation in a legal battle.
• Overcoming reputation issues associated with a divorce.
• Conquering reputation issues at work.
• Improving your reputation at home and with your family.

For Corporations or Organizations –

• Overcoming a reputation for fraud or wrongdoing.
• Fighting for your reputation in a legal battle.
• Transitioning from a CEO with reputation problems to a new CEO unknown to employees and customers.
• Improving the corporate reputation by stopping hurtful internal rumors and other damaging internal communication problems.

“I disagree with those who say public relations consulting is about placing media stories and spin,” said Mike Paul. Mr. Paul has always believed the public relations profession is more about counseling and truly changing behavior to improve reputations. “Our profession has as many specialties as the professions of law and medicine; crisis and reputation management have their roots in psychology and changing ineffective or destructive habits,” continued Paul.

The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Counseling Session is a powerful tool in reputation management because it provides a concrete and focused prescription for repairing your reputation. Why? Because Your Reputation Is Everything!™ To make a confidential appointment for The Reputation Doctor® Two-Hour Session, please call 212-595-8500 or email

Mike Paul, The Reputation Doctor, Says Congressman Anthony Weiner Must Leave!

Does Congressman Anthony Weiner Need to Leave Congress Due to a Reputation in Crisis? Check out what the Reputation Doctor had to say in this interview with Greg Kelly on Fox 5′s Good Day New York:

The Reputation Doctor: Weiner’s Cover Up:

Chris Brown Gets Into An Explosive Argument At GMA

Mike Paul, the Reputation Doctor, Comments on Chris Brown’s Meltdown and Violence on ABC’s GMA






















Chris Brown’s reputation is still in crisis. His recent meltdown this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America didn’t help things at all. Sadly, he is still filled with hubris, anger and pain himself. This is a prime example why attorneys are not experts in the court of public opinion. They need to stick to the court of law and only communicate to judges and juries. His attorney, Mark Geragos, is running the show and not helping Chris Brown’s reputation at all! Mark is an excellent attorney, but not an expert in crisis PR and reputation management, which Chris Brown needs desperately today. I could really help this kid. WABC-TV’s Sandra Bookman interviewed me for my expert opinion on this story today. ABC-TV News ironically removed their video online after paying for photos rights of Chris Brown for only 24 hours. I personally also think the video was removed because ABC News and GMA executives tried to get Chris Brown back on GMA and decided not having the story on the website attacking him might help in getting him back.

What I said in the interview was it appears his legal counsel, Mark Geragos, is also controlling his reputation management and PR strategy. Not so smart. I also said whoever his PR counsel is today (he has changed PR strategist like he changes his clothes) is not very competent.

* Allowing him to tweet more hurtful speech. Dumb.
* Not making him realize he needed to apologize immediately. Dumber.
* Hoping all the questions about Rihanna will just go away. Just plain stupid.

Chris Brown needs to own the issue of hitting Rihanna. He needs to speak about it often and in every interview to prove he has learned from his mistakes and will never hit a woman again. Obviously after his recent violence in throwing a chair at a window overlooking Times Square at the Good Morning America studio, he still has major anger issues and still has not been properly media trained.

If he were my client, he would have been properly media trained weekly for at least a month or two before his album release to best prepare him for worst-case-scenario media interviews. I would have also used the photos of Rihanna after he beat her to make him realize the media will use those visuals too. He is really naive, filled with hubris and needs to be scared straight again to realize he must deal with the Rihanna beating issue for the rest of his life. The sooner he realizes this and works to change his behavior, the better.

True reputation management involves counseling a client, like Chris Brown, through the fire. This is more about heart work, than head work. This is more about coming to truth and being honest with himself first and using it as a tool to best repair his reputation. This is not traditional public relations or publicity. This is a professional specialization in public relations called crisis public relations and reputation management and the goal is changed behavior through counseling. I can really help this kid through the fire. I hope he listens to my advice and perhaps even picks up the phone.

Blessings and Peace,

Mike Paul
