GSUSA Board Member Davia Temin Selected a Top Thought Leader in Business


Davia Temin, CEO of Temin and Company and First Vice Chair of the Girl Scouts of the USA Board of Directors, has been selected for Trust Across America’s 2013 list of the Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior.

“Trust is really the world’s shadow currency today – it enables the smooth flow of international commerce, and progress in a multitude of areas,” says Temin, who works with global CEOs, corporations, universities, and NGOs on leadership, marketing and media strategy, and advises major corporations on their women’s leadership councils. “But trust in business, and governmental institutions, is in terribly short supply. It is up to every one of us to understand the reasons why, and do whatever we can to help rebuild trust not only in the business and financial markets, but in our daily interactions. That is what I seek to do, and am so honored by this recognition.”

Trust Across America is a think tank dedicated to studying, defining, and quantifying trustworthy business behavior. Temin writes a column for Forbes.com entitled “Reputation Matters” covering crisis, resilience, reputation, marketing and branding strategy, social media, women’s leadership, and corporate governance. In addition, she tweets (@DaviaTemin) regularly on these issues, and the Temin and Company website features a section devoted to pertinent thought leadership.

She is also a frequent public speaker on subjects ranging from rebuilding trust, crisis and reputation management and resilience to building brands over social media, executive presence, and presentation training. She appears regularly on local, national, and global television and radio.
