Ketchum found this out the hard way during the recent Taiwan earthquake,

which devastated its Ketchum Newscan office as well as the abodes of the

office’s employees.



’The island-wide blackouts left us without electricity for nearly 48

newsletter. ’Our office building had large fissures in its walls, making

the door impossible to close and lock.’



Peng’s fellow Ketchumites around the globe came to the rescue,

collecting more than dollars 11,000 in assistance for the

earthquake-devastated staffers.
