It’s the festive season and you’re attending quite a few social events. Unsurprisingly, the conversations have been flowing freely between colleagues and peers following two years of cancellations.
Today you are attending a fairly sizeable industry gathering and you find yourself talking to Beth from another department. There's quite a bit to catch up on, and soon Beth is telling you about a confidential project she worked on with a highly valued client and sharing some fairly embarrassing examples of the client’s behaviour.
While you felt a little uncomfortable with the amount of detail Beth was going in to, what you didn’t know was an associate of that client overheard the conversation.
The client calls you first thing Monday morning and insists Beth be fired for unprofessional behaviour.
What would you do?
