The last 10 years have been an era of unprecedented change. The media and PR landscape have changed significantly and so, too, must our measurement and evaluation techniques. In this session, Richard Bagnall will discuss why we need to rethink our approach to evaluation and the metrics we should be counting if PR professionals are to remain relevant in today’s era of accountability, including moving away from AVEs (Advertising Value Equivalents). He’ll also be discussing how we can measure our work and prove the effectiveness of our contribution in a manner that is meaningful, credible and relevant to modern communications and PR programs and how we can adapt measurement frameworks to suit our audiences’ moods and situations, including times of crisis.
