Now, more than ever, the PR, media and marketing industries are being called into question by key stakeholders. The value of each practice has been challenged over time and as we head towards 2020, a new approach is expected. As a result of increasing pressure and marketplace demand, we need to prove the value of our work in new ways.

As other disciplines rename and claim traditional PR domains, it seems that the relevance and importance of PR has great potential to fall behind. Is a renewed focus on measurement and evaluation a way to reclaim our expertise and respect for the profession?
In a special Measurement Month panel webinar, three veterans of very different communication fields come together to discuss the importance of M & E, why practitioners seem to be reluctant to use this powerful tool, how simple it is, and where the profession has potential to go by hitching its wagon to M & E.

The past election to the National Council has shown that anyone who understands social media has already mastered a good part of the election campaign and the political debate. However, this development holds opportunities and dangers: Social media communication is considered credible and authentic, fast and barrier-free, but also paves the way for populism, echo chambers and false reports.
We look at the presence leaders in the social networks of the past election, and how their campaigns have affected the outcome of the election. We also want to know how the various channels are used in the coalition negotiations and what the economy can look to the parties’ communication strategies.

With increasing demand for demonstrating the true value of PR, it is critical for the discipline to be able to measure work effectively and show outcomes to key stakeholders.
But it can be challenging for brands to implement a comprehensive measurement framework and make effective use of the tools that are available. It’s often even more challenging to figure out how best to deliver this information to the C-suite.
In an exciting new partnership with AMEC, the inaugural PRWeek Measurement Conference aims to provide delegates with definitive information and advice from the brands and agencies who are leading the way.
Through expert talks, case study presentations and practical workshops, delegates will learn what effective small- and large-scale PR measurement looks like, discover innovative ideas and tools, and gain vital new perspectives.

Event produced by: ENGINE Mischief & AMEC
While the professional discipline of planning is over 50 years old in advertising, it is still relatively new in PR.
Strategic campaign planning should be a critical, inseparable part of measurement and evaluation.
But too often, it‘s a missing component, limiting the ability for PR and Communications to demonstrate impact.
The new AMEC Campaign Planning Guide, produced by ENGINE Mischief with AMEC, will demonstrate how we can move from “writing a plan”, to Planning being the voice of the audience (and their influences), the guardian of effectiveness, and seller of ideas.
It will explore how Planning can help overcome some of the common challenges both agencies and in-house communications professionals face, including:
