Measurement Week
w/c 15th September, 2014
An AMEC Global Education Programme
What is
Measurement Week
– and how can I be
to involved!
The strategic direction
What is it?
• Key strategic initiative from
AMEC to fill the gap between
understanding the value of PR
measurement but doing
something about it!
• Measurement Week will help
fill that gap through an
International week of AMEC
member-led events unified via
social media to raise
awareness and excitement
around the latest thinking in
• AMEC’s three International
Chapters will co-ordinate
Measurement Week activities.
How to take part and the benefits
• Every AMEC member, whatever its size, can get
involved by organising an event in their own country.
• Measurement Week benefits everyone
- You because it identifies your company with
- Your clients – who see they are working with a
company who believes in best practice.
- AMEC/the industry – because it raises awareness of
the importance of measurement.
An idea from iSentia in Australia
• AMEC Member iSentia
running breakfast
seminar with two
established measurement
and evaluation experts.

• Run a combined panel event with agency, measurement vendor,

• Use Measurement Week as an employee communications initiative
within your offices – especially if you are part of an international
• Bring in social media vendors for an event – e.g.. Twitter, radian 6.
Launch ideas
• Strategy is to target the groups who are most vested in the
concept rather than promote too heavily among the wider
marketing community.
• Year 1 objective is to build a solid but perhaps not spectacular
foundation for future success and keep the concept slightly
below the line until momentum has been generated
• Creative save the date mailer – on and offline, perhaps using
the #amecatwork concept
• Encourage AMEC members to spread the word through WoM
and through their channels using #amecatwork.
• AMEC to provide content for publication as stand-alone or as
part of broader measurement material to AMEC members at
launch and during the week (& published to the Measurement
Week holding page
