MEPRA is hosting a free breakfast seminar on the latest measurement strategies and trends. Exclusive to MEPRA members, the event will be led by the master of measurement himself, Mazen Nahawi. In a world of numerous metrics, frameworks, and infinite data, it can be difficult for PR and communications professionals to implement a simple but effective measurement program. It is important to identify meaningful ways to improve the accuracy of data and generate insights that deliver value and impact.
With over 15 years of experience in the field of PR, communications, and consultancy, Mazen Nahawi, the Founder and CEO of CARMA, a global media intelligence provider which serves over 1,200 clients in 43 countries, will uncover how measurement best practices can be implemented simply and effectively across integrated communications, that combine social and traditional media. A special section will also focus on measuring public affairs and “social media tribes”, who are now becoming the stakeholders PR and communications professionals should focus on.
