Philippe Borremans and Jennifer Wah join host Shel Holtz for a conversation on these topics:
- The Association for the Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC) is launching a campaign to eradicate Advertising Value Equivalencies (AVEs) from PR measurement once and for all. The UK’s Chartered Institute for Public Relations (CIPR) is joining in, giving members a year to transition or face the consequences.
- Philippe summarizes the recent African PR Summit held in Casablanca earlier this month.
- A study finds statistically that people respond to online marketing based on consumer stories.
- Can professional associations play a role in guiding the ethical behavior of their members, particularly when the definition of what is ethical crosses national borders?
- Fake news appeared in abundance following the Manchester terrorist attack, but none of it seemed to have a political agenda. When businesses are dragged into these stories, how should they respond?
- Dan York reports on the new ability to add video to a Medium “Series” and Eli Pariser’s perspective on fake news.
