The Measurement for Communicators Academy

May 20-21, 2019 • St. Louis



This is not your typical measurement conference.

You won’t find session after session with talking heads trying to cram the latest measurement techniques into your head. Instead, you’ll participate in an immersive, project-based learning experience that makes you the center of the learning action by building, practicing and mastering the skills for measuring the business success of your communication programs.

Welcome to The Measurement for Communicators Academy.

This one-of-kind learning event has two parts. Attend one or both days:

  • May 20: The Fundamentals: Build a measurement plan from scratch that evaluates the business impact of internal and external communications programs
  • May 21: The Advanced Course: Construct a measurement plan that uses data analytics to assess communication programs

When we say “one-of-a-kind”, we mean it. Each day features:

  • Knowledge Burst, a short talk that frames the skills that will be covered, from how measurement can maintain communicators relevancy to what measurement will look like in 2025.
  • The Application Labs allow you to get your hands dirty in crafting measurement or data analytic plans for assessing communication’s business impact. Think lab coats; that’s how interactive these sessions will be.
  • The Boardroom Pitch Tank will let you ask your academy faculty to increase your communication budget using results from a measurement or data analytics program. It’s our version of “Shark Tank”—giving you a rare learning opportunity to master one of communication’s most crucial skills.
Don't miss this unique opportunity!

Attend two days of information-packed sessions and inspirational keynotes.
