Ornico recently hosted a communication measurement webinar featuring the Barcelona Principles 3.0, which enable the effective measurement of brand and communication and PR efforts. This latest iteration of the Barcelona Principles focus on inclusion, impact and integrity, with AVEs said to not be the value of communication.

Presented by Ornico’s head of operations and AMEC Board member, Francois van Dyk, the webinar shares the latest globally recognised communication measurement best practices. The video is now live on YouTube for brands, communication and PR professionals, as well as their agencies to begin their journey towards effective measurement. It includes some free tools and insights on how to integrate measurement principles into your brand communication.
