About Us

Why we started this podcast

In many companies, the impact of communication is rarely investigated. Too complex, too expensive, too vague ― there are a lot of concerns that communications managers voice against measuring communication. And so evaluation still seems to be the stepchild in corporate communications. However, we are convinced that it is not only possible to assess the success of internal and external communications, it is also extremely useful and worthwhile. This is because a systematic evaluation of communications benefits your company or organisation ― and ultimately you as the responsible manager.

In “Measurement Mashup” we talk to experts about different methods of evaluating corporate communications, we want to shed light on best practices from international companies, and we will share useful hints and tricks. We publish a new podcast series every month. Our aim is to convince you over to the exciting topic of communications measurement and perhaps even to inspire you. If we manage to do this ― to provide you with new insights and to entertain a little ― then “Measurement Mashup” has fulfilled its purpose. Please share your thoughts in the comments, we look forward to your feedback!
