The Measurement Series of ESA webinars is designed to investigate the main challenges in sponsorship measurement, the different approaches and methodologies that can be used and to showcase best practice examples of effective sponsorship measurement.
Join us for three separate sessions as we help ESA members get to grips with sponsorship measurement.
In this session with measurement specialists, we will discuss the different approaches to measurement, how to start an effective measurement programme that integrates with wider business measurement and what business KPIs we should be measuring and how.
Hosted by Sophie Morris, ESA Board Director, these three sessions will provide a topical discussion and debate around one of the most seemingly troublesome areas of sponsorship management.
Joining Sophie on the Specialists’ Panel are:
- Sandra Greer – Head of Insight, MKTG
- Samantha Lamberti – Managing Director, Nielsen Sports Southern Europe
- Daragh Persse – Managing Director, The Brand Fans
- Conrad Wiacek – Head of Sport Analysis and Consulting, Global Data
