Philip Odiakose becomes lead consultant at P+ Measurement Services

Public Relations measurement expert, Philip Odiakose, has been appointed as lead consultant of P+ Measurement Services, Nigeria’s first indigenous media measurement agency which was officially unveiled at the weekend.

Speaking at the event, Odiakose said the agency has long adopted the recently reviewed Barcelona 2.0 principles of measurement in its practice.
He said the company, which has been running for a few years, now offers a range of services which include: Media Monitoring, Media Measurement, Competitive Analysis, Performance Trend Measurement and Issues & Reputation Measurement.

“In Nigeria today, we boast of an enviable media intelligence that allows us equip clients with the insights that will help them make more informed and better business communication decisions and also help in implementing the new public relations measurement standards.

“PR agencies should not mark their own work. They cannot be the accused, the judge and the jury hence the need to engage a PR measurement service for your brand audit, media performance audit and brand health check. It is high time we move from clip counting (output) to measuring the outcome of communications”, he said.

Speaking about his new job, Odiakose said. “I am really excited to have joined P+. I believe it is important for clients and brands to understand that it is unhealthy for PR agencies to measure the story they put out in the media for brands and services. It is important to help organisations implement the new Public Relations measurement standards”, he said.

“Our mission is to help organisations implement the new Public Relations measurement standards and social media measurement while we work to become the number one media measurement and evaluation service provider in Africa”, he said.

Prior to joining P+ Measurement services, Odiakose worked as Associate Media Analyst and Media Measurement Consultant at Mediacraft Associates Limited.
