Last month, the New Zealand Herald recognised Deborah Pead, from Pead PR, as one of Auckland’s most influential women, yet “she wields this influence so nicely that it is almost unnoticeable". And while PR folk are usually providing stage directions from the wings, they take centre stage every year during the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand (PRINZ) Awards.

How to measure PR is an ongoing debate and this question was at the centre of a big review by the CAANZ Marcomms Leadership Group last year. And while advertising value equivalent (AVE) has been rejected in many other markets as outdated and insufficient, a survey conducted for Hotwire, the global integrated PR and communications agency, has shown that it's still prevalent in Australia and New Zealand. So it's doing its bit to address the issue with the launch of its own meausurement framework.
