Executive tools to demonstrate the value of public service media

The Value of Public Service Media

As we enter the era of the "purpose economy", demonstrating the value of public service media has never come at a more important time. To help our Members face their upcoming advocacy challenges, our strategic initiative now offers:

  • Interviews with EBU Member directors general who have already put value and impact measurement at the core of their strategies
  • An executive guide on how to effectively prepare and launch your organization’s value journey
  • Casebooks showcasing how our Members use data, communications campaigns, events, impact research and content to demonstrate the value they deliver
  • Help from our Strategy and Media Intelligence Service teams in designing and launching your value project

 

Directors General Interviews

Draw inspiration from Directors General from EBU Members on how to develop a value-focused organization. Hear what it took to put purpose at the core of their organization, how value works in practice and why their personal involvement mattered.

EBU Members can login to watch the videos.

Discover how  to step by step turn your broadcaster into a value-focused organization.

In this Executive Guide, we have brought together the learnings from EBU Member directors general across Europe. These leaders have already launched and capitalized on research and advocacy strategies to identify and highlight the impact PSM have.

You will learn how to rethink your organization’s purpose, define its value, develop a long-term strategy, measure your impact and build a meaningful story. You will also find out how,  as director general, you can connect employees, stakeholders and, most importantly, citizens to the value your organization creates for society.

Measuring Your Contribution to Society

Public service media (PSM) are essential to securing a strong national media industry, a healthy democracy and a cohesive society. Even before the COVID-19 crisis, communicating the legitimacy and importance of PSM was vital. Now, it is an urgent need. 

Through our contribution to society (C2S) framework, we help your organization set up a strategy to measure and analyse your impact on society. We also support you in developing a narrative that demonstrates the value you deliver.

What you get

These are the four ways we help you: 

  • Check-in: we give you an overview of the PSM Contribution to Society framework and help introduce the C2S mindset to your organization.
  • Take off: we help you identify the issues that matter most to your stakeholders and understand the role your organization should play in addressing them. 
  • Boost: we support you in taking your ongoing projects to the next level; develop a compelling and meaningful narrative about the benefits your organization brings to society; and align the C2S mindset to your corporate strategy.
  • Executive lounge: this workshop is especially designed for leadership/executive boards and will equipe you with the necessary tools to build a strategic and purpose-led vision that will accelerate your organization's transformation.
