Are you “Genetically Unemployable?” If you have trouble being an employee, you probably are a born entrepreneur like our first guest, Katie Delahaye Paine, aka The Measurement Queen.
Katie has been a pioneer in the field of measurement for three decades. She has founded two measurement companies, KDPaine & Partners Inc., and The Delahaye Group. In her words, this entrepreneur, CEO, and consultant talks about being “genetically unemployable.” Her motto, “You’re never wrong, just early,” is a reflection of her pioneering spirit, be it into new markets in the outset of Silicon Valley, new ideas, or starting new companies. She talks about idealisim, being involved in politics in New Hampshire, and making a difference.

Katie’s books, Measure What Matters (Wiley, March 2011) and Measuring Public Relationships (KDPaine & Partners, 2007) are considered must-reads for anyone tasked with measuring public relations and social media. Her latest book, written with Beth Kanter, Measuring the Networked Nonprofit: Using Data to Change the World, is the 2013 winner of the Terry McAdam Book Award.
Her latest company, Paine Publishing is the first educational publishing firm entirely dedicated to making more Measurement Mavens. Its newsletter, The Measurement Advisor, is the industry’s most comprehensive source of information about best practices in communications measurement. In her consulting practices, she designs measurement dashboards for some of today’s most admired companies. Katie has also been a leading promoter of standards in the PR and social media measurement field, most recently as the initial organizer of The Conclave that released social media measurement standards.
