Welcome to the April edition of Communication Directory newsletter!,

Who were you today? The collaborator, bridging gaps between clients and the communications team? The marketer, driving PR campaigns to deliver maximum impact? Or the producer, operating behind the scenes? Probably all three! As communications change to adapt to new technologies and the social media surge, adopting multiple personalities is one way of keeping up. In April’s Communication Directory newsletter we talk about your communications career and how this multi-persona evolution can help ensure success in the field.

Among our regular personnel updates, events and job postings, we also highlight international research revealing which country places the highest value on CEO reputation – the answer may surprise you. We also look further into the study to find the best attribute a CEO can have to create a more credible reputation and consequently become a more highly valued CEO.

As ever, we look forward to your feedback either via email or at @codimagAP.
