Welcome to the first Asia-Pacific edition of Communication Directory,

Linking communications to strategic business goals is one of the most pressing challenges facing today’s professional communicators; many feel that they are called on to prove the value and impact of their work with each new campaign. In an article written for Communication Director magazine and free to read in this month's Communication Directory newsletter, GE's global head of communications, Gary Sheffer, explores the journey taken by corporate communicators towards making that link clear to all.

Featuring personnel changes, upcoming events, job announcements and surveys, we are looking forward to being a platform for in-house communicators and PR professionals working in this diverse and dynamic region.
