Welcome to the August edition of Communication Directory,

This month's edition of Communication Directory newsletter, brought to you by Communication Director Magazine, invites you to take part in an exciting and important new research project, the Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor. It is the first large-scale survey in Asia Pacific on the current status and the future of strategic communication in the region, and wants to hear from professionals from in-house and agency backgrounds. The purpose of Communication Director Magazine is to collect insights and opinions of communicators working across this diverse and developing region, and that's exactly what this survey aims to do from a scientific perspective. Don't miss this unique opportunity to share your insights with a major pan-Asia Pacific exploration into the realities of strategic communications across the region: details can be found in the article.

Elsewhere, we present the usual mix of personnel changes, events and vacancies from the field of Asia-Pacific corporate communications, as well as news of survey findings that provide compelling evidence that employer brand is a potent recruitment tool - more details inside.

We wish a happy and productive August to all our readers.
