Welcome to the September edition of Communication Directory!

As a communicator, how well do you understand the issues at the top of your CEO’s priority list? This month’s edition of Communication Directory newsletter presents an essential resource for understanding the mindsets of leading CEOs. Brought to you by Communication Director Magazine, our lead article covers the major findings of PwC’s 18th Annual Global CEO Survey. It shows that while there is mixed confidence when it comes to global growth, company heads are optimistic about the prospects of their own organisations. What’s more, concern and confidence differ in volume and subject across region and industry. Importantly these findings allow communicators to link their own strategies with the outlook of CEOs in their region and industry.

Outside of this we present the usual mix of personnel changes, events and job opportunities, plus we dive into a study of digital marketing across the world, which shows those in Asia are more demanding of brands and their digital content.

As always, we wish you a productive month of September.
