Welcome to the April edition of Communicaion Directory Newsletter!,

Unsurprisingly, given the dynamism of the communications field in Asia Pacific, an important element of the first Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor looks at the future development of the profession: the predictions of respondents is a vital picture of not only where the profession stands now but how it sees itself growing in the next few years. Based on responses from 1,200 communication professionals in 23 countries across East, South and Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia, the Monitor paints a fascinating picture of the evolution of our shared understanding of the communications profession. It charts attitudes towards earned, owned and paid media, social media skills, drivers of job satisfaction, and characteristics of excellent communication departments in Asia Pacific.

Meanwhile, communicators need to be aware of the potential perils that could hinder the performance of their organisations: this month’s Facts & Figures section looks at the most influential business risks at play in the deeply interconnected environment we work in.
