Welcome to the June issue of Communication Directory newsletter

Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. But the fast evolving business landscape, which provokes profound changes in the way communicators work, is also an opportunity for the communications discipline to reinvent, innovate and add far greater value to the organisation. That’s the argument of Shravani Dang, vice president and group head of corporate communications at Avantha Group, whose article in the upcoming issue of Communication Director magazine we present in this month’s newsletter.

Also in this newsletter, along with the regular updates about events, personnel changes and jobs, we take a look at recent, illuminating research into authentic corporate purpose - a quality difficult to pin down, perhaps, but always obvious when it's there or not. How can communication strategies define and disseminate a corporation’s fundamental objectives? The survey sheds some interesting light on this tricky question.
