Hi Folks,

Just a few points from a non-native English speaker...

Agreed

That's exactly the point I am trying to make. I was asked for input on
the idea of Community Marketing Contacts being enough for global input.

Well, how many fluent languages are represented within the current
selected group? What's the possible global coverage by these people?

Whoever the spokespeople are, how do you intend to overcome the language
barriers to keep them well informed?

You probably can. But, do you intend to spread the message only in
English? 

Who would you trust to adapt the message into different languages, and
make sure it is in sync with RH?

Thanks for listening!
