    Hi there, having recently joined this group, I would have loved to attend next week's lunch. Unfortunately, I have prior back-to-back engagements in the middle of that day. So will take a raincheck. Here are some ideas and suggestions for topics that I'd like to get insights and exchange on (I'd be happy to also share or contribute to any of these topics):
    1) government relations and policies have growing implications and influence for businesses operating or focused in the Internet world/sector - what role (if any) can strategic communications play in a company's efforts to influence or seek consensus with regards to policy advocacy and government relations, and is there a difference in approach and treatment as compared to more traditional communication disciplines?
    2) many companies are seduced by the potential of high-growth emerging markets and are increasingly looking into capturing market creation and penetration. What differences and cultural lessons can we draw from communication practitioners who've had to "sell" into these markets and things to be aware of when operating in emerging markets?
    3) industry thought leadership is many things to many people but what exactly is it, especially in Europe? What makes a thought leader or a piece of content/information to be considered a thought leadership?Can thought leadership be developed and does it really build credibility? Or, is this seen as another marketing collateral?Can it be measured?
    Will be happy to discuss or elaborate if there's interest.
