Introducing our Country Leaders

Last month, we announced the creation of our Country Leaders program to help spread the word on Herdict around the world.  Today, we’re pleased to welcome our very first Country Leaders:

Yury Anikeev (Russia)
Renata Avila Pinto (Guatemala)
Faisal Chohan (Pakistan)
Rafik Dammak (Tunisia)
Sonya Dunne (USA)
Bektour Iskender (Kyrgyzstan)
Stefan Kulk (the Netherlands)
Anas Qtiesh (Syria)

This distinguished team has already taken up the reigns with a first Herdict blog post and curating their country specific queues, and hopefully they’ll be sporting their Herdict t-shirts real soon.

We still have space for more country leaders if you’d like to get involved.  Send a brief e-mail to telling us why you’d make a great Country Leader.  Please include links to where you reside on the Web (Twitter, blog, etc).
