As linguists, we are occasionally called upon to provide professional
advice and consultation to government or community organisations. However,
how our advice is received, implemented or interpreted can be disappointing

discussion on how to, 1) achieve a better success rate in getting
organisations and programs to follow through with their language-related
goals, and 2) develop language-positive practices in the broader community.
