  3. Improve communication of marketing issues

  4. EU office (Catherine)
  5. Ambassador programme

  7. Product positioning
    • Rene: TSC is still in the process of defining 'product lines', based on differences in the products with regards to governance/management and methodology.
      • Marketing will have to liase with TSC regarding the 'end user' view on the HL7 products. There should be a pretty intuitive mapping between the (TSC defined) product lines and the products as defined from a marketing viewpoint.
