- Webinar series
- Drummond said that Charlie Walton originally suggested the idea of a webinar series, starting with a set of industry-focused webinars, e.g., "ToIP and Finance", "ToIP and Healthcare", "ToIP and Education", etc.
- Ajay suggested that we set up an editorial calendar that includes a planned set of webinars and other marketing events.
- Ajay also suggested that we treat it as a "media production" - webinar, podcast, blog post.
- Kimberly liked the idea of having a collection of these webinars and other artifacts.
- Wenjing likes the comparison to a TV series - and that we can target the "shows" as needed for different audiences.
- Drummond very much liked the idea of the editorial calendar becoming the plan for a "season" of the "TV show"
- It was agreed that we should aim to begin the editorial calendar and webinar series in January.
- Ajay Madhokvolunteered to draft a strategic narrative for the ToIP Foundation to circulate before the next meeting and present at the next meeting
