13:35-14:05 Hands up and discuss
Initial questions to explore include: Which participants have 'marketing' explicitly defined as part of their job title / job description? What activities do they undertake? Of the people who don't have this explicit description, do they undertake those same activities (are they 'doing marketing' by another name)? How and to what extent are marketing and communications integrated within different NRENs and in which strategic-level activites are they involved?
