Slide 2: Why care about positioning: Consistent story, differentiated, mental map, aligned GTM motions & product roadmap

Slide 3: Factors to consider:
1. Must align with the company goal of ____.
2. Can the Manager/Director of Support easily explain Zingtree to the VP/SVP of Support?

Slide 4: What I’ve heard in my 1.5 months so far: (show options of what different people say and the sentiment you think each has)

Slide 5: New one-line positioning: Elevate contact center agent productivity through conversational workflow software

Slide 6: Breaking our one-liner down: (explain the meaning behind each word)
