Strategic Marketing Plan Pages:



Beginning with 2010, the OpenOffice.org Marketing Project will host regular phone conference calls. They are meant as a chance to discuss important topics live on the phone and have to be understood as enhancement of our main marketing mailing list. A subscription to this list is not mandatory, but recommended to be informed about ongoing projects that will be discussed during the call.

Audio of the conference might be recorded and made available afterwards, either in written or recorded form. If you are not comfortable with that, please contact the call moderator in advance.

We would like to thank...

...our sponsor talkyoo for hosting the OpenOffice.org Marketing Conference Calls free of charge. Thanks, folks, for this great support of the marketing project!


Although these calls are for internal discussions, calls are public and everyone can join. Confidential discussions are therefore to be avoided and can be coordinated via private mailing lists if needed.

Some tips

  • at the beginning of the call, introduce yourself with a few sentences (name and role)
  • everytime when speaking, please mention your name, so people who are unfamiliar with your voice know who you are
  • please mute your microphone when you are not talking to reduce noise

Note to journalists and analysts

The calls are intended as internal communication for members of the OpenOffice.org marketing project. You are free to join, but be advised that no official statements will occur during the phone conferences. For interviews, articles and statements, please contact your local marketing representative or the marketing project leads.

The OpenOffice.org Marketing Project plans to have dedicated phone conferences for the press and analysts in the near future.
