Hi -

I work at a relatively small software company where my duties include
writing the documentation, looking after the support section of the
web site, and also doing some training / consultancy type work with
customers and answering support type queries.

It's recently been suggested that I move from the 'product
development' side of the company to the 'sales and marketing' side.
Given that I see my role as having a foot in either camp (I talk to
everyone!) I don't have a problem with that.

My new boss however is wanting me to have a suitable job title that
succinctly captures what I do, and we're struggling to think of one.

I thought of simply having "Documentation and Training" or something
but that's not ideal. "Technical Consultant" doesn't really address
the documentation and web content development side of things, but
would be ideal when I speak with customers (also there's another guy
who will do that role 100% of the time so I should probably be called
something different.

Obviously I could just put different things on my business cards or
email sig depending who I am talking to and why, but if anyone has a
good idea for one phrase that captures everything nicely that would be

We're not a dotcom, and it's not 1999 any more, so "Technology
Evangalist" or anything flakey like that doesn't have great appeal.

By the way we're based in the UK but have customers all over Europe,
Japan and the US. Oh and Canada, mustn't forget aboot them. Our
customers are other software companies (we sell an SDK).

Any help much appreciated!
