Great opportunity, Nita! How about a view of the product development life cycle with and without your involvement? You can start at the beginning, or better yet, start at the end and work it upstream, showing how involving you earlier is a benefit to them. A good marketing tactic is to be sure you focus on how you contribute to the success of the product and therefore their success, and how you ease their pains. Also show what relationships you build (with marketing, sales, development, QA, customer support, etc.) so they can see how you get the big picture as well as the details.
