I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare sells its core product, medical humidifiers to doctors and hospitals by completely relying on sales representatives and distributors to educate customers and sell products. FPH now wants to also find other ways to educate and sell to the customers. This report proposes a 360 degree marketing campaign to reach FPH customers from various angles.

• By creating and executing a better brand strategy
• Achieving a customer focus
