I have a large company that is interested in using my photograph for a new product.   The photograph would be used as a key visual at trade shows, the product box, their website and print advertising, print catalogue and social media.   Does anyone have any idea where to start.

Ask a few questions first.

1. What is the estimated number of images (in the printed form) that will be made within the first 12 months.

2. What is the estimated distribution (in units) of this product.

3. Where will this product be sold, geographically.

4. What is the retail price of this product.

5. What is the target market for this product.

The more information you have the easier it is to come up with a starting point.

Check how much a similar rights-managed image would go for at a major stock website (Getty, Alamy) under that usage. You can price lower or higher depending on how unique your image is.

Check out these two articles on my site. They have pricing info and links to pricing calculators for the type of things your client wants.

Also remember that if they want exclusive rights to the image (so no other company can use it) either for a period of time or indefinitely, you should charge a lot more!
