We’re often asked this question: “We’re not ready for a book but we want to make sure we capture our story. What should we do?”
An oral history (a planned interview program with a range of board members, senior executives, selected employees and sometimes key clients) is an ideal way to capture the history of a company. In fact, we believe the real history of any company resides in the memories and experiences of the people who have worked in it.
Your oral history program can be as small or as extensive as you like, and you can control the timeframe you want it cover.
So, initiate an oral history program today and capture your past before it is lost!
Then, when you’re ready for your own book, you will have a great base from which to start.
