Business Histories and Tributes
A business history preserves and communicates the one thing that is most unique about a company: its story. By recording the dreams, motivations, and goals of company founders and others, our programs help build an organizational legacy. The result is an interwoven history of ideas and experiences, supporting a strong company culture. Our documentaries are tailor-made for screening inside and outside your organization, ideal for milestone events, corporate communications, and family owned businesses. The story of a life’s work is one that deserves to be told.
Documenting a person’s life journey can be a powerful and priceless experience. To reflect and reminisce on one’s own life path often has a cathartic, even healing effect. Research suggests that a life review can also contribute to the health of storytellers, enhancing their self-esteem and sense of well-being. The emotional resonance of oral history engages listeners. It is a tool that helps generations talk to one another, bringing families together. And it’s a lasting gift, perfect for landmark occasions, growing more valuable with the passage of time.
Everyone is a good subject
Perhaps one person in ten thousand will actually write an autobiography, but anyone can “talk one” in his or her own words, particularly if encouraged by a skilled listener. Many people don’t think they have much to say. But we all construct a life story in our minds that helps us to make sense of the past. When you speak candidly about what is most interesting and important to you, the result is interesting, often fascinating, to others, especially those closest to your story.
