Tell your story in your own words and on your own terms.
A companys story mostly resides in the memories of the
people who are in your company right now. Their recollections
are invaluable parts of your organisations net worth especially
if you have long-term management or employees. The sooner
you capture their memories, the better equipped you will be
to move forward profitably.
An oral history project involves interviewing your key
management, staff and perhaps some clients to capture and
preserve the different strands of your organisations history.
This is an inexpensive exercise and it can be started tomorrow.
Recollections from your leaders, employees and customers can
provide invaluable insights into the way your organisation:
communicates its vision for the future
develops its workplace culture
values and shares the benefits of its achievements
presents itself to external and internal audiences.
Custom books and oral histories

They allow you to deliver several key messages at once to specific
target audiences. This enables you to use your story to:

The power of telling your story
The quality and substance of an oral history or corporate
history makes a powerful statement that delivers impact and
increased awareness to both existing and potential clients.
Working closely with you, Focus can help build a specific
marketing and distribution program around your book that
will deliver access and high exposure to your target audiences.
