Oral Histories

Your Story in Your Words

Documents tell only part of any history. The voices of experience are also important, and can help fill a book or exhibit with emotion and detail. At Vantage Point, we work with organizations to capture the insights and recollections of people who have played a key role in shaping an organization’s history.
Before each interview, we prepare an outline of questions and a relevant chronology for the interviewee. The interview is digitally recorded on high-quality audio or HD video so that it can be used in a variety of ways. The tape and transcript become a permanent asset available to guide and inspire future generations of managers and leaders.
Often, communities and organization wait too long before thinking about preserving the memories of knowledgeable people.
