History enriches our present and reveals wisdom for our future. This is as true for large corporations, well-known institutions and family-businesses, as it is for governments, countries and individuals. No matter the celebration or turning-point — a significant anniversary, a milestone merger, a major relocation — yours' is a story that deserves to be told. Useful for investor relations, community outreach, and human resources programs as well as marketing and fundraising campaigns, a corporate history is a highly effective and entertaining way to reach your most important constituents.
Preserving your organization's evolving traditions, leadership challenges and initiatives can take several visually-rich forms: a soft-cover brochure, coffee-table book, or multi-media DVD. It also involves a combination of approaches. Whether a comprehensive chronicle, executive biography, or product profile, I conduct in-depth personal interviews to accurately capture the voices and thoughts of the people who have contributed to your ongoing success. I also survey in-house archives to retrieve long-buried facts and scour libraries, private archives and special collections to unearth forgotten photographs and illustrations. From concept to editorial to design, we work collaboratively to tailor and publish a lasting legacy that meets your specific communication needs, budget and schedule.
“Laurie Levin is an outstanding writer, as well as a literary alchemist who can take hundreds of pages of mind-numbing facts and hours of interviews, and turn them into a fascinating, immensely readable corporate history. She is also able to skirt corporate politics by making every participant feel their contribution had been recognized. My respect for her seemingly boundless talent increases with every project we work on together.”
