Custom Video Autobiographies
WHEN YOU'RE READY TO TELL YOUR STORY -- FOR YOUR FAMILY, YOUR BUSINESS, YOUR LEGACY-- I'LL HELP YOU TELL IT EVEN BETTER.
You've built a legacy. You've led with intelligence and character. Now share your story. Celebrate your achievements and inspire others to learn from your experience. But your story needs to be told carefully and properly, and in an interesting, active way that will draw in the people you want to be drawn in.
That means telling your story as a conversation, with a pro who will engage you in ways that inspire people to want to learn from your experience -- and your legacy.
I'm Ray Hoffman. I tell the stories of Corporate America. I'll help you tell yours. Click on the video below, and in three minutes I'll show you some of what I can do for you.
Here's a longer, 12 minute, version. It's a capsule of the four-part, two-hour-plus biographical conversation I did for former Stouffer and Nestle CEO Alan MacDonald:
Here's how it works:
We'll create a video presentation that tells your story in a comfortable way that invites multiple viewings. Before the interview, I'll consult with you, do research, and tailor the interview questions to suit your history, personality, accomplishments, and character. You'll be able to review the questions, and add any others that might be helpful in telling your story. I, along with a videographer using high-end equipment, will come to your home, office, or wherever you'd like. And yes, I'll be on camera with you. Not only is there more life to the video that way, but a free-flowing conversation will allow you to better share your stories.
The video will be expertly edited, and you'll be able to review it before it's finalized. We'll deliver a final version to you either online, on DVDs, or on flash drive. Then you'll be able to share your legacy anywhere, and everywhere -- on your company's website, with your family, your school, or social media. And, by the way, the DVDs are delivered in leather-bound gift cases.

About Me, Ray Hoffman
For four decades I’ve specialized in covering business and the financial markets from New York, including 21 years at BusinessWeek. My "CEO Radio" feature --twice recognized by the New York Press Club as best radio business report-- has aired daily since 2007 on WCBS Newsradio 880, I also do the podcast "This Is Capitalism: CEO Stories" for the Arkansas-based financial services firm, Stephens Incorporated. I try to profile corporate leaders and entrepreneurs with knowledge, color, and a sense of affinity.
Here's a sample of my wide-ranging video conversations for CEO Radio:
