"Think of it as a '6O Minutes' interview for home use"

---Ocean House Collection, October 2020

This is an 11-minute capsule version of a four-part, two-hour-plus biographical conversation I did for former Stouffer and Nestle USA CEO Alan MacDonald.


You've built a legacy. You've lived and led with intelligence and character. Now share your story.


Celebrate your achievements and inspire others to learn from your experience. But the story needs to be told carefully and properly, in an interesting, active way that will draw in the people you want to be drawn in...and encourage repeated viewings over the years.

That means telling your story in a well-researched conversation, with a pro --an award-winning business news journalist-- 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 Entrepreneurism and Corporate America.  I'll help you tell yours.  Click on the video above (or some of the longer ones below), and you'll see some of what I can do for you.

September 15, 2020 -- Ray Hoffman talks with Home Depot co-founder, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank:


Here's how we'll make it work for you:

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.

With a videographer using high-definition equipment, I'll come to your home, office, or wherever you'd like. And yes, I'll be on set with you...safely social distanced with a strict safety protocol. Not only is there more life to the video that way, but a free-flowing conversation will allow you to better share the stories of your life.

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...your choice. 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.

Lessons, Leadership, Legacy.
