How Do We Develop Your Corporate History Storytelling?
At the heart of developing stories is a well crafted process that simply and compellingly relates your business past, present and future to your customers, prospects, investors, media and employees in a way that engages them.
Storytelling used to be only through word of mouth and books, but things have changed. Now sharing one’s story is about creating content that engages specific audiences across multiple media platforms and ensuring that the story flows, is linked together and engages each audience.
Let us start helping you capture and share your story.
Our Process of Capturing and Sharing Your Story In A Compelling Manner
What most companies dont realise is the ‘real story’ resides in the memories and insights provided by their founder, leadership team and key employees. After all, it’s people who create and build companies and create company culture and values.
If you want your company history to be a powerful tool for building your future and showcase your success, when we meet we will show you examples of books we have written and published, discuss your purpose, timeframe and key audiences, and explain the process in more detail. Post this meeting we will provide you with a book project proposal.

The 6 Main Types of Company History Storytelling
Listed and Private Company Histories
Working out what is best for your business and what you want to achieve with your commemorative book is the first step. You book content can also be repurposed for your annual reports, included in press releases, on your website and as part of new employees induction and community engagement.

Family Business Histories
When researching and writing a family business history we get to meet and know many of the family members, whether they are in the business or not. Engaging the family is an important part of a good family business history, even if they are not active in the business.
A high level of trust is involved in writing a family business history. We are honoured to be entrusted by families with their story. The responsibility to craft a good story is made all that more important as a result.
We have developed a short checklist of the key questions a family business should consider when thinking about undertaking a history.
Often founders are asked by their colleagues, peers, industry connections and friends to write a book. It’s a challenge for many as they don’t have the time, might be reluctant to put themselves in the spotlight through a book, don’t know how to write it or simply don’t feel their story warrants a book.
Founder Business Biographies
If you don’t tell your story, someone else will.
Often, successful businesspeople are asked by their colleagues, peers, industry connections and friend to write a book. It’s a challenge for many successful businesspeople as they don’t have the time, might be reluctant to put themselves in the spotlight through a book, don’t know how to write it or simply don’t feel their story warrants a book.
At The Book Adviser we’ve worked with a number of successful businesspeople on their book journey. It’s much easier to create and write your book if you’re in conversation with an experienced book coach who knows how to do it, can provide guidance and input, has proven tools, processes and templates and, in some cases, research and write it for you.
If you’re a successful businessperson, company director or entrepreneur and have been thinking about writing a business book, talk to us in complete confidence by calling me on +61 400 800 056 or email [email protected]
Business and Leadership Books
You have an important role, even responsibility, to share your knowledge and insights and make a positive impact on the present and future.
So, how do you share this other than one-to-one mentoring and the close-knit network of 'the network'?
The best way to capture and share what you've learned is to write your business book. It's a worthwhile journey and a tangible way to share your knowledge, experience and insights. We have worked with over 100 CEOs and directors of companies listed on the ASX, private companies, family businesses and consultants.
Contact us and we’ll show you how to write, self publish and market your book.
Corporate timelines can now also integrate existing and new video footage, augmented reality elements, images, audio and engaging graphics. Your timeline can be published on your website, used in marketing, events, community engagement, employee onboarding, brand stories and more.
