Legacies of Legends™ are audio and video programs for business owners, managers, and entrepreneurs. Each program features a candid, one-on-one interview with a recognized and respected leader “who made it happen," capturing truly unique insights and advice. They are stories of legendary leaders and the businesses they built. Each "legacy" is creatively edited and formatted to deliver valuable lessons that can't be learned any other way. Each provides a sense of history and a focus on the future.
They'll be available world-wide. These “first-person” oral biographies and histories are converted to digital audio and video files that can be accessed through a number of convenient communication devices including, PCs and laptop computers, home and auto CD players and portable audio and video devices like iPods and MP3 players. Programs are distributed world-wide through the popular www.BrainFoodToGo.com® web site.
There's nothing like it. Recorded Legacies of Legends capture the personality, charisma, insights, intellect and eccentricities, of the subject that empowered him or her to achieve and accomplish. These "stories" feature a form of personalization that written reports and memoirs cannot offer. They provide a truly “living testament” of the motives, drives, goals, fears, foibles and failures of some of the most important “movers and shakers” in today’s economic world.
Books, too! Transcriptions of selected interviews are also repurposed into e-books and traditional printed books for distribtuion through other channels.

Legends that will live on. These programs are made available world-wide via the internet portal BrainFoodToGo.com They are also distributed to public libraries and libraries at schools of business at colleges and universities. They constitute “living testaments” that will ably serve the interests of future generations of owners and entrepreneurs. Copies are also made available to the interviewee and his or her enterprise for the purpose of select distribution to key constituencies, including, employees, shareholders, customers, investment analysts, etc.
In addition, the content of each interview is subsequently segmented according to sub-topic and cataloged to facilitate use in other media and in other formats. Portions of selected individual interviews will be combined with other materials or similar interviews to produce topic-specific (as contrasted to person-specific) publications. Interviews are conducted by both professional and avocational hosts who guide the conversation to the topics, events, and anecdotes that are most relevant to the subject.
The personal insights offered by Legacies of Legends™ will be invaluable to future generations of entrepreneurs and business leaders, too. Imagine the benefits that would accrue to the intellectual community if recorded person-to-person interviews had been conducted with such entrepreneurial luminaries as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, David Sarnoff, Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Watson and the like. Today’s students, historians, scholars and writers would enjoy an entirely different dimension of understanding and appreciation with which to enhance their work.

Advance information provided by the interviewee assists in formulating the interview. The individual being interviewed has a post-discussion opportunity to give final approval or make suggestions for editing before the finished dialogue is distributed.
