The Interview

Understand the process

The interview is a chance for the Speaker to discuss the things which matter most to them. The Archive has over three hundred questions to choose from in addition to any elected questions of your choice. The process can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the Speaker's preference. The recording is then edited, reviewed, and uploaded to The Archive. A physical and digital copy is then made for the Speaker to have.
