To capture compelling stories for “Great and Good: Game Changing Leadership for a Better World”, the upcoming business book about ethical leadership, Bob Vanourek and Gregg Vanourek have been interviewing exemplary executives around the world – 50 interviewees from 9 countries, and counting. Scheduled for 2011 publication, the book is the culmination of decades of Bob’s business experience and his deep personal belief in values-based leadership. The Evoca Skype Call Recorder made it possible for the authors to bridge the challenges of distance and time zones to conduct in-depth interviews. Anyone with a Skype account can use Evoca to record Skype interviews and conference calls with a single click to add the Call Recorder.
Now retired from Fortune 500 CEO posts with Recognition Equipment and Sensormatic, Bob is collaborating with like-minded son Gregg Vanourek, author of “Life Entrepreneurs” and founding partner of New Mountain Ventures. The father and son team has been recording interviews with leadership heroes and heroines around the globe, in large and small organizations in all sectors: corporate, nonprofit, government, and the military. Having access to their alumni networks from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, and Claremont College also opened many doors.
Murem Sharpe, Evoca CEO, had the opportunity to interview Bob, her former Pitney Bowes colleague, using Evoca’s voice recording service. Bob thoughtfully endorsed Evoca with “… this is an unsolicited testimonial. Ever since we’ve been using the Evoca system we’ve had no problem. It was absolutely clean. So I highly recommend it.”
During the interview Bob cites examples of the exemplary leadership he and Gregg found within “… for-profit organizations from startups to multi-billion dollar, multi-national corporations, many non-profits, educational institutions such as Yale and Princeton, the University of Denver, military organizations like the Strategic Air Command, government organizations like Greensburg, Kansas, that would be devastated by a tornado a few years ago – totally wiped out and reinvented itself as the greenest town in America.” He mentions notable organizations including the Mayo Clinic, Google (Judy Gilbert), Cisco (Lynn Easterling), Xerox (Ursula Burns), Zappos, the Perkins School for the Blind, and CH2M Hill – the Rocky Flats contractor for toxic plutonium clean up.
Bob lives outside Vail, Colorado and Gregg lives and works north of Stockholm, Sweden; the publishing team is located in multiple cities. Their interviewees were located all around the United States and the rest of the world. Using the Evoca Skype Call Recorder they were able to easily and reliably capture valuable interviews and analyze content from their virtual research locations.
