Bryan Bates’ LifeBook Reveal

Filling in the past – life of Bryan

On 19th December 2018, the LifeBook team was incredibly excited as Mr. Bryan Bates was visiting to collect the copies of his completed memoir.

A Cause for celebration

Every time a LifeBook author visits us is a cause for celebration, but Bryan’s visit was particularly special as, upon collection of his newly created memoir, he would become our fastest-ever author to print (having only invested in the private autobiography 21 weeks prior to his visit!).

The four people featured in the video are the author, his daughter, Roy Moëd (LifeBook founder) and Tom Harnett (Bryan’s LifeBook project manager).

The short timeframe we had for completing the LifeBook project in readiness for Bryan’s 90th birthday celebrations presented a challenge, but everyone in the project team worked in perfect unison to ensure that this target was achieved with time to spare. My thanks to Bryan, Halima, Nathalie and Tessa for their teamwork. Projects like this are a pleasant reminder as to why we do what we do. I hope Bryan and his family will enjoy his autobiography for generations to come!”
