How we started
LifeBook Memoirs came into being in 2011 as the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Roy Moëd and Yvette Conn.
The realisation that his elderly father, Jules, was in decline prompted Roy to help him rediscover his zest for life and his sense of purpose. Roy hit upon the idea of giving his father a project to focus on and asked him to start recording the story of his life.
Roy’s motivations were twofold. Not only did he want to help his ailing father; he also wanted to preserve the family stories that his father had told around camp fires and dining tables over the years. As the saying goes, ‘people only die when they are forgotten,’ and Roy did not want the light to go out on his father’s stories and memories. He wanted to capture and preserve them.
Jules’s project ultimately became Life Is for Sharing – the first-ever LifeBook and the catalyst for what the company has since become.
From these low-key and very personal beginnings, LifeBook Memoirs has grown considerably. It remains a small family firm, and yet it leads the world in the private autobiography sector. The company now operates in more than 40 countries – from America to Austria and from Northern Ireland to New Zealand. And the list is growing.
