- First, figure out the name(s) or the person or people you hope to find an interview from.
- Search International Directory of Business Biographies (IDBB) for two purposes:
- IDBB frequently quotes from/uses interviews. You might find enough to work with here.
- IDBB cites its sources. If there is an interview cited, you now know what to look for in library databases.
- Conduct a search using your executive's name within one of the business video databases:
- Search our business databases like Business Source Complete or Business via ProQuest to find articles that might contain interviews.
- Search tips:
- Search for the name of your person and limit by document type speech or interview if available
- Search the name of your person and the word interview
- Example: Steve Jobs AND interview
- Search the name of your person alone if nothing showed up with the word interview
- Search for articles mentioned in a source like IDBB (#2 above)
- Search tips:
- Search the internet for articles/interview
- Put the name of your person in quotes and the word interview
- For example, "Geoffrey Bible" interview
- Locate the company's website and check the About section or Investor or Investor Relations section for additional information about executives/directors; you may also find information within an annual report for the company.
