Whether about people, organizations or ideas, stories are a shared legacy. They inform, instruct, entertain, and often become the shared knowledge of an audience seeking inspiration. It is why organizations and individuals reach to Doug Moe to help them develop the story that will inspire.
With storytelling skills honed across 40 years in Wisconsin journalism, Doug’s insightful magazine profiles and book-length biographies have made him the go-to journalist for magazine editors and book publishers.
In addition, he writes corporate and foundation histories and is a frequent collaborator with individuals, including former Wisconsin Governor Tommy G. Thompson, who want their stories written in a compelling style that will engage readers. Some of his recent work includes the autobiography of former Governor Tommy Thompson, the corporate history of Total Administrative Services Corporation, the 100-Year History of United Way of Dane County and the biography of Kit Saunders Nordeen, who pioneered women’s’ athletics at the University of Wisconsin.
Doug is much in demand as a keynote speaker, drawing on a vast array of behind the scenes stories from his life in journalism -- tales that include a rare, lengthy interview with Lana Peters, daughter of Joseph Stalin; standing at the shoulder of a celebrated surgeon as he transplanted a liver; sharing volatile living quarters with football star Lyle Alzado; going backstage with Chris Farley at Saturday Night Live; interviewing the U.S. intelligence officer who discovered Adolf Hitler’s will at the bottom of a dry well outside Munich; and many more.
In recent years Doug has served as a moderator or interviewer at numerous book launch events and panel discussions, including a panel at the Madison Reunion in which he interviewed the distinguished travel journalists Tim Cahill and Peter Greenberg.
