Quoting a transcription and producing a marketing text

I just received a request for an unusual job.
The job requires that I "interview" a Commerical Director of a company about their products / company. In reality, no interview questions will be prepared. The Director will simply talk and the conversation will be recorded. I will then be responsible for putting together a marketing brochure based on this conversation.
Any ideas on how to quote a job of this type?
It should be noted that the interview and the brochure will all be in english (i.e. no traslation).
The job you were offered sounds like one that should have gone to a public relations person or a journalist.
I am a journalist and I interview people all the time and then write articles about them or their profession. I could work an interview into a brochure, that's just a different way of writing, something that PR people (or journalists who do PR on the side) do all the time.
