Angelina Penkova

Over the past 15 years Angelina has worked in different areas of Marketing and Communications. One of her latest projects is her adventure at People Portal where she specializes in creating and delivering training workshops on Storytelling.

Both her personal and professional experience have led to the understanding that the skill to tell powerful and immersive Stories can lead to improving Culture and the overall organizational environment, sharing a common vision and efficient collaboration between people and teams.

One of Angelina's strongest beliefs is that our workplace should be a birthplace for creativity, joy and shared meaning. On the one hand, we could build such an environment by exploring our own values and beliefs and building self-awareness, and on the other, by building a solid shared foundation in our work environment and company culture.
