ZELENKA has been in the language industry for more than 27 years and, as a family company, has always been focused on human-to-human values. This approach has resulted in excellent feedback from clients and vendors alike, and it is the company culture that has made this possible. Since company culture is unique to each company’s (or team’s) circumstances, this presentation does not offer a single recipe for building company culture, nor is it intended as “the mold” for such a process. Instead, the session sheds light on some impressive human-to-human practices used at other companies throughout the industry and shows how these practices not only add value to company services, but also contribute to their success. Regardless of size, composition, or mission, there’s something for everyone in this session.
I am the CEO (“Chief Energy Officer”) of ZELENKA Translations, a company that my father started in the Czech Republic over 28 years ago. Since taking over the company in 2007, my team and I have been pursuing a single vision: to maximize the value of our translation services through simple, close, human-to-human relationships with our vendors and clients.
I am a Czech-speaking American living in the Czech Republic for 6 years now.
