Have you defined corporate values and actually lived them in your team? Then talk about them! Carla Gabriel shows how employees can become protagonists, how stories can be told authentically, and how former team members can carry the values out into the world.

Wanderlust is a fundamental part of the Mashup DNA: Miriam commutes regularly between Berlin and Cape Town and Nora has already been on two world trips.

For the World Storytelling Day we share our personal memories of the greatest storytellers of our time.
