PAUL OLTEANU – In the last 10 years 

In the last 10 years I managed to discover, clarify and live, day by day, what I feel it is for me a profound personal and professional mission: to support people and organisations in their efforts to communicate better, to know each other in an authentic way, while making daily steps towards a better version of themselves. 

During this time I have developed and delivered programmes that sum up over 9500 hours of training, coaching and consultancy on different themes, such as communication psychology, self-knowledge, psychological profiling applied in organisations, public speaking, personal branding and group dynamics to audiences from Europe, USA and Asia. 

And I feel it’s only the beginning. 

At present, I focus on developing and delivering training and coaching programmes with an approach centred on neuroscience, on understanding the architecture of the human personality, on emotions that govern us and on evaluating and transforming the thinking patterns that influence our behaviour, at both individual and organisational level.

In spring of 2016, I teamed up with Melania Medeleanu and Dragos Bucurenci, when I became Senior Partner at Khastalia – a consultancy company specializing in communication strategy and executive coaching.

Starting with 2014, I am one of the first five consultants from Europe, certified in Story-Based Transformation Process – an innovative method, based on the principles of inductive learning and also, on neuroplasticity of the brain, a methodology that integrates daily exchange of short stories, with the purpose of generating fast personal and organisational transformation.

From 2013, I am Partner at Kahler Communication Romania and I am a certified trainer and coach in Process Communication Model – an awarded personality theory, used by NASA to recruit and prepare the teams and also, it was used for communication training of American Presidents.
In the last 4 years I delivered the PCM model to over 1400 professionals (managers in national and multi-national companies, entrepreneurs, trainers, coaches and consultants ) either in specialised programmes, or in open training (alongside my partners from EXEC-EDU). 

In the past, I was Director of Communications at Romanian-American University and Head of Strategy & New Business for the advertising agency Headvertising. 

In parallel with training and consultancy, over time I engaged in several educational projects, as well as environmental projects and I worked with organisations such as Amgen, AVON, Bayer, BCR, BRD, CBRE, CEZ, Gothaer, Garmin, Graffiti BBDO, Heineken, JTI, Kubis Interactive, Oracle, Raiffeisen Bank, SAP, Securitas Romania, Servier Pharma, Tempo Advertising, UNDP, Vodafone, Wrigley or WWF Romania (you can see the complete list here).
