Zuza in a few words

I am a communications strategist, project manager, and freelance journalist helping conscious brands to increase their impact.

As a communications strategist, I advise eco-conscious brands how to put themselves more out there. During five months as a Communications Coordinator for a Dutch sustainability consultancy, I increased the company's LinkedIn following by over 500 new connections, as well as expanded their reach to novel channels such as medium.com or FutureLearn. I work as a Communications Consultant for Climate2025, an acceleration hub for climate action organisations, where I design digital marketing strategies.

As a project manager, I have a wide portfolio of dreams that I made true. From art gallery openings through educational festivals to online debates, I am an agile leader focused on collaborative approaches and non-violent communication.

As a freelance journalist, I delivered high-quality and well-researched articles to outlets as diverse as national news teams, EU-funded projects, print magazines, and lifestyle blogs. My work has been recognized with the third prize in an EU journalistic competition. For samples, take a look at zuzanazaruk.com.

I am seasoned in every aspect of online publishing, from writing and proofreading through basic graphic design to CMS. I can also help your team smoothen your work with various management and publishing tools, such as Asana, Slack, Trello, Hootsuite, Gantt, or MailChimp.

No matter whether you need a quick copy, an elaborate communications strategy, a media article, or just friendly advice, feel free to reach out. I'd be happy to be changing the world alongside your team.
