Who’s who in the ZU?

As an integrated communications agency, we do things a little differently.

All the team are multiskilled and work across marketing and communications (including PR and social). Whilst our universities are slowly turning the tide and teaching one or two integrated communications subjects, they are still producing only marketing OR communications graduates – however, at Zadro we have well and truly moved on.

 

What we do is take a marketing professional and teach them PR, or a communications manager and teach them marketing. It might be the hard way of doing business, but it means our customers can have the full spectrum of what they need – in one place. Which is the crux of our existence.

With our profession moving at lightning speed, there is much to know, to learn and to do. That is why, inspired by the extensive training Zadro employees go through, we have decided to open our doors and share what we know with others.

Don’t just take our word for it

Here’s what some previous Safari attendees have had to say:

“Safari enabled us to stop, learn, discuss and take inspiration from the presentations and discussion to implement in our own business.”

“ZU provides information that can be used in practical situations. It is extremely relevant and allows you to take the information and apply it to your day to day tasks.”

“There has been so much useful and relevant info provided that I feel will be a great tool to refer back to for years to come.”
