What the heck is communication about ?

In simple terms...

communication for companies is different from interpersonal communication in daily life. It’s about communicating with groups, not with individuals (mostly).

Let’s connect!

About Greenfocus

Andrea Holenstein

Greenfocus Founder

About me

How can I contribute to make this world more green and fair? After achieving my Master’s Degree in Communications at the University of Lugano (USI) in the year 2011, I was in the perfect mood for new horizons. Hence, I decided to pass on my newly-acquired knowledge with my long-standing experience as a journalist, media spokesperson and deputy communications director on an independent basis to sustainable businesses.

About Greenfocus

In 2012, I started out in Zurich as sole proprietor of Holenstein Communications Consulting. Since then, I consulted and supported a number of companies and organizations with sustainable objectives within the field of communications. By changing my firm’s name to Greenfocus Communications in 2015, I have now successfully incorporated my green outlook into my company name.

How Greenfocus works

What is the basis for  all communication activities? I am convinced that every successful work in the area of communications requires in-depth analysis of the initial situation, smart strategy and proper planning. Within my network, a number of skilled and seasoned partners such as sustainability-experts, graphic designers, web designers and photographers join forces to meet my client’s needs and requirements.
