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

It all started in the spirit of optimisim
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.
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.
