Australian agency launches on-demand training: Zadro University (ZU)

For immediate release

Media Release: 2 August 2022

Zadro, an integrated communications agency, has expanded their award-winning training program, Zadro University (ZU), to an online digital platform to provide access to on-demand content and resources to upskill professionals in communications and marketing.

ZU was developed after recognising a gap in the market for executives wanting to improve their teams’ knowledge of integrated communications, without the high price-tag or time restraints of traditional training.

After providing face to face training sessions and then several successful live online sessions during lockdowns, Felicity Zadro, Founder and Managing Director said she was inspired to make ZU available to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

“Sharing knowledge has always been a big part of Zadro’s DNA and history. After 15 years in business, I know how important it is for all levels of an organisation to understand how to execute strategic integrated communications – but too often I hear people’s skills and experience are channel-specific or in need of support.

“Training needs to be both practical and evidence-driven; the Zadro team works in communications across a diverse range of industries, campaigns and channels every day and so are well-positioned to utilise our knowledge and share their breadth of experience via ZU.

“We work in a fast-paced environment. Executives want to support their people and provide training that results in an uplift in skills and insights quickly and efficiently; that’s why we believe this practical online training can help marketing and communications professionals deliver for their organisations,” said Zadro.

The new on-demand ZU training consists of:

  • Safaris – Concise, easy to digest premium on-demand video training sessions with workbooks, and covering topics including, public speaking, PR, digital marketing, client and project management and more.

  • Excursions – Bite-sized, short and sharp practical training videos that ‘pack a punch’ covering topics including, award writing, building business reputation, working with creatives and more.

  • Freebies – Tips, tools, resources and templates that provide strategic support.

  • Tailored Tours – Bespoke adventures tailored to the business’ needs.
