We have had some amazing jobs. For great companies. And worked on incredible projects that were fun and sound glamorous and people would kill to work on. True!

In the process, we have learned a thing or two about how to make amazing things happen. Smart strategies, clear objectives, maximizing connections, listening carefully, creating executable plans, building highly functioning teams, creating a passion for a product, developing public/private partnerships, contributing to the community and exceeding expectations. Check!

Corporate. Non-profit. Civic organizations. Executive leadership. Board of Directors. Volunteer. Yup!

So whether it is creating an international arts festival or developing Super Bowl plans for a National Football League team, to a naming rights deal for a Fortune 100 bank or a national product launch, to training sales managers or wrangling clowns, we have done it. Wow!

Now JZworks is ready to jump into great projects, with wonderful people. That's where you come in. If you need help, we can add value, create smart strategies, be your extra arms. We are here. Let's talk. Maybe our team can help your team.

Marketing. Sponsorship. Business Development. Community Relations. Events. Sales Training. It's what we love, and what we've been doing in Seattle and around the country for over 25 years.

And ask us about the images on this site—there are lots of stories!

We are experienced professionals who love what we do. We know. Everyone says that. But we really mean it. We are passionate about making a difference. We are driven to be successful. We are fun to work with (so we hear) and we like to have a good time while doing quality work.

When you hire JZworks, you get us, not a lot of staff, layers or managers. Our experience, our attention, and our drive for success. And if we aren't the be-all-end-all for you, we will assemble the right group of professionals that fit your needs for your project or company.

Think strategic collaborators to make 'it' happen.

Jane Zalutsky, Founder & Principal

I love making connections. Connecting people to each other, to new ideas, organizations, and experiences. Developing strategies that intertwine creative ideas with realistic, executable plans is one of my strengths. Because I've been fortunate enough to figure out how to make things happen that haven't happened before, I'm comfortable taking risks. I believe that if I can visualize it, I can make it happen. It may be crazy, but it's worked so far. And I believe that it's a fundamental responsibility to help make a better community. So I try to do that through my work and in my personal life as well.

More about Jane

Paula Beadle, Principal

Making things happen is my passion. The sailing poster in my office says, "Make it Happen". "Focus, Strategy, Action, Results" is the best description of how I work and sail. As a facilitator, I can always be counted on to ask the question: "What are we trying to accomplish?" and then say: "Let's make a list of ideas". The bigger the challenge, the more excited I am. And I believe it's my obligation to share my experience, knowledge and passion to help people achieve excellence. These days there is no shortage of great ideas; I believe the magic lies with people who can actually make things happen.

More about Paula

Business Development

Seattle Center released an RFP for assistance with their Sponsorship program. JZworks answered the call, but for much more than just Sponsorship support. Jane and Paula presented the case for a complete 'rethink' of the overall business development strategy. They delivered a plan that repositions Seattle Center to develop larger, integrated, long-term partnerships, leveraging the 50th Anniversary of the 1962 World's Fair, its status as the #1 tourist attraction in the state of Washington, and moving it forward on major reinvestments in the campus.

Marketing

When Jane was asked to lead the Hispanic Marketing group at WaMu, there was a clear need to integrate all Spanish marketing, merchandising and advertising; develop a stronger alignment with general market advertising; and take advantage of the opportunities to increase market share. Jane brought together an enterprise-wide team of business partners to develop the Hispanic Center of Excellence, which drove internal alignment, developed best practices, and monitored results across business units.

Sponsorship

Puyallup Fair and Events Center, the 8th largest Fair in the nation, asked Paula to develop a new sponsorship strategy and manage their sales efforts. She had big plans in mind. She revamped the sponsorship program, from development of new sponsorship assets and benefits to creating new marketing materials. She championed an innovative way of thinking about sponsorships. And she delivered 26% revenue growth with the addition of 12 new sponsors in the first two years.

Community Relations

When Russell Investments moved its corporate headquarters from Tacoma to Seattle, the company knew it needed to rethink its Community Relations strategy. Jane helped develop that plan. She created a reference tool for Russell on the Seattle non-profit community, including detailed information on civic, cultural, social service, GLBT, biomedical and environmental organizations.

Events

Back in the day, Washington Mutual was opening 250 branches per year in markets across the country. Jane led the team that produced all the Grand Openings. Under her management, coordination with field partners improved, events were produced more efficiently while simultaneously allowing for greater customization, business goals were defined, and ROI increased.

Sales Training and Professional Development

Paula's passion for sales training and professional development blossomed, during her tenure with Clear Channel Communications, where she was introduced to Creative Problem Solving and Discover Your Strengths. Over the last 10 years, Paula has developed and led sessions for Clear Channel, WaMu, Tribune Company, Portland Trailblazers and Feld Entertainment.
