Dr. Orsolya Szabó: Empowering Businesses Through Strategic Communication and Digital Nomadism

Dr. Orsolya Szabó, the founder of Zsolya Communication, has crafted a remarkable career from lawyer to business consultant to communication expert. But through all her professional transformations, effective communication has remained at the core of her work.  

Dr. Szabó initially trained as a lawyer, graduating in 2016. During her legal career, she quickly realized that communication abilities were just as critical as legal knowledge when trying to win in court or earn clients' trust. As she reflects, "Excellent communication can open doors, make cooperation smoother, and increase client experience." Respect, inspiration, and support became pillars of her communication approach. This mentality paved the way for her multifaceted career.  

The Fork in the Road  

Dr. Szabó 's professional journey took an unexpected turn on a helipad in New Zealand in 2014. Seeking adventure and solace, she left behind her life in Hungary, armed with nothing but a backpack and a one-way ticket to the southernmost country. Her aim was to reset, discover herself, and find solace in solitude through this solo journey.   

The experience delivered much more than that; it catalyzed a career transformation. During a four-day hike, Dr. Szabó met a digital nomad, opening her eyes to an entirely new way of life and work. Although well-qualified as a Hungarian lawyer, she understood the limitations her background posed for international opportunities. This realization drove her to pivot her career. Leaving her legal career behind, she applied to a Big4 company, immersing herself in business and consultancy.  

The helipad moment thus marked the birth of Zsolya Communication, founded on the intersection of Dr. Szabó's legal expertise and her newfound passion for business consultancy. From that point, as she puts it, "the rest is history," and her legacy in communication and consultancy continues to grow.  

Building a Hyperlancer Hub  

Zsolya Communication grew rapidly from individual communication consulting into a community of location-independent experts. Though high-quality online communication was initially Dr. Szabó 's tool for digital nomadism, her one-person endeavor quickly expanded. More experts joined from Budapest to the countryside and beyond—all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.  

This network of freelancers, or "hyperlancers," embraces flexibility in when, where, and how they work. What matters is not physical proximity but shared professionalism and values. Dr. Szabó explains, "We believe the value of work does not depend on where and under what conditions it is done."  

Instead, Zsolya Communication focuses fully on customer success and enjoyment. The team aims to collaborate smoothly regardless of time zones or geography. As Dr. Szabó puts it, "The only thing we don't compromise on is professionalism."  

This hyperlancer hub allows Zsolya Communication to remain maximally adaptable in addressing clients' needs. At the same time, it fosters a sense of community among experts. By building a cooperative network united by expertise rather than location, Zsolya Communication delivers premium consulting that aligns with Dr. Szabó 's values of freedom and work-life balance.  

Education as a Catalyst for Change  

At Zsolya Academy, Dr. Szabó actively educates others through workshops, webinars, and trainings. She heavily invests in lifelong learning for herself and her team, studying at top universities worldwide. Dr. Szabó then synthesizes the latest trends and transforms complex concepts into accessible courses tailored to clients' needs. She says, "Finding somebody who can give the best tips and tricks implemented to your language and understanding is a challenge." By making cutting-edge knowledge understandable, Zsolya Academy empowers individuals and companies to navigate the digital landscape effectively.  

Empathy Drives Business Success

With expertise in law, corporate advising, and crisis management, Dr. Szabó offers a multidimensional approach to online communication consultancy. Her wide-ranging industry experience empowers her to deliver inventive solutions that defy conventional wisdom, giving her clients a competitive advantage. Her research illuminates the vital role of online presence during critical business growth phases, leading to tangible results for clients, both small and large.   

Zsolya Communication's subscription system revitalizes social media strategies for small businesses, while her consultative guidance educates multinational companies to confidently navigate the digital realm. In essence, Dr. Szabó serves not just as a consultant but as an educator for digital success.  

As Zsolya Communication continues to expand, Dr. Szabó envisions a future marked by creating value and building a global community. Her mission is to empower clients to become industry beacons while fostering an environment of continuous learning and support. In the midst of it all, she remains grounded by her values and the desire to make a positive impact in the lives of those she touches.
