An Open Letter to Talented People
and Dedicated Doers

Hello! We’re talkStrategy, a full-service integrated marketing and communications agency based in San Antonio, Texas. We are growing and we want to grow the right way, which means people first, culture first.

Our Values are straightforward:

Be Collaborative.
Be Inspired.
Be Kind.
Be Strategic.
Have fun, seriously.

Our Vision is democratic:

Strategic communications for everyone.

talkStrategy has been under the enthusiastic ownership of Anamaria Suescun-Fast since July 2022 and even with decades of experience under our combined belts, there’s fresh energy aplenty. We are a Latina-owned, female-led organization with a diverse team of ambitious and knowledgeable professionals. Words like empathy, kindness, respect, and collaboration aren’t buzzwords to us—we take them to heart. We seek work and clients that inspire us and that, at the end of the day, make a positive impact in the community.

Our full-service agency offering covers a full spectrum of service lines, informed by client needs. On staff are skilled and multifaceted colleagues that provide account service, strategy, public relations, media relations, crisis communications, issue advocacy, research, creative design and development, graphic design, web design and development, video production, social media marketing, social media community management, digital advertising, media buying, email marketing, copywriting, content creation, and event coordination.

Here’s the part where you typically find euphemisms and wordplay to dress up the real work, but we believe in being transparent:

Be dynamic. The work is constantly shifting and you will be asked to change directions throughout the day. Many times. We are client-focused, so when deadlines and priorities shift, so does our workflow.

Do what you love. No matter the size of the client, or their budget, we bring our smartest, innovative thinking, not a cookie-cutter approach—because we are driven to. This means being thoughtful and intentional about every client objective we tackle. And that kind of work can be challenging if you aren’t really that into it.

Work hard and play hard. Honestly… this feels like a #humblebrag. We are thorough and sometimes that spills over into personal time—no bones about it. At the same time, we try to strike a balance of knowing how important the work is to clients while understanding we are not always saving the universe. We have created a space that encourages individualism, humor, irreverence, and permission to be human, supported by authenticity and flexibility.

Use cross-functional expertise. Simply take a look at our About Us page and you can see we are a fierce, but lean, team. Compare that to the long list of services we offer and you can determine that we all wear many hats; both out of necessity and out of desire to do all those things. We tend to attract people who don’t think of themselves one-dimensionally, but challenge themselves to do many things and do them well.

If this intrigues you, we invite you to send us your resume. We are interviewing interesting people with unique and marketable skills that can help us take what we do and make it that much better—whether by leveling-up our current offerings, or anticipating what’s next and important for our clients.

If you’re ready to walk the talk, email us at info@talk-strategy.com and let’s talk.
