ABOUT MONICA KADE
Hello! Thanks for stopping by...
I'm Monica, a communication consultant and facilitator.
I help professionals and teams be better communicators and express who they are by teaching core acting techniques and presenting skills that are the basis for effective workplace communication (and day-to-day life). You can work with me through one-to-one speaker coaching, my corporate training program, public speaking workshops and communication masterclasses, and online communication courses.
My aim is to encourage each person that crosses my path to express themselves to Be their Best.
I write regularly for Commbank's Women in Focus and offer copywriting services - specialising in LinkedIn profiles and personal bios (more on that here).
I have worked and consulted with many well-known individuals and brands including, Commonwealth Bank, Wired for Wonder, Xero, Naked Ambition, Studio Kids, Tan-Off, Cachia, Gabrielle Bernstein, Christine Hassler and more.
I have 12 years combined experience in actor/presenting coaching and communications (storytelling, copywriting, interviews and publishing). My successful online ventures include, Mink Magazine, Career Confessions, editor for WorkDifferent and Managing editor for print publications Aspire and My Business magazine. I also have a Bachelor in Human Resource Management (never used it).
I love interviewing people and do this on my popular iTunes podcast show, where I interview people on Being their Best.
I have interviewed many well known creative minds, entrepreneurs, thought leaders and disruptors. Some of these include, Lisa Messenger, Lewis Howes, Christine Hassler, Gabrielle Bernstein, Mia Freedman, JP Sears, Guy Kawasaki, Leonard Brody, Taryn Williams, Sarah Riegelhuth, Sarah Roocroft, Franziska Iseli, Dr John Demartini, Andy Lark, Jo Burston, Nora Gedgaudas, Julie Stevanja and more!
"Communicating what you feel opens you up to unlimited possibilities and paves the way for an authentic life."
- Monica Kade
I am a professionally trained actor and presenter. Over the years I have trained at The Atlantic Theatre in New York City, NIDA, Screenwise and privately with John Noble (Lord of the Rings, Fringe, Elementary and Sleepy Hollow) and his daughter, Samantha Noble. I also teach acting at Pointbreak Drama on the Northern Beaches in Sydney.
In 2008 I was nominated as an Anthill Business Magazine Top 30 under 30 Entrepreneur. I've given talks on communication, storytelling and mindset at Commbank’s Wired for Wonder, Northside Clinic, Vibewire's FastBREAK U-Turn and Macquarie University's AIESEC Tour.
Now that we've done the pleasantries, let's get personal.
- I have an ongoing love affair with the ocean.
- I meditate and do Crossfit daily. I love snowboarding and surfing (in summer).
- I drink almond milk because since I were a kid the taste of milk makes me gag.
- I’m a morning person and I love crisp white bed sheets.
- I’d pick dusk over sunrise-the pastel colours.
- The ocean on a rainy day is my favourite.
- I love cooking for people and sharing meals.
- I like clean white spaces interspersed with colour
- I’ve lived in (and love) New York City.
- I don’t like doing laundry or washing my car (ugh, hate that).
- I also really love surprises and writing love letters.
Oh, and my career, well it wasn’t always this clear cut for me. I have been crippled with the idea of what my so called “gift” was. I felt pretty sure it was just some made-up bollocks like “purpose” and life forgot to give me one.
