    A dynamic leader with strong management skills, Monica is currently a doctoral candidate whose research integrates her compelling interest in international business with her passion for diverse cultures. 

    Monica’s dissertation examines the perceptions of potential employees of international firms.  Prior to returning to student life, she worked as a consultant with clients of varying size and organizational complexity in multiple industries, ranging from insurance and healthcare, to petrochemicals and information technology.   Her strong communication skills supported her forte of working with stakeholders to develop consistency in expectations, then build alignment between project tasks and business objectives. The scope of Monica’s endeavours has encompassed the improvement of a firm’s corporate climate during business expansion, as well as developing and delivering project management training for business clients within Asia, Australia and Europe.

    Monica’s flair for effective public speaking is a credit to her training in both theatre and education.  She has delivered engaging presentations to academic and professional audiences in Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, India, Turkey and the USA.
