ABOUT THE SPEAKER TRAINING MASTERCLASS
SPEAKER TRAINING MASTERCLASS is a 1.5hour fun, interactive and informative online masterclass.
You will be presenting. You will be getting out of your head and into your body.
The practical components of the class are tailored to each person. The class is a small, intimate group limited to 10 people.
I will work with you individually within the group online setting.
No two people are the same. We’re all at different places within ourselves and in business.
Each person has varied strengths. Each individual has different obstacles to overcome and areas for improvement when it comes to their personal communication habits.
Over the years my work has enabled me to work with groups and one-on-one with individuals. This experience has enabled me to spot subtleties in an individual’s
performance and communication that might otherwise only be spotted with a tuning fork - this is my gift.
I’ll help you recognise your blocks and support you to move through them very quickly to improve your presenting and communication before you leave speaker training masterclass.

WHY SELF EXPRESSION AND COMMUNICATION MATTERS
We live in a world where communicating and expressing ourselves is critical to our happiness, wellbeing, mental health and business activities. Yet so many of us shy away from being in the spotlight (even a spotlight of 2). Many of us cringe at the thought of having to introduce ourselves to someone in a room full of people - let alone speak onstage. For others, simply saying hello to someone in the street can be awkward and uncomfortable.
More and more people are hiding behind screens and communicating virtually. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, the more open we can learn to be with ourselves, the greater we will be at communicating with others in the REAL world. The more comfortable we can be in our skin, the more confident we are when it comes to delivering our message and raising our voice.
My aim is to encourage each and every person that crosses my path to express themselves and be the best communicator they can be.
I have seen countless people walk into my classes scared, nervous and shy. And then I have seen them leave with a newfound confidence, a connection to self and the realisation that they have something to say.
And that is why I do what I do. Because seeing this transformation lights me up from within. It makes me smile knowing that maybe that person will find the courage to launch their business idea. Maybe my class will inspire them to talk to someone new and make a friend. Maybe, one thing I say will show someone they are capable and talented enough to start a YouTube series or become a keynote speaker.
I want to help you bring the feeling inside of you out - that’s what communication is about.
The more we express ourselves, the more we step into our greatness. And we’re all destined for greatness. And sometimes we just need a little guidance along the way for us to realise our power.
- TESTIMONIALS -
"I was extremely impressed by the value Monica’s public speaking masterclass offers. Within the two hour class, she had not only covered the basics of public speaking (i.e. posture, speed, projection, conquering nerves), she had provided detailed and personalised feedback for each participant. Monica is incredibly observant and picks up the nuances of your performance in a way that most people can’t. She offers constructive criticism in a gentle yet helpful way, so you feel inspired not intimidated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend one of Monica’s masterclasses to anyone who wants to develop their public speaking skills and confidence. I’ll definitely be back for another!”
- Emma Norris, journalist and copywriter at Content in the City
“From the very beginning, Monica created a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for the class. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and not only received professional information which helped me develop my expression, but also formed a new circle of friends. Monica responded to our speeches with specialised knowledge, and even though I have never struggled to speak publicly as such, I received valuable tools and recordings, all of which are designed to excel even the most established talker. I would recommend this program to everyone, it can merit all—no matter which level of public confidence has already been established.” - Phoebe Lipcar, Model, Wink Models
"With so much filling my life in business and work, I always find it hard to set aside time for professional development. When Monica got in touch, though, I jumped at the opportunity to have some coaching in presenting and speaking. She is easy to talk to, friendly and great at giving feedback in a way that isn’t intimidating or scary. In fact, it’s the opposite! I wanted to jump straight back in and do more video practice to get my talks just right. I wrote down loads of notes and she also video’d our session which has been extremely useful so I can see for myself the areas I want to tweak. Her best advice for me was “Don’t be afraid of silence. Use the pause in your talk to draw people in”. YES!!! Loved our session and would highly recommend Monica to others looking to fine tune their speaking, communication and presenting skills."
- Anna Hodges, Purple Squirrel Recruitment
“Monica transformed the way I approach my speaking engagements. In a short space of time, she was able to clarify my intention, identify the blocks that were stopping me from shaping my content more effectively, and encourage me to connect with my message in a deeper way. The work I’ve done with Monica has boosted my confidence no-end and given me the kickstart I needed to move forward in my speaking career. Thank you Monica!”
- Rebecca Ray, Clinical Psychologist, Author, Speaker
"I did a speaker training session with Monica and it was really valuable. I speak often and have been struggling to get to the next level with my speaking. I was able to work through lots of challenges I have with speaking and she provided some great advice that I am looking forward to using in my next speech."
- Dean Salakas, The Party People, Speaker
"Monica is creative, soulful, clever and professional - a rare combination of talents and skills! She is a wonderful writer, presenter and created the most amazing podcast for Wired for Wonder in 2016. Her experience was so valuable in helping us create some content with a difference. Thank you Monica I know I'll find opportunities to collaborate with you again in the future!"
- Sarah Roocroft, Co-Founder Commbank's Wired for Wonder, Founder The Wonder Tribe & Sienna Baby
"Thank you again for your time yesterday it was well worth my time. I found it a very positive experience and best of all you provided me with simple, realistic tips for any presentation that are both easy to remember and implement anywhere. In fact, I used a couple of them this morning prior to addressing to 60 business owners and subsequently received some nice compliments following the event. I am more than happy to recommend your services and look forward to hearing more about your upcoming workshops." - Michael Locke, Locke Pty Ld
"I had the great pleasure of working with Monica for some online presentation training in preparation for my LinkedIn video series. I wasn't sure what to expect and was amazed and impressed with the insights she was able to share with me. Her excellent coaching and feedback very quickly identified the key areas for me to improve and her skilled suggestions and comments within minutes enabled me to do the same presentation 100% better. From speaking slower and less hand movements through to bringing more conversational style to the presentation, her skilled insights enabled me to start to improve very quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their presentation and speaking skills." - Michelle Gennoe, On Purpose Transformation
