What Drives You?


Do you struggle with finding your and establishing your personal power?
Do you find yourself making awkward conversation?
Are you dealing with self sabotaging beliefs?
Now is your opportunity to move from being a passive to ACTIVE participant of your own life!


Do you find being a key decision maker in your organisation STRESSFUL? Are you in an HR role and want to learn more about creating space for open and conductive conversation? Now is your time to learn the skills on how to become an outstanding team player or empowering leader!


As an educator, chances are your goal is to bring out the best in your students. You’re a persuasive and passionate fundraiser and you’re ready to make a huge impression in community while developing important life skills in those you teach. But how do you do that and look after yourself at the same time?

Hi, I'm Monica Moore

Looking for a new direction?

“I know that feeling of ‘lost’ or ‘in deep fog’ when you just don’t know which way to go. I anticipate my own life journey will continue to require negotiation with my sabotaging / anxious / depressive / self-doubting behaviours!

Learning to love, accept and manage our flaws is something that EVERYONE either works on – or avoids. I’ve learned to ‘flip’ these ‘perfect flaws’ and play them to my advantage. You can too. Start now.”

Monica Moore Keynote Speaker

What Do You Need?

Personal Empowerment

Can you re-write the script of your own life?? YES YOU CAN!
Personal empowerment comes through finding the courage to start conscious decision making which positively impacts you and your life.
That’s where as a mentor, writer, director and theatre practitioner, I can help.

Authentic Communication

Your story is not your end script.
In my many years of working closely with people from all walks of life, I’ve helped many to find their own authentic voice and essentially ‘develop their character,’ I enable clients to learn how to play your part, feeling empowered!
monica moore leadership

Leadership And Guidance

As a theatre professional, educationalist and business owner, I know what it takes to deal with ‘personalities’. I specialise in transforming traditional ‘Conflict /Resolution’ situations into powerful opportunities for collaboration.
What makes a good manager?
YOU do: with the right tools.


Monica is a dynamic communicator who engages sensitively with any group she is facilitating, working from where they are at and walks along side them.
