About me ✓ Monique is a certified mentor
I'm inspired by mentoring and doing good work others can’t live without.
If you are interested in improving how your organisation engages with employees, leadership positioning or leadership development, then I'd love to bounce ideas with you. I'm a senior communications professional with over 18 years of experience across marketing communications, internal communications, media relations and brand management in Germany, Australia and America. I am currently freelancing in Germany under the name Zytnik Consulting while I am on sabbatical from a large Australian government department where I co-managed an internal communication team. Throughout my career I've found value through having my own mentors and also mentoring others. It feels so great to be a part of a movement that pays it forward.
I have worked across a diverse range of industries and companies. The smallest being three people and the largest over 50,000. I have previously worked for Berlin tech companies and start-ups including Adjust (analytics for mobile marketers) and Younicos (renewable energy systems with battery storage) in B2B marketing roles. I have also consulted to BVV (German superannuation fund for the banking industry) for many years transforming their stakeholder engagement. I started my career in 2001 as an intern in a public relations company in Washington DC, America. This was back in the day when we physically made and printed clip-books for our clients, cutting and pasting newspaper clippings on graph paper and photocopying them. Times have changed!
My love of internal communications has developed over the years, working in key roles within Australian Unity and The Victorian Department of Human Services and also with ANZ Bank. I truly believe a company's greatest asset is their staff.
