Hailing from the beautiful islands of The Bahamas, Monique Russell believes leadership is a lifestyle and she proves it in everything she does. Monique is the founder and managing partner of Clear Communications Solutions, LLC, where she teaches effective communication strategies to leaders in a variety of business sectors. As a communications expert, she has taught thousands of leaders globally and has consulted for government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and for fortune 100 companies such as Verizon, Intel, and Equifax. She has worked with institutions of higher education in the areas of diversity, cultural sensitivity, public speaking, and communications.
Monique has been a leadership and communications facilitator to local Chambers of Commerce, national associations, school groups, and faith-based organizations. With academic training in Broadcast Journalism, Public Relations, and Public Speaking, it’s no wonder Monique has appeared as a guest on business local and international radio shows, and she’s been quoted in publications as a subject matter expert in the areas of leadership and effective communications. Monique’s civic involvement includes serving as a board Advisor for non-profit groups, establishing a Tedx afterschool club, sponsoring anti-bullying campaigns in the Caribbean, and facilitating programs at Junior Achievement among others. Despite the credentials and success, through the journey of life, Monique lost her confidence but reclaimed it through a series of empowering exercises and resources. It is because of her multi-dimensional experiences that her teachings on how to communicate confidently from the inside out are very effective. Monique is married with two boys and loves to read.
