FACILITATOR

Monica Attard


Monica spent 28 years at the ABC working across radio and television. She was the ABC’s Russia correspondent at possibly the best time in modern history to be a Russian correspondent.

She reported on the coup against Mikhail Gorbachev, the collapse of Soviet communism, the rise of Boris Yeltsin and his peculiar brand of capitalism and democracy, the first Chechen war and she covered civil wars across the old Soviet Union. Four years of covering the revolution left her with just enough energy to pump out a book about the events.

Monica is now working with CNN International and The Hoopla, a women’s website, based in Sydney.
