Monica Davidson

Monica Davidson is an award-winning expert on the creative industries, who began her creative life as a freelance journalist and filmmaker before starting a film production company in the early nineties.

Her experience highlighted how unprepared creative people can be for a life of entrepreneurship.

After 20 years of informally helping others to develop their creative businesses, Monica founded the social enterprise Creative Plus Business Group in 2015.

She is a renowned speaker and author, with a Masters in Screen Business from AFTRS. Her passion is helping other creatives to master their small business skills and take the reins of their freelance careers. She also loves pink champagne, old movies, and the gentle art of pub karaoke.

She focuses on goal-setting, business and strategic planning, financial literacy and understanding markets.

In 2013 Monica was appointed as the first NSW Creative Industries Business Advisor through SmallBizConnect. In 2015 she was named as one of the Westpac 100 Women of Influence for her work in the creative industries.

In 2017 Monica and the team were proud to join the NSW Department of Industry Business Connect program as creative industries specialists.
