Mice Net : February 2009
obituary Monica Hole April 15,1970 - December 11,2008 n early December 2008, Monica Hole, industry colleague and friend to many, passed away after losing her long battle with liver cancer. Monica was co-founder and partner of Condiment Communications, an established Sydney-based sales and marketing consultancy firm. While Sydney born, Monica’s career took her to London and New York where she spent six years at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel as director of marketing of food and beverage. She returned to Sydney in early 2001 and started Condiment Communications in February 2002 with long-time friend Sally McIntosh. Monica was an active member of many industry associations and from 2005 to 2007 she sat on the Board of the International Special Events Society (ISES) Sydney Chapter. She worked in the voluntary position of Vice President of Marketing on the ISES Executive Board, and was instrumental in driving the marketing of monthly members’ meetings, monitoring the website and any changes required, dealing with trade shows and the variety of marketing administration a membership association requires. Monica will be remembered for her smart wit, her creative mind, her intellect, her professional attitude and passion for the industry. She was not only respected by her clients for her ability to understand and deliver, but all who came in contact with her enjoyed working and spending time with her. Of Monica (and Sally’s) contribution to the ISES Sydney Chapter, ISES Sydney president Meg Fisher said: “We greatly appreciated the level of detail these two ladies gave to ISES, the ideas and imagination, and their calm and humorous outlook on life. We are sad for Sally in the loss of her business partner and friend and sadder still not to have Monica ‘s beautiful face smiling at us throughout our events industry meetings.” Monica is survived by her husband, David Barnett, and her step-daughter, Chloe.
