From Words to World-Changers
Monica Perna is an accomplished Globish Coach & Mentor and Life Coach, who has dedicated herself to helping people unlock their potential through language learning. She has created the AUGE Method, a deeply immersive, interactive, and experiential approach to teaching that bridges gaps and brings the experience directly into the offices, schools, and homes of her students. Monica’s commitment to her students is unparalleled, and she invests 100% of her time to help them unleash their potential.
AUGE International Consulting, the company she has founded, is dedicated to providing excellent education solutions to its customers, with a focus on making learning a means of self-growth and development. The company’s commitment to giving back to the community is reflected in its support for lung cancer research through a portion of its annual income. Monica’s impact is remarkable, with over 1 million people viewing her online lectures in the last 36 months and over 20,000 students enrolling in her programs and coaching paths. This has resulted in coverage of her achievements by over 400 national and international media outlets in the last year alone.
Monica built AUGE International Consulting with a team of 40 employees, 80% of whom are women. They prioritize high technological standards and customer service, continuously updating their tools and digital innovations.
Monica’s passion lies in helping others unlock their potential through language learning. As a Globish Coach, Mentor, and Life Coach, she takes her duty to her students and team very seriously. Additionally, Monica is committed to making a positive impact on the world, having donated over $35,000 to various causes such as cancer research, natural disaster relief, and aiding Ukrainian refugees.
Monica expresses, “I truly believe that in life you get what you give, and that successful people are not born, they are trained! I worked hard to be here, and I think that my success lies on 3 main ingredients. First of all mindset: “I had to do a lot of work on myself. It is said that to achieve different results, you have to evolve into someone new. I’ve had to grow in terms of mindset, even accepting the distancing of people who didn’t like the new version of me, motivated, but above all focused on the goals I had set to achieve.”
She further adds, “discipline is the ability to keep going in the right direction because inside you know it’s true. Last but not least, courage has always been my strength. I’m not afraid to throw myself into something I don’t know how to do; I’m not afraid to study or work even 20 hours a day if I have to. The fact that I can count on myself makes me feel safe. After all, if you’re not the first to believe in yourself, whoever will?”
Monica finds her main source of inspiration in the city she lives in, Dubai. She is amazed by how the city was just a pile of sand until 50 years ago, and now it holds over 220 world records. Dubai’s vision of “Imagine, design, and execute it: impossible is possible!” inspires her to embrace the spirit and philosophy of the city and run with it. According to her, when living in Dubai, one has two choices: run with the city’s vision or flounder and watch others pass by. Dubai’s belief that “the sky is only the beginning” motivates Monica to aim for greater heights.
Monica’s efforts have been acknowledged by several awards and accolades, including being recognized as one of the “Most Successful Women of 2022” by Women on Topp and receiving the “Outstanding Leader” award by the Education 2.0 Fair in Dubai and the “Best English Language Coaching Provider – UAE 2022” award by MEA Business Awards.
For Monica, leadership is about being a guide, a source of inspiration, and an example of courage and perseverance. She believes in creating both followers and leaders, and has demonstrated this through her work as an entrepreneur and coach. Despite facing personal challenges, she has remained persistent and uses her past experiences as a source of inspiration for her present and future endeavors.
Monica wants to emphasize that no matter how difficult life may seem, there is always a way to overcome the challenges and turn them into opportunities for growth and success. She believes that persistence, dedication, and a positive attitude can lead to achieving even the most ambitious goals. Monica also encourages everyone to find a way to give back and make a positive impact in the world, as she has done with her English for Life program and her support for cancer research. She hopes her story will inspire others to pursue their dreams and use their experiences to make a difference.
