Working in both Corporate and Performing Arts sectors for the last 9 years, Neda, BA (Performance Studies), now combines her passion for both areas through her Rhythm Effect work.

In the corporate sector Neda has been extensively involved in and responsible for leadership programs in which she co-ordinated and managed employees to be motivated, active and efficient problem solvers.

While in the Performing Arts sector, her passion for dance and music took her to Brazil in 2002 for a year of dance, percussion and Brazilian life. Her time in Brazil has resulted in a deeper, more empathetic approach to the dance and music she has been performing and teaching for years adding to her understanding of music in all its forms for team and leadership development.

Neda regularly performs at some of Australia’s most loved festivals including East Coast Blues and Roots, Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass and Womad. Neda has also had the fortune of supporting Daddy Cool, Angelique Kidjo, Ziggy Marley, Paul Kelly, The Black Seeds and John Farnham, just to name a few.
