"Sonja added excellent value helping to review and update the Edublox sales and marketing strategies. This included standardising the reach to sales process that resulted in a much more focused and targeted activities, and custom-made reporting. I appreciate our dialogue and debates, sometimes starting with very different viewpoints and usually ending with creative and unique solutions to the issues at hand. She also assisted a couple of our franchisees and they gave extremely positive feedback about the personalised coaching experience. Her presentation and workshop (about customised marketing strategies and planning processes) at our franchisee conference was world class and well received."

She is tenacious and unwavering in her commitment to excellence. Strong interpersonal skills come naturally to her and add further value to her exceptional negotiation skills. 
Besides Sonja's strong business acumen she displayed great team leadership and had many successes in her role. Much reliance was placed on Sonja for her strategic awareness which left the company in a positive position post her departure."
