Founder, Harvest Performance

“I hired Sonia to deliver an Instructional techniques programme for our trainers. As a business partner I found her results focussed, committed to achieve, and responsive to our needs. As a participant in her class, I found her inspirational, motivating, and world class. Having attended many train the trainer sessions in my 10+ year career in ‘learning’, I was suprised how much I learnt about myself, developing engaging learning and effective delivery skills. Not only was the content she designed excellent, the delivery really set the benchmark for our trainers. She created a community of trainers who are now enjoying sharing that passion and learning with others in their teams. We are all looking forward to Sonia’s next visit.” June 21, 2011 Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value

We did the “Instructional Techniques” workshop for 5 days in Emirates Aviation College with her and the one word which comes to my mind to describe is “perfect”! Her knowledge on the subject as well as her personality created magic for all the participants. Her ability to explain the concepts so simply was a match winner! All the best!

“Sonia is an ANGEL! I had been struggling to figure out how to put an engaging program together around the topics of my book for a long time and then I sat down with Sonia and in less than 3 hours, we had the entire workshop laid out. Not only that but Sonia’s extensive experience in building educational programs is remarkable. I am so happy with my new workshop, the M.O.P Mindset on Prosperity 2 hour Workshop. I feel confident that my students will get a kick out of the material and remember it. If you get the chance to work with Sonia, don’t pass it up, she’s a genius, and I am forever grateful for her help and experience!” March 24, 2011 Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

In this retrospect, I can honestly say that Sonia demonstrated her expertise in performance consulting by her curriculum development and teaching method. Her mastery of the domain is made clear just by observing her interaction with students. She is able to grasp the essential points of a student’s question, and answer in a simplified form just enough to scaffold the student to high levels of thinking.
