  • from LM, Director, National Children’s Charity on 12 Jul 2014

    Sonia’s coaching came at a time of considerable change and upheaval, within which it was entirely possible that I would face redundancy. Her clear and supportive, but firm, intervention enabled me to incisively separate the personal emotional from the strategic, and to find a way forward.


  • from Derek Campbell, Managing Director, Chiltern Aston Centre LTD on 30 Jun 2014

    I would recommend Sonia to anyone, in a leadership role, looking to improve and understand communication and benefit from other people’s energy. The improvements, with mutual effort, are very real in a remarkably short space of time, even to the extent of impacting on personal life without even realising it. Subsequently, I will be looking to work with Sonia again!


  • from Barry White, EAP Consultant, PPC Worldwide on 17 Jun 2014

    I have hired Sonia over the whole of 2009/2010 and have not been disappointed in any way. Her work is of a high standard and in terms of her coaching has resulted in good results with a range of people – from high flying directors to aspiring managers. She is adaptable, flexible – and comes up with the goods


  • from Garry Nelson, Senior HR Specialist, Westminster Academy on 10 Jun 2014

    I commissioned Sonia to work with the Academy on mitigating the effects on staff of a major change management programme arising from a significant reduction in income. She instinctively understood the dynamics of the situation and offered an appropriate level of practical and emotional support to the affected staff whilst maintaining the Academy’s position and reputation. Sonia’s interventions were well received, viewed as constructive and exceedingly helpful during what many found to be a traumatic experience. Her coaching approach and techniques were instrumental in making this programme successful.


  • from Kevin Bennett, Technical Director, CKS on 31 May 2014

    For anyone else who is contemplating the developing their Leadership and Management skills or personal coaching sessions, I whole heartedly recommend Ms Sonia Khera for her friendly and professional approach to coaching.


  • from Dr Sally Palmer-Walton on 19 May 2014

    I was lucky enough to work with Sonia over 5 telephone coaching sessions in 2012 as part of Homes for Haringey’s Aspiring Managers Programme.
    One year on, Sonia’s coaching still empowers me…she is a tremendously dedicated and inspiring coach. I highly recommend her.


  • from Vito Morawetz, Director of Interconnection at Virgin Media on 23 Apr 2014

    I warmly recommend Sonia as a strong telecoms professional. In the time she worked for me at MCI WorldCom Sonia managed significant supplier relationships that were critical for the delivery of major projects. She is a thorough, persistent and tenacious negotiator, fully focused on achieving her business objectives. She is also great lateral thinker and a master networker, with her peers and colleagues within an organisation as well as with its suppliers and customers.


  • from Jitesh Raghavani, Software Developer at Channel Capital on 11 Apr 2014

    I worked with Sonia for assistance in preparation for a work placement. Sonia was instrumental in focusing my search around my key strengths and goals. Her insights using detailed, specific and real-life examples allowed me to focus my search and explore possibilities that previously I would never have considered. I would highly recommend Sonia’s career coaching and mentoring services.


  • from Selina Neri, Former VP Global Sales Support, Deutsche Telekom / VP Consulting and Solutions on 09 Mar 2014

    I have used Sonia’s professional expertise both in Deutsche Telekom (during my time as VP Global Sales Support) and in Colt (while I was managing the European and Indian Consulting & Solutions organization). Sonia has been instrumental in the process of developing my senior management team at both organizations. I have also used her services to develop junior managers into talented leaders of the future. Through her expert coaching we have been able to nurture strong teams and creative, passionate and exemplary managers. Sonia’s approach and style of coaching is unique. Her background in various industries (including ICT) makes her a very valuable business partner. My organizations and I truly enjoyed working with her and established trust from the start, allowing for the achievement of great results.


  • from James Hemlin, Commercial Operations Director at euNetworks on 06 Feb 2014

    I worked with Sonia during 2010/11 focusing on management and communication styles. The sessions increased awareness of my personal impact and influence and shared some best practice tools and techniques for managing and delivering through people. Sonia has tremendous focus and energy. The sessions were intense, challenging and centered on business and personal challenges which made them both relevant and hugely rewarding. I continue to benefit from the insights provided and the tools and techniques developed with Sonia.


  • from Sushil Radia, Managing Director, Westminster Homecare on 03 Jan 2014

    I found these coaching sessions very valuable: I was able to realign my priorities, save time and more importantly gain satisfaction in my work. I achieved my personal and business objectives and a platform for future growth. I recommend her wholeheartedly.


  • from Dr Sally Palmer-Walton on 24 Dec 2013

    I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sonia to individuals and companies alike. We need more people like her in the workplace: someone with strong integrity and sincerity who you can trust and who has the passion to inspire you from start to finish.


  • from Nick Lester, Director of Product Management, Transaction Network Services (UK) Ltd on 08 Dec 2013

    The power of Sonia’s coaching is quite frankly amazing…..my career horizons have broadened enormously.
