Here's what our customers are saying about us.
Beyond Bank Australia
“Sonali presented at Beyond Bank Australia ‘In Conversations with D&I” speaking about the topic of Inclusion to our employees. She is an inspiring presenter who speaks authentically, sharing numerous personal experiences around the topic of Inclusion and giving simple practical strategies for our employees to adopt in their day to day life. Sonali not only spoke wholeheartedly about the topic but she clearly role modelled inclusion throughout the presentation ensuring that she was inclusive with all individuals through the various forms of technology that were used to deliver her message. We will certainly continue to work with Sonali in our business for future D&I Initiatives.”

Wilderness Escape Outdoor Adventures
"Sonali has worked directly with me and my team at WEOA to review and help rewrite our internal policies and procedures on a range of HR and operational areas. Sonali quickly picked up suggestions that could help strengthen the outcomes, and closely worked with us to shape this project. Sonali has good project management skills and was able to identify and design processes and documentation that helped us in a detailed review process. She has the ability to pay attention to detail and brought her industry experience, cultural awareness and leadership insights to the project. Sonali is professional, organised and has a way about creating a consistent tone in the policies that she develops and reviews. I will recommend her to any organisation looking to engage a highly skilled consultant in areas of people and culture."

Flinders University, South Australia
“I had the privilege of working with Sonali on the Inclusive Leadership presentation she delivered for Flinders University students. Sonali delivered a highly engaging and thought-provoking presentation on being an inclusive leader which generated such rich discussion. I was particularly impressed with her ability to respectfully challenge students’ own biases, show her own vulnerability and personal challenges and offer very real and practical advice in regards to becoming an inclusive leader. Sonali is an incredibly warm, encouraging and authentic presenter and professional who is clearly passionate about making a difference. I would highly recommend Sonali.”
- Ursula Bronicki, Professional Development Trainer, Flinders University
LOCAL GOVERNMENT VOLUNTEER MANAGERS NETWORK
“Sonali provided a wonderful presentation on Reaping the Diversity Dividend and Unconscious Bias to the Local Government Volunteer Management Network (LGVMN) meeting at Playford on 4 September 2019. The presentation easily fits into our professional development objective, and I find I have to repeat my genuinely made comments (at the end of the presentation) that the delivery and content provided was one of the most engaging and thought provoking presentations that I have seen in the ten or so years that I have been a member. This view was repeated to me be many of those present, and it was clear that they not only enjoyed the session, but took away many learnings and observations which will help them manage diversity and unconscious bias, not only in their professional roles, but also in their personal lives.”
- Michael Feszczak, Chairperson, Local Government Volunteer Managers Network, South Australia
City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters
"Sonali provided an engaging and thought provoking presentation to a small group of the Councils Volunteers. Her presentation style was appealing, entertaining and she truly connected with the audience through her story telling. The audience felt involved, valued and appreciated throughout her presentation. Sonali is an enjoyable and inspirational presenter!"

Xlent disability services
"Sonali worked directly with me and my senior managers at Xlent Disability Services to review and help rewrite our HR, training and WHS policies and procedures. The quality of work she was able to deliver prompted us to engage her in a much wider project that included a range of our operational documents. Sonali has the ability to pay attention to detail and brought her industry experience, subject matter knowledge and people development insights to the project. She is flexible in her approach and was able to provide a quick turn around on tasks when needed. What I really appreciate about Sonali is she is so passionate and efficient about what she does with policy writing that she boosted my enthusiasm, and which achieved so much more together. She works well collaboratively and independently, and I recommend her to any organisation looking to upgrade and fine-tune their policies & procedures to current business needs."
- Carla Neilsen, HR Manager, Xlent Disability Services, South Australia
"Sonali is an exceptional facilitator who put a great deal of time and consideration into understanding Harvest Fair as a business, and to tailoring a leadership workshop to meet the unique needs of the Harvest Fair team. Sonali's professionalism is balanced with an open and authentic approach which instantly made our team feel comfortable and engaged. Sonali also demonstrated a keen awareness and flexibility in the agenda to allow for important discussions which arose during the workshop. Sonali's expertise and experience in developing inclusive leaders shone through during the workshop, and we look forward to working with Sonali again in the near future as we grow and develop our team at Harvest Fair."
