“About a year back, we were looking for BEI (behavioural event interview) assessors to supplement our assessment team. We connected with Sonica and tied up her firm for this service. Since then she has done over 75 assessments and is still going strong. Sonica also was instrumental in coaching our internal assessors. We hope to continue this invaluable partnership to cover additional areas of talent assessment and development.”

“Sonica and her team Rupali and Nandita from marching sheep partnered with us in delivering a program on psychological safety and emotional resilience to all managers in our company. In current times where keeping participants engaged and participative through virtual session is challenging, Sonica broke those barriers. Simple yet powerful concepts were explained with reflective activities and discussions. Sonica ensured the success of the program by leading the conversation amongst the group and bring out a meaningful learning experience

“Sonica and her team brought to life a very pertinent topic for M&M Women as part of our WWR – an all inclusive learning platform. The topic of “Navigating the 3 identities”, was dealt with very lucidly. We look forward to partner for more such programs in near future.

“At PepsiCo, we have partnered with Sonica and the Marching Sheep team to deliver insightful sessions and focus group discussions. Our journey started with FGDs conducted virtually for our women in sales. Despite the complexity of an audience from diverse backgrounds and work experiences, Sonica displayed great deal of thought leadership and ability to cull out key insights. Subsequent workshops facilitated by Sonica on themes such as “Asking For More” were thoughtfully designed and delivered in an engaging and interactive manner. We are proud partners of Marching Sheep team and I look forward to witnessing the difference Sonica and her team are making and will continue to make in the space of DEI.
Pallavi Banerjee, Learning Lead-India BU-PepsiCo
‘Its been a wonderful journey working with Marching Sheep on the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion workshops.

Definitely will work with them again!’
Faith Tham, Learning & Development Manager-Asia, Sony Music Entertainment
“ In 2021, we started our DE&I journey at UPL, putting in place a global workshop, called : The Power of Inclusion : Unconscious Bias. It is when we met Sonica Aron and the team. Since then, working with Marching Sheep has been a Great experience! More than a simple working collaboration, we are building a long term partnership. With the help of Marching Sheep’s professionalism, expertise and experience, we are moving our DE&I agenda at UPL in the respect of our Culture, Values and Purpose. With her passion for DE&I, Sonica is truly an inspirational speaker and one of the best expert I had met on this so important topic.”
Laetitia Fieu, Global Head – Learning & Development, HR Communication and Culture at UPL
“To move the needle on this journey of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and to drive meaningful dialogues on this topic; companies in the subcontinent need to embrace a powerful combination of passion, intent and resilience. This journey is not an easy one, especially given the social context and conditioning that comes with it. I found that Marching Sheep’s expertise to inject this powerful combination in teams is par excellence. When given a training/ facilitation assignment to curate a meaningful conversation on this topic, the team at Marching Sheep led by Sonica spends a lot of time and effort to understand the context of the business, articulate the unique problem statement, and then approach the solutioning with a very open mind before producing the module to the team for review. This helps the audience relate well to the examples and case studies making the learning process overall very immersive. It is because of this reason, I recommend Sonica and the team & urge them to continue to be this participative as learning partners to organizations on the DEI journey.”
Manvi Sushil, Lead – HR at GSK
“Working with Sonica is a fantastic experience. We have a strong, challenging dynamic underpinned by trust and psychological safety. This makes collaboration and constructive critique of each other’s work and perspectives easy rather than difficult. Sonica’s expertise in gender equity and human behaviour has meant that the work done with Uber has been built on a foundation of academic rigour. Her ability to take concepts and apply them to real life for cohorts of learners has provided great opportunities for Uber staff to stop, reflect and act on their reflections. As a partner, she is willing to listen to feedback in order to adapt work. She’s no pushover though – if she believes in the format or structure of a particular element, she will hold firm and seek to influence me. Her leadership of her team is also inspiring – providing enough space and time for her team members to flourish and do what they do best.”
Chris Folwell, Head – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at EMEA Uber
“We meet many people every day, but only some leave the mark, and one of them is Sonica. I first met Sonica when we @ Qapitol partnered with Marching Sheep to develop a training program for our current and future leaders. I was firstly impressed by Sonica’s ability to handle any situation calmly and patiently, even with the toughest to deal with. This natural skill of hers has ensured that our members were drawn to and committed themselves to the leadership training program.
Secondly, the expertise and experience that she brings to the table is immaculate. Rather than present mundane, bug-standard leadership training programs, she expertly understood our needs and customised programs that were the best fit. The construct of the programs, the means and methods used, the flexibility offered in the current challenging environment, the willingness to go the extra mile, with a smile, to ensure the program objectives were met, every element was absolute top-notch. She has a unique combination of humor and empathy that helps her to lift the spirit in any situation.
I would happily recommend Sonica and Marching Sheep to any organisation that is looking for a leadership building program that will help them create or develop successful leaders.”
