ZOLD is thrilled to be working with Sofia and Kiwano Marketing. The marketing landscape is littered with ‘green’ professionals, but we were very impressed with and ultimately swayed by Sofia’s passion to the industry and commitment to our like-minded ideals. I am very confident that Sofia and Kiwano are perfect to assist us in creating a brand that Canadians will grow to know and trust in the months and years to come.
Sofia is extremely productive and demonstrates a great deal of initiative. She spear-headed many projects that improved our product positioning. These include a business plan detailing how to penetrate a new market, and an industry association membership that is delivering an exceptional return. I admire her work ethic and enthusiasm.

Sofia led an excellent webinar as part of my company’s educational series on sustainable business practices.
Sofia is someone who is always on the cusp of marketing trends, able to propose and execute new and fresh ideas that deliver results.
It seems cliche, but Sofia is truly a dedicated professional, and commits herself completely to the project at hand. She is open to feedback and understands the relationship of marketing and sales. She has an ability to bring together various departments and present a customer-centric marketing approach. I would recommend Sofia to any organization looking to sharpen their marketing messaging.
I had the utmost pleasure of working with Sofia directly. I’ve never worked with someone so results-driven, with a proactive and professional attitude. Always pushing for the extra mile, while at the same staying positive and supportive of her team members. Can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed both seeing her work and working with her.
Working with Sofia is always pleasant. She is very motivated and driven to providing quality results. Sofia brought much insight to the marketing team. With always a smile on her face, I couldn’t recommend her enough.
A creative and very passionate person, Sofia is an expert with multi-tasking as she simultaneously handles multiples projects with care and diligence. She always comes up with the best ideas and well executed projects amidst cost and time constraints.
Sofia was hired about 3 weeks prior to the product launch and helped create and release all marketing collateral within a very short period of time. The content is some of the best messaging that I have seen. I was confident in her abilities to generate ideas and coordinate with the various teams to get the work done. She is a person who has high energy, is very organized and dedicated to the job at hand. I would work with Sofia again in the future.
Sofia is a smart, international, high energy and results-oriented marketing manager. She has a very strong work ethic. Once she has helped her client to define a strategy and a segment, she fully dedicates herself to the execution of the plan, which is by far her strongest point. I highly recommend Sofia to any decision maker who is looking for results fast and is working in a high energy fast paced, international environment.
Sofia is a top marketing professional who can properly relate prospects’ business needs with the products and solution she wants to promote. She uses a hands-on approach to produce immediate results. Excellent team player and a pleasure to work with.
At once proactive and pragmatic, Sofia honed in our efforts to ensure a return on every resource spent and successfully delivered SDG Factory, an intensive, 2-day multi-stakeholder workshop to innovate in the topics of waste, gender equality, impact measurement and partnerships combining multinationals with social entrepreneurs. Sofia is very reliable and always asks the right questions ahead of time.
