St Ralph Sherwin CMAT Sonny’s digital skills are on another level. He was quickly able to draw up an appropriate and comprehensive digital strategy and inspire staff, pupils and Trust leaders to believe in it and work to it.
SRSCMAT Our Trust relationship with Sonny Sharma started in the summer 2020. The first lockdown was easing and as a 25 school Trust we had realised how poor our IT/digital provision was across our Trust. We needed to bring someone in who could overhaul what we were doing and help create a vision for digital learning in our Trust. Sonny has made that difference.
St John Houghton Amazing Teams Session Sonny! On Sunday, we had never delivered a live lesson. Today we will pass 250+ lessons this week. Staff have been amazing!
We both had a great day, I think Mark took a lot away from it, as did I. I would like to think we will use you again many times, you have proved invaluable in helping me make sure we are going down the right track now after taking some bad advice at the beginning. I will sit down with my team and work out a strategy to get people in the cloud first and gently steer people from the network, initially with G Drive and the cloud stream. Once again thanks, and I would love you to come and speak
Fieri Leadership A huge thank you for all of the incredible work and effort you have done for Fieri this year. Whilst the last 10 months has been a huge rollercoaster, the pause actually gave us an opportunity to rethink and reshape how we do things at Fieri.

We feel so privileged to be working with you.
