Sonja Piontek is the founder and CEO of Sonnenkind which helps create unforgettable travel experiences for leading international brands and high-networth clients.
She was also the keynote speaker for the 2018 Google Global SMB Growth Summit!
Sonja’s career allows her to travel extensively across the world – for example, taking clients on an off-road drive through New Zealand and, recently, going on a journey to Mongolia with 50 VIP clients from Cycle & Carriage!
A native of Munich, Germany, Sonja has lived in six countries. Five years ago, she left a corporate job at BMW Asia to stay in Singapore because she loved its entrepreneurial spirit and surprisingly, its hot weather, too!
As a frequent traveller, Sonja’s must-bring Apple items are her MacBook and iPhone X. “No matter where in the world you are and what project you work on, being able to tell your partner how much he means to you is the most important thing!” Aww.
“It’s always nice to wear something that reminds you of a great trip,” shares Sonja, who enjoys shopping while on her travels. Her top tip? “I buy so many things from Mongolia every time I go – they have the best cashmere in the world!”
