“Sonya makes smart, bespoke pitches that demonstrate her deep knowledge of the media landscape, as well as her understanding that a story can be looked at and approached from multiple angles, depending on the outlet. She follows up in a respectful, open manner, and goes out of her way to deliver access and materials. Her presence at events generates confidence that things will run smoothly, and her years of professionalism and timely attention to queries make her one of the local PRs whose emails I will always open. I recommend her without hesitation.

“As a freelance editor in the competitive market of Canadian women’s magazines and websites, my job is to get the most unique articles possible. Ki has a way of ensuring I meet these high editorial standards… I get the sense that Ki is as invested in my articles as I am, striving as they do for the best possible outcome. To me, this is the true estimation of a consummate PR professional: It’s not so much what you do, or even how you do it – it’s why you do it.”
– Beth Thompson, Editor, Best Health Magazine
“We have been featured in the USA Today, ABC News, CBC Radio, CityTV, and scores of other national and local print and broadcast outlets. It is literally beyond tracking at this stage. I will candidly say that GoVoluntouring is a success, due in no small way, to the vital contributions and guidance we received from Ki Communications. As someone that has had to manage teams of consultants in the past, I can say that by a country mile, their honesty, commitment and personal touch is what separates Ki from anyone else I have used. Working with another firm is not even a consideration, and I strongly suggest you do yourself a favour, and at the very least, begin the dialogue in getting to know their team.”
– Aaron Smith, Founder and CEO of GoVoluntouring
“I have worked with Sonya Hwang for several years now, and I have nothing but the highest praise for the work she does. She truly understands the needs of those of us who work in the media, and in my experience, never fails to come through with what we require, whether it be arranging an interview, providing background information or supplying photographs to support a story. She is also unfailingly pleasant to work with, which never hurts, and always available to answer questions, make connections and provide solutions.

“Always looking out for new effective tools, Ki Communications’ tried and true commitment to finding the story is what puts Ki Communications and their clients ahead of the competition. Having specialized in travel and tourism PR for over 15 years, Ki Communications is skilled in taking the story well beyond the travel pages into the mainstream consumer and lifestyle mediums. I would highly recommend Sonya and Ki Communications to anyone looking for dedicated PR support to expand their marketing reach in a cost effective manner.”
