Pamela facilitated what turned out to be my favorite — and I’d say the best — leadership retreat of my 30+ year non-profit career. She brought wit and wisdom, and fun and focus, to a very diverse group of executives. We aligned around mission. We identified opportunities for growth and advancement. We dove deep on a few game changers. And we left energized to do more for our clients, and to do it better.
