"In an inspiring and dynamic presentation, Pam covered the surging ESG movement and growing expectations around ESG, social impact, and sustainability.
Her insights gave members from all corners of the accounting profession a chance to explore external frameworks, regulatory action, and client assessments, as well as ways to assess, measure, and benchmark sustainability.
Pam encouraged participants to take a holistic view of their firms’ social impact and sustainability, and members indicated that her presentation helped them gain the perspective they need to truly embrace ESG as a business opportunity for the profession.

"As Conference Chair, Pam made a significant contribution in helping us deliver a first-class experience.She brought a huge amount of deep thinking, wisdom, expertise, and professionalism to the whole day. She did everything with such grace. Pam is an absolute pleasure to work with, and it was a privilege, as always, to know and work with her.
Pam delivered her keynote with sensitivity to our members’ requirements and with great aplomb. The feedback we received on the day was excellent and, without exception, everyone has mentioned her inspirational keynote as a key contribution to the success of the day!
We absolutely loved the relaxed manner in which Pam spoke to everyone and the open and honest way in which the topics were dealt with. We are so appreciative that Pam gave up her valuable time so freely to make our conference such a success.
Tim Morris, CEO, BKR International
Pamela’s presentation on “What is ESG and Why Your Firm Should Care” really brought the message home to our members that non-financial reporting is not just an optional extra. She also chaired our international panel on the “ESG in Action – Practical Key Takeaways” with great insight, clearly drawing out the business case for ESG.
She demonstrated why clients care about their sustainable credentials and are willing to pay what is required to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. As clients become more aware of the value of social responsibility to their business, and indeed the threats to business if they ignore it, they want to be able to show their Environmental, Social, and Governance values.
I would certainly recommend that any professional provider serious about their future use Pamela’s expertise to understand how ESG can assist them. They will learn how to use social responsibility and sustainability to improve their bottom line and save the world too!

She obviously has a deep understanding of the issues, but she also delivers her presentation with a deep understanding of how to influence, inform and ignite her audience."
