IdeaShape Clients Say…

~ Jon Miller, CEO of Engagio & Co-Founder of Marketo
Pam not only did a great job helping us find even better ways to work together, but she also took the time to understand our business well enough to participate in the strategy and product discussions. It was great to find someone who was able to bring to the table business-savvy, emotional intelligence, and a rock-solid understanding of how to build effective teams. I recommend Pam and we will work with her again.
~ Jon Miller, CEO of Engagio & Co-Founder of Marketo
~ Patrick Crane, Former CMO of LinkedIn
Our marketing team has grown significantly and quickly, so we hired Pam to conduct a working-across-personalities program for my whole group. Pam approached the whole project with a consultative, curious and dedicated style that made us feel good right from the start. She interfaced directly with my team throughout the process, got some great insights we didn’t know about each other, and made us all think differently about each other. Her delivery is fun and high energy, highly interactive, and deeply insightful.
~ Patrick Crane, Former CMO of LinkedIn
~ Kathleen Kaa, Senior Director of Genentech/Roche
Pam provides a structured approach to achieving short and long-term meeting objectives. She works with team members before, during, and after meetings to carefully plan success. Pam’s facilitation is very natural. Her energy is consistently high, and she helps bring conversations to their maximum potential. I enjoy working with Pam and highly recommend her to those looking to increase the value and effectiveness of their meetings.
~ Kathleen Kaa, Senior Director of Genentech/Roche
~ Bobbie LaPorte, Former CMO & General Manager at GE Healthcare
I asked Pam to host a program for the ‘When She Speaks’ Women in Leadership series in San Francisco. She was the consummate professional from start to finish: developing the approach for the topic, recruiting expert panelists, and proving to be flexible and creative as she flawlessly led the program discussion. She was an absolute delight to work with and received great feedback from the attendees.”
