Pamela often partners with other Associates. Many of these work independently either as Freelance Consultants or have their own Business.
Recently Pamela has been doing a lot of work with Helen Westendorp and the Creative team Team at TreeHouse. Their speciality is thinking differently. Pam has worked with Helen on a number of contracts involving management training and people skills development. She has been involved in a year long coaching programme of middle managers using a new approached called Contribution. This is the extra over and above performance management.
Here is Helen’s USP – Everyone’s brain naturally forms neural pathways or ‘mental ruts’ – but if you apply stimulus to the brain it forms new pathways, helping you to think differently.
Treehouse helps you learn to ‘think differently’. Whether you’re looking for that next ‘big idea’, trying to improve staff motivation or need a strategy to improve profit, our innovative programmes provide that stimulus in an inspiring, fun, deliberate and effective way. It works for everyone in any field. We have seen proof of this time and again in businesses as diverse as Twinings and the Ministry of Defence.
If you are interested in learning more about Treehouse and their unique USP then Pamela would be happy to talk to you about it.

Roy has worked with Pamela on a number of projects including Hewlett Packard and Marks & Spencer change programmes.
Having led a highly successful career in the Arts (twice nominated for the Perrier Award, winner of 2 Fringe Firsts, Time Out Performer of the Year 1989, presenter of the Royal Television Society Best Documentary Award 1990), Roy began working in the field of management consultancy when approached by organisations who recognised that their training needed to be more relevant and engaging for their target audience. In conjunction with specialist management consultants and clients he writes and designs original theatre, video based and e:learning development programmes for major organisations – most notably BT Openreach where he project managed a two year diversity programme for 30,000 staff and trained 250 in-house facilitators to deliver training throughout the organisation.
Roy is an advocate of poetry and the spoken word and currently acts as the company secretary for Brainfruit, a charity that works with marginalised groups to encourage an appreciation of literature. www.brainfruit.org.uk He is due to perform in a new show for the Brighton Festival called The Poetry Army http://brightonfestival.org/event/347/the_poetry_army/ and in the Autumn will be touring Forbidden Fruit – a spoken word show – to Arts Centres in the UK.
Project design and facilitator skills are Roy’s primary skills. His ability to understand a brief, extract the key objectives and tailor learning objectives that will ensure cost effective delivery have been greatly appreciated by his clients. Roy’s 17 year public and private sector expertise, working with over 300 different companies and organisations, means that he can draw on countless examples of different approaches and create a bespoke learning experience. Roy’s ear for capturing the everyday dialogue of an organisation and feeding this back via video and theatre is a great asset – and when integrated into a learning platform, organisations can reflect on what currently motivates their teams; and explore ways to develop the talent they are fostering.
