Read this if your audience wants to achieve big results

Top leadership audiences are likely used to hearing the standard pitch about what a keynote session will bring: inspiration. Insights. Actionable takeaways. New networking opportunities. These are all good qualities for a keynote … great, even.

However, to make an event a transformational experience—one that association executives and top leaders talk about, budget for, and recommend to colleagues—you need a keynote speaker that turns conventional wisdom on its side to change the way audiences think, feel, and act. Your event needs a keynote speaker that not only inspires leaders in the moment and shares insights, but also sheds new light on the path toward significant, visionary next steps … and has the experience and wit, to boot.

As a strategic growth advisor with 20+ years of experience enabling visionary executives to accelerate innovation, transformation, and business growth, Pam Harper is your keynoter.

Pam provides a bridge between the pragmatic information that serves leaders well and the additional intellectual savvy necessary to cement visionary legacies … legacies that have the potential to be in history books.

“Pam is a great story teller. Her ability to engage a
sophisticated audience such as ours in a story
of leadership transformation and growth was
highly impactful.
I especially appreciated her Q&A session to
help us get the most out of her keynote.”
