Pam Moore – BA (Hons), MBA
Strategic Change and Leadership Specialist
Pam Moore brings her special brand of creativity to helping companies achieve competitive edge through creating bespoke people strategies and cultivating the leaders who can turn them to competitive advantage.
A number of prestigious clients have enjoyed her style and insight over the past 15 years that she has consulted in both the private and NGO sectors. Companies that have engaged with her range from corporate companies such as Standard Bank Wealth and Investment, Santam, Sanlam, Woolworths and Parmalat to private brands, Sissy Boy and NGO’s WWF-SA and Desmond Tutu Peace Centre.
Santam Ltd is one company that benefited from her unique approach. They won Deloittes ‘Best Company to Work For’ in the large category in 2009. Pam worked on the design of their HR strategy, Leadership Strategy and EVP during the two year period leading up to this accolade.
Pam’s insights and ideas are based on the latest thinking in the field blended with many years’ experience in the corporate sector, mostly in blue chip companies. These include SABMiller, Syfrets and Tiger Brands.
Pam’s corporate career began at a time when women were just beginning to break boundaries. She was in the first group of women to train as Liquidators in Cape Town, she was one of only three women managers at SABMiller’s Newlands Brewery and the only woman executive in Tiger Brands edible oils division. The overt and subtle obstacles to success that she encountered led to a passionate interest in women’s advancement and the very real challenges they still face in traditional workplaces.
At the climax of her corporate career, as an executive in a key business division of Tiger Brands she brought her creative/innovative flair to bear when she crafted a unique portfolio combining HR with strategic planning, new business development and capital investment analysis.
An MBA from University of Cape Town helped her enormously to develop her own strategic skills and to understand what is important in innovative corporate cultures. She has lectured on an MBA programme and since 2003 has mentored groups for the ‘Planning New Ventures’ elective run by Dr Mike Herrington.
Retaining talented people, equipping leaders with the capabilities to provide sound direction, put strategy into action and to foster a supportive culture where diverse talent is developed, mentored and nurtured, these are the perennial people issues that confront businesses. Pam is at her best in finding people solutions that give her clients competitive edge.
Originally from London, Pam lives in Cape Town. To nurture her own creativity Pam paints, does ceramics, plays with her German Shepherds and stomps around the gym.
