Bio
A design thinker by profession, farmer by vocation, and philanthropist by passion, Pam brings curiosity and creative verve to everything she does – whether leading team retreats for IDEO.org, using improv to help Mini Cooper crystallize its offer, facilitating Design Labs at Clinton Global Initiative, or hosting Thought Leader salons with the likes of Elon Musk and Alice Waters. The common thread? A passion for architecting creative experiences and leading meaningful conversations to inspire insights, ideas, action, and impact. Trained as a designer, Pam is a creative strategist with a sweet spot for helping start-ups define their mission, offer and brand in truly disruptive ways. She also consults with big brands looking to get their creative mojo back. Pam earned her stripes in advertising, most recently at Goodby Silverstein where she oversaw brand strategy for Nike, Porsche, SBC and Unilever. In 2000, Pam founded Curious where she continues to push brands to be bigger, bolder, and better. Her toolbox includes: Innovation Workshops,Leadership Retreats, Design Labs, and Improv-Based Consumer Studies. In 2003 Pam set out to grow half the food she and her husband eat. Fast forward a decade and she’s well beyond that goal with her one-acre organic farm. She also teaches organic farming and is Farm Correspondent for Edible Magazine. Pam co-directs her family foundation through which she and her husband place big bets on and advise a handful of organizations making radical strides in public education in the U.S. and abroad.
