Pam Pretorius is a senior human excellence consultant and has worked with Schuitema Group for roughly fifteen years. She has designed and delivered dozens of culture interventions across a host of industries, ranging from manufacturing and mining to banking and IT. Pam is as comfortable donning safety boots and overalls in a factory environment as she is working with executive teams in their head offices.
Pam’s experience ranges from whole organisation culture change interventions to individual leadership coaching programs. She is able to draw on her almost thirty years of experience working in corporate, government, non-government and parastatal organisations on major transformation projects that involved aligning internal communications, human resources, learning and development with the rest of the operations. In addition, she spent ten years in the hospitality industry, managing a saltwater fly-fishing business with her husband.
Pam is able to bring all this experience to bear in her contributions to her clients as coach and trusted leadership advisor, helping clients maximise employee engagement. A strong program design competency, coupled with engaging and insightful facilitation skills, ensures Pam is able to design and deliver empowering training experiences to support leaders as they transform themselves and their business.
Pam’s work is driven by a deep understanding and practice of Care & Growth. By living each day with gratitude and trusting that the universe will serve our best interests when we are of service, Pam knows that this enables people to overcome their limitations and frustrations, irrespective of what stages they are at in their lives and what level they are in the business and help them to achieve their potential.
The key to Pam’s contribution to Schuitema is that she invests time and energy building strong, trusting relationships with her clients. Pam understand that a Schuitema consultant is a trusted advisor who will consistently be available to senior leaders as they battle with the complexity of senior roles in large organisations. The value she brings is demonstrate by the extent to which she has continued to work with her clients even as they have moved on in their careers, to different roles and organisations.
