"Pam's calm confident approach, particularly with regard to external relations (forums, focus groups, brokering relationships with partners etc) has been hugely beneficial to the AMA and to the development of the knowledge hub [CultureHive]." Julie Aldridge, Executive Director Arts Marketing Association
"Over six months, Pam worked with us to deliver a programme of training and practical support for Museums Norfolk. Training sessions in Audience Development Planning and Marketing Essentials were highly rated and content was skillfully tailored to the needs of small museums with limited resources. Museums in particular benefitted from Pam’s considerable knowledge and expertise in one to one advice sessions to help inform and develop their projects, which were funded through our small grants awards programme”. Steph Potts, Development Manager Museums Norfolk
