I’m Pamela Sutton-Legaud and I’m loving my life here in Melbourne, Australia. After working with international advertising agencies for many years, I moved to the non-profit sector where I’ve worked for almost 20 years.
I give seminars on unleashing your potential, building amazing fundraising strategies and growing your organisation to deliver sustainable revenue.
If your organisation or cause requires assistance with fundraising, or you are a donor who would like assistance finding the right cause to support, please do contact me and I will be delighted to help you.

I advise a number of non-profit organisations. Until early 2015, I was Executive Director of Zoos Victoria Foundation, a role I was delighted to take up in January 2010 after working in the non-profit sector with Plan International, Oxfam Australia and Bush Heritage Australia.
Australia has been very good to me and for me! Since moving here from England I found my passion for raising awareness and funds for some of the world’s poorest children as well as the most vulnerable and threatened animal species. This led to me being recognised in 2006 as a Telstra Businesswoman of the Year for Community and Government in Victoria as well as receiving the AGSM Alumni community scholarship to attend the prestigious Australian Graduate School of Management.
Prior to this I worked for over 15 years in the international advertising sector with Leo Burnett, Lintas and Ogilvy & Mather Direct in account service in London and in Melbourne. Advertising and direct marketing are my first loves and I still work in marketing and now fundraising roles in the non-profit sector.
I am recognised as a Certified Practicing Fundraiser with CFRE International. I have held a number of board positions with Trust for Nature, Family Planning Victoria, Connecting Home and INTERACT.
I am a keen photographer, part time student and full time social entrepreneur always looking for new ways to help build long term financial sustainability for non-profit organisations. I am a regular public speaker for universities, other non-profits and corporations.

I hold strong views on some things in particular the need for action to halt the sad decline in the numbers and habitat of our beautiful animals and plants and our need to protect the planet.
