Pamela’s Credentials


telstra logo reduced - 1

I have completed a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of NSW’s AGSM and Kaplan Business School with scholarships from the AGSM alumni society and the Australian Scholarship Foundation.

I am recognised as a Certified Practicing Fundraiser (CFRE) and a Fellow of the Fundraising Institute of Australia.

I was awarded as a Telstra Businesswoman of the Year for my work with Plan International and the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006.

I have held senior roles with major commercial and not-for-profit organisations helping to clarify strategies, grow revenue and build long term relationship. These include Oxfam Australia, Plan International, Bush Heritage and Zoos Victoria. I’ve served on the boards of Trust for Nature Victoria, Interact Australia and BirdLife Australia. I’m currently a volunteer board member with Seddon Community Bank and Hobsons Bay Community Fund.

In those roles I have created numerous strategic plans, marketing and fundraising strategies and helped Australian non-profit organisations raise millions of dollars. I am a regular speaker and currently writing a book to help Australian fundraisers raise more money.

To achieve my personal development goals I am extremely fortunate to have received scholarships from the AGSM Alumni to complete my Graduate Diploma; Stanford University and the Dyson Bequest to study Social Entrepreneurship at Stanford University, California. I completed a Master of Business Administration with Kaplan Business School thanks to a scholarship from the Australian Scholarships Foundation.

In 2018, I successfully completed my MBA after receiving a scholarship from the Australian Scholarships Foundation to complete my MBA.

I am eternally grateful to everyone who has supported me thus far.
