Berry believes that every one of us has been given a unique purpose and it is our obligation to find it and use it to improve first our own self and then for those we live and work with.ver since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Introducing Keynote Speaker: Pam Green

We are honored to announce that PAM GREEN will be presenting "Think Like an Executive - Recognize and Employ the Strategic Mindset" as a Keynote Speaker for the Ohio HR Conference scheduled for September 20-22, 2023. 

We're thrilled to welcome Pam back to Ohio! 

Prior to Green's executive coaching and consulting career, she was an executive leader for the world's largest HR association. During that time, she became a fierce advocate for the HR profession and ensured the voice of hundreds of thousands of global HR leaders was heard and respected around the table. It was also during this time she realized that not all c-suite tables and experiences are the same—she now had an opportunity to help CEOs and their talented suitemates achieve more than individual excellence, but to gain competitive advantage. 

Today, Green works with leaders aspiring to executive leadership, and those in executive ranks who've come to terms with this one crucial acknowledgment: what got you here won't keep you here. Because economies shift, customer expectations shift, and talent competition is fierce, a new playbook is in order, and she has that playbook for the executive team willing to listen, willing to shift their thinking, and willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work.
