Key Note Speaker

Pam Featherstone, ActionCOACH

Pam Featherstone is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm. Not only has she been running successful businesses since she was 17, but her list of activities outside of work is huge.

She is a world-renowned, multi award-winning, licensed business coach, entrepreneur, global trainer, speaker and published author.  She has worked with hundreds of business owners to develop and grow their businesses whilst creating the lifestyle they want. Pam has worked with businesses at every level including individual owner operators, privately owned, multi-million pound businesses and blue chip companies. She has coached business owners and executives in 69 countries in the past 5 years. Pam qualified with the iabct and trained with the world number 1 executive coach and author, Marshall Goldsmith

Pam is the fastest growing individual coach in ActionCOACH, the world’s number one business coaching firm, after she grew her business from £0 to £1 million in less than 3 years.  This meant she was also the first Coach to attain a 7 figure coaching business in ActionCOACH UK.

She was the first coach in the UK to win the Global Coach of the Year award in 2015 at which point ActionCOACH founder Brad Sugars described her as the Roger Bannister of the ActionCOACH community. In 2016, she received another global award, the Global Coach of the Year award for Planning and Strategy.  

Pam also believes in giving back to the community and last year raised over 1 million for local charities and runs workshops, Coaching for a Cause, to help fundraisers and charities, as well as being a huge supporter of the international B1G1 giving project.

However, Pam has learned the hard way that establishing and scaling up a company whilst achieving a work/life balance takes self-discipline as well as great business education, focus, planning and a strategic approach. When she first started her business, she had no business experience or education and worked incredibly long hours. This lack of business resource and systems resulted in her spending less quality time with her son than she would have liked. This later fuelled her drive to ensure other business owners get to achieve the lifestyle they started their business to have.

Pam understands the trials and tribulations of owning your own business, and has a passion for sharing her knowledge, experience and high energy with others to achieve their goals. Coaching for Pam is both a huge privilege and responsibility and is proud of the community of like-minded, successful business owners which has been created. Through strategic planning, consistency and accountability, Pam coaches business owners to build a stable, sustainable business that can work without them whilst growing profits, improving work/life balance and creating high performance teams to take the business forward. With 36 years of business experience, Pam brings a wealth of wisdom and expertise.

She cares deeply about inspiring other business owners to achieve their personal and business goals and is committed to motivating them to create the life they want. Add to all of this, Pam’s unbridled enthusiasm and fun approach to life.
