Meet the Surefoot team
Since 2007, after a long career in the commercial world, Pamela has returned to a long-cherished ambition, working to promote sustainable society. A successful and experienced leader of projects, programmes, and departments, skilled in building relationships to create groups from disparate partners to deliver solutions and effect change, she now works with community, public sector, and commercial organisations to help bring about change using values-based methods.
After receiving a Social Innovation Award from the Melting Pot in Edinburgh, and supported by the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, set up The Surefoot Effect, CIC, to provide a hub for practitioners working with values-based change. Current work through Surefoot includes design and facilitation of workshops and action learning programmes, coaching and mentoring, and training of facilitators.
Climate friendly action in everyday life
"I keep and wear my clothes for a long time and go to second hand shops by preference when I need clothing. I try very hard to only buy new clothes when I have to (I do buy new underwear and socks :D). I have used a renewable energy provider for quite some time. When Surefoot travels to Switzerland to do facilitator training we take the train for 2 days each way – amazing scenery and we can stop in Paris for lunch at an amazing vegan raw food restaurant. I eat a vegetarian and dairy free diet, and I am enjoying learning to grow my own vegetables. My favourite holiday spots are in Scotland."
