Feedback from previous assignments

Pam and her team were engaged by the Procurement Services Branch (PSB) of UNFPA to carry out an in-depth analysis of the transport element of UNFPA supply chain and to recommend a course of action for PSB to improve and better manage the transport services of goods procured on behalf of the clients.

Through a thorough and comprehensive period of analytics and interviews with internal and external stakeholders, the team were able to verify accurately and comprehensively articulate the core of the issues, and on this basis were able to provide a detailed report providing guidelines for the needs of PSB in order to achieve the desired outcome.

In working with Pam and her team, not only did they employ the highest degree of professionalism, but they did so in a personable and pragmatic way, demonstrating very deep knowledge and experience in the specific field.

Throughout the project, the team continued on an on-going basis to “check in” with the project team at UNFPA to ensure that they were not digressing from the scope of the project.

The team provided a report containing clear recommendations for the process of transitioning from the current state to the desired state in a practical and achievable manner, focusing on the capabilities and how these should be built upon, enhanced and established before moving on to the next steps.

As we develop our capabilities further, I hope that we will again be able to enjoy the extensive knowledge and experience of Pam and her team

Pam was recommended to us by a trusted colleague in Oxfam as a vital source of up to date domain knowledge in the target regions of our humanitarian venture. She has been instrumental to Isis Innovation Ltd and its industrial Partners in evaluating the public good that our solar cooker and waste fuelled energy projects can bring to dislocated communities in Africa and other parts of the disadvantaged world. Pam’s advice on design improvements and deployment practices convinced us of the practical benefits of our venture. We expect to rely further on Pam’s experiences as an articulate end-user and on-the-ground facilitator with her extensive regional contacts, as our venture develops

Dytecna was introduced to Pam during our work with ISIS Innovation to evolve a solar oven product. Her knowledge of the user’s needs and environment, particularly her determination to make a lasting positive difference to the lives of those unfortunate enough to need help, was apparent from the very outset. What started out as a concept quickly became a product once we gained knowledge from Pam on how people managed their lives. Even to the extent where understanding cultural attitudes changed our design and manufacture to ensure a product wholly suitable to the people and their environment. We fully intend to use her extensive knowledge and contacts network further in the completion of field trials due later this year. Her full grasp of both local and wider regional situations and scenarios is helping Dytecna and its partners shape its future product portfolio and we hope to continue our working relationship as these ventures develop
