Pam Borton was the keynote speaker at Medtronic’s signature event for our Women in Science and Engineering employee group. Pam brought positive energy and was extremely effective in engaging our large group. The stories she shared were well received, and she did a great job illustrating ways to project strength and confidence as a leader (our theme for the event). Pam had a disarming style that “pulled” a lot of personal participation from the group. Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback, I would highly recommend Pam as a speaker.
