Quickly added in hair and beauty, after she discovered these had higher margins 18 years later, was owner and managing director of four salons in London with 48 staff and annual turnover of more than £1m

Pamela has her own story to tell when working with Pamela, she shares good times and bad, how she managed to rise above all the stress and negativity and explains in her own words potholes that she fell through and how through support, focus, development and personal growth she managed to stay strong and conquer these hiccups as she calls them, Pamela continues to grow successful businesses today. A powerful story to hear.
