Pamela Benson Owens has been an entrepreneur for over 20+ years and in January of 2018 was presented with a unique opportunity to continue work that is meaningful to her. Pam joined force with FB Consulting and now serves as the Vice President for Business Development.
For many years Pam has toured the U.S. delivering customized presentations, interactive trainings and leadership programs focused on the importance of nonprofit best practices, intentional leadership, proactive HR practices and culture building, teaming, board governance and effectiveness, fund development, curriculum design, executive coaching, conflict resolution and strategic planning in both the nonprofit and for profit arenas.
In addition, she is a sought after human resources consultant leading the charge when it comes to the intricacies of changing organizational culture, managing expectations of non-profit organizations, board members/volunteers, and leveraging the most out of staff. Pam is often asked to come into organizations of transition in an interim capacity to create staffing infrastructure, stabilization and establish processes and procedures.
Known for her no-nonsense communication style and the ability to navigate difficult conversations, her commitment to challenging the construct and narrative of how leaders select to lead, takes organizations from good to transformational.
Pam holds an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University in Journalism and a Master’s degree in Human Services with a concentration in Conflict Resolution and Mediation from St. Edward’s University. Pam has a certification in Diversity Education and has also completed course work toward a theological degree.
She leverages the combination of her variety of experiences, education and teachings to create critical “teachable moments” that quickly translate and become abundantly useful in both professional and personal settings.
She has been fortunate to be a guest lecturer and adjunct professor at some of the most prestigious institutions and finds value in the leader as learner approach. Pam is the author of Percolations: Reflect, Recharge, Reign and a contributor to We Walk by Faith and Not By Sight: Women of Faith in the Marketplace, Volume 1. In November, Pam completed another collaborative book project entitled, In Her Shoes: From Perfectionism to Acceptance. Pam resides in Austin, Texas and is mother to two amazing kids Preston (7) and Allyson (10) and is wife to a fabulously supportive husband, Arlyn.
