Pam Chambers is known as Hawaii’s Presentation Coach. Since 1985, she has helped thousands of people become better communicators — whether they speak to one person, to small groups, or to large audiences. While growing up, Pam says she used to be “the shyest girl in the world,” and avoided standing out in any way. But years later, she was propelled into the limelight when she accepted a position as sales manager for a seminar company in San Francisco.  She then put herself through the challenging and rewarding process of becoming a public speaker. And now she teaches others to speak out.

Chambers helps a wide array of clients — moving men, bodyguards, front-line retailers, entertainers, CPAs, attorneys, bankers, CEOs, and people from any industry you can name — even a shy ten-year-old boy.  You can request a variety of in-house training programs, presentation skills classes open to the public, one-on-one coaching, and keynote speeches.

Pam is the author of Speak for YourselfStand & Deliver, and Life is a Presentation. Her latest book, Public Speaking Made Easy, made the bestseller list in Hawaii. She was named by Honolulu Magazine as one of Hawaii’s 10 Most Admired Women. Her style is interactive, entertaining, and practical, and she knows how to bring out the best in her audiences. Pam Chambers is often praised for her “wise and cheerful lessons” that are also practical and important.
