Our recent interview with Pamela…

Pamela, since your keynote will be held on Cinco de Mayo, RIISE wants to know what your favorite Mexican dish is.  “Sweet Fried Plantains served with Sour Cream and Queso Fresco on the side for dipping only at Pequeña on S. Portland in Brooklyn.” 

What does Torch in Torch Enterprises represent?  “Torch stands for Passing the Torch from one generation to the next to build legacy wealth in our communities.”

Pamela, you are busy on the speaking circuit. Who are some of the folks you’ve addressed?   “I have been blessed to speak at the United Negro College Fund’s Annual Gala, The National Council of Negro Women, Mocha Mom’s Regional Conference, National 100 Black Men’s Conferences, NAACP Wells Fargo Event, Bil Winston’s Economic Development Summit to name a few.”

People are always asking when you will be back. Tell us, what makes this network of families of color and independent schools an important one for you to address?  “Teamwork makes the dreams work, without a collaborative effort parents can become overwhelmed with all the choices and key decisions they have to make at a very crucial time in their child’s life, RIISE makes this uncharted territory more familiar and works to provide resources so that future generations have the benefit created by those who came before them.”  

More on Pamela…Pamela is a requested speaker both nationally and internationally, lecturing and advising businesses and leaders with her research and work in places such as Korea, China, Japan, Egypt, Nigeria, Ghana, and Jamaica.
