Presentation Summaries

High Performance Management: Getting Results through Others

Do you feel like you have to repeat yourself over and over before something gets done? Do you ever think “I don’t think anyone cares about this business except me?” Do you find yourself going behind your staff doing things they “should” be doing? If you said yes to those questions, then you need to attend “How to Get Results through Others” with Kelly Berry and Pamela MacElree. In this session, they will teach you how to build trust, set expectations and give feedback that gets results. Whether you’re considering making your first hire, or already have a team, you will learn what it takes to create an accountable and productive culture.

A general understanding between being a manager and being a taskmaster
A shift in work values as you move from the role of contributor to manager
The importance of role clarity for everyone in the organization (clarity)
The role that trust plays in management (trust)
How to give effective feedback and how important that is as a manager (feedback)

Raising a Million

The impact that philanthropy can have is vast. From fundraising to volunteering, advocacy plays a great role that is often minimized. Much like being an entrepreneur we aren’t in a silo when it comes to philanthropic endeavors. When we join forces together, even in support of different causes and organizations we can make a large impact.

Personal Information

Pamela began her career in the fitness industry training clients in-home and at local parks while working a 9-5 corporate position. After writing a business plan for a friend that wanted to open a gym but eventually ended up abandoning the idea, Pamela decided to follow through with it instead. This led to her opening the 19th Crossfit affiliate in the nation and becoming the first ever coaching client of Fitness Revolution in 2006. Pamela eventually rebranded her gym and has grown it over the last decade and was inspired to begin coaching, herself, in hopes of leading others to success.

Pamela earned her M.S. in Injury Prevention and Sports Performance from California University of Pennsylvania. She is the co-founder and owner of Urban Athlete, a 13-year old fitness facility which has earned a handful of local awards and helped over 700 clients reach their goals. Pamela also has a passion for philanthropy and serves as the Director of Revolution For A Cause. She is also on the board of directors for Bolus and Barbells and the Eastern PA chapter of the JDRF.

Pamela has a love for all things gardening and wine and would probably opt to be a sommelier in her next life. She enjoys photography and travel, especially when combined. Her greatest happiness, however, comes from teaching her son how to cook and sharing daily stories with her husband, Mike.
