POOLaide Webinar: Business Lessons from Outside Aquatics

Business Lessons from Outside of Aquatics

Pam Wright
March 19, 2021

I love aquatics, BUT! Sometimes our perspective is too small. I’ve brought together two professionals from outside of recreation/aquatics to serve as inspiration. It's important to grow outside your comfort zone.  

Key themes

  • Forget about perfection (80/20 Rule)
  • Small changes make all of the difference
  • Roll with the punches
  • Try different stuff 

Forget About Perfect; Small Improvements Make All The Difference

Pam Wright has worked for Adobe for 15 years in four countries (Canada, USA, Australia, and the UK), across the functions of Finance, Operations, and Business Strategy. Currently based in London UK with her Canadian husband, she loves travelling, cooking, reading books, and working on cool stuff with smart people. Her father passed away unexpectedly when she was 13, and since then it's been Pam's mission to live each day so that she can look back every night and say that she is proud of what she accomplished and how she treated others.

All 2021 POOLaide Webinars are available on our YouTube Channel.
