“Pam Davidson was instrumental in the strategic amalgamation of the Maritime Heart Centre and the QEII Foundation. As a key contributor in the process, Pam provided thoughtful advice and helped us understand the cultural nuances of bringing these two organizations together. This has resulted in transformational change to heart health here at the QEII with over $5 million raised to date for new technologies and innovation. This exercise in change management is leading us to our next heart health challenge – creating the new Maritime Heart Centre, a vision that has been 40 years in the making.”
