17th Annual Power of the Purse Event to Feature Former Undercover Police Officer & Nonverbal Communication Expert Pamela Barnum

Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay’s primary fundraising event will take place on September 15, 2022


August 3, 2022 – You have 50 milliseconds to make an impression with people who already have their guard up. Trust is at an all-time low, and people are looking for a reason to say no. On Thursday, September 15, 2022, former undercover police officer and federal prosecutor Pamela Barnum will share her insight into nonverbal communication and trust, to turn a “no” into a “yes.”

At the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay’s 17th annual Power of the Purse luncheon, Barnum will share insights from her decades of experience, including her unique background of working deep undercover in the drug enforcement section, followed by a rewarding legal career. Barnum will offer real-world strategies to help our audience crack the code on trust, using proven, field-tested techniques.

Building on her experience in the criminal justice system, Barnum studied corporate negotiations in graduate school and now shares her experience, research, and expertise with candor, energy, and humor, blending actionable strategies with memorable stories.

The Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay is grateful to have Pamela Barnum speaking at the Power of the Purse, the primary fundraising event for the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay. The event on September 15 includes a popular silent auction of high-end purses and an engaging program. All members of the community are encouraged to attend to learn more about the Women’s Fund mission of empowering women and inspiring girls in Northeast Wisconsin.

Doors for Power of the Purse at the KI Convention Center will open at 10:00 a.m. for networking, to view the silent auction, and to purchase raffle tickets.
