Pamela Swensen re­cently joined the board of direc­tors of Clin­ics Can Help (CCH), an or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to bring­ing med­i­cal equip­ment and sup­plies to those in need. The non­profit ac­cepts gen­tly used and new durable med­i­cal equip­ment from in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies and makes it avail­able to pa­tients who may not other­wise be able to af­ford such ex­pen­sive equip­ment for their phys­i­cal recovery. Swensen is a pro­fes­sional golf in­dus­try ex­ec­u­tive, speaker, author and ex­pert in women’s golf, and is prin­ci­pal of PS Let’s Talk Golf, which she founded in 2017 in West Palm Beach, to help clients cul­ti­vate part­ner­ships and build re­la­tion­ships across di­verse busi­ness sec­tors through the sport and busi­ness of golf.

On the board

Why: Swensen en­joys be­ing able to lever­age her broad net­work within the golf world, to as­sist com­pa­nies, or­ga­ni­za­tions and the com­mu­nity.

Build a foun­da­tion: For 15 years Swensen led Ex­ec­u­tive Women’s Golf As­so­ci­a­tion, of­fer­ing women greater ex­po­sure to the in­dus­try. Swensen’s golf­ing ca­reer has been fo­cused on the goal of “rolling out the green car­pet to women for broader busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties and rev­enue,” she says. And her fo­cus on com­mu­nity outreach al­lows Swensen to uti­lize her pas­sion for golf to ben­e­fit a va­ri­ety of or­ga­ni­za­tions through events such as net­work­ing, golf demon­stra­tions, fundrais­ing tour­na­ments and more.

Be present: Suc­cess isn’t a solo en­deavor. Reach out and em­brace your team mem­bers, col­lab­o­rate and be sup­port­ive. Seek out op­por­tu­ni­ties to show­case your tal­ents and en­thu­si­asm.

Wis­dom: Golf is of­ten the ve­hi­cle to fos­ter con­nec­tions and de­velop busi­ness re­la­tion­ships. Peo­ple want to do busi­ness with peo­ple they know and trust. The in­tegrity and ethics that golf ex­poses par­al­lels real life.

Advice to young pro­fes­sion­als: Don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the power of hav­ing golf as a skill set on your re­sume. It’s a con­ver­sa­tion starter and can be a game changer.
