“Pam Styles has been a treasured colleague of mine for several decades.  She is the consummate strategist and investor relations professional, both a traditionalist and innovator at the same time.  She is conservative in approach while innovating exciting new solutions for her clients’ communication challenges. We have enjoyed a close collaboration over the years, beginning when I was editor of the NIRI IR Update and Pam was a leading commentator on trends and developments affecting the IR profession.  Since then, I have looked forward to the new things that we do together on behalf of our clients.  And Pam always delivers – in strategic steps that are amazing.  Thank you, Pam, for many years of happy collaboration!”

Hank Boerner Chairman Governance & Accountability Institute, Inc.

“I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Pamela Styles from Next Level Investor Relations, as well as present with her. She is an excellent communicator and an expert in her field. She provided excellent guidance and counsel at a time when I needed an informed view of the intersection between sustainability and the then-emerging ESG landscape. She has extensive knowledge of the relevance of sustainability to business that helps companies connect the dots as they build their strategies for the future.”

Sandra M. Nessing Managing Director Corporate Sustainability American Electric Power

“It has been a pleasure getting to know Pam Styles over the years and working with her on various sustainability / ESG client engagements, thought leadership pieces, training and events.  I’ve always been impressed by the quality of her work, her level of knowledge in both the IR field and her ability to process new information into solid strategic advice.  She should be at the top of your list when looking for help for your company on ESG issues.  I consider her not only a colleague, but as part of the G&A family and I look forward to continuing our journey together.”

Louis D. Coppola Co-Founder & Executive Vice President Governance & Accountability Institute, Inc.

“I’ve collaborated with Pam Styles at Next Level Investor Relations on writing assignments and have consulted with her on behalf of clients. Not only is Pam an expert in her field, but she is terrific to work with – she knows how to translate environmental and sustainability matters into language that makes sense not only to investor relations officers, but also to boards of directors. Once understood, she can guide a company as it builds its own unique E&S response.”

Denise Kuprionis President The Governance Solutions Group, LLC (GSG)
