Who created EQ in a Box©?
EQ in a Box© was designed by Pam Tudin, Clinical Psychologist and Sally Fraser-Mackenzie Occupational Therapist. Both passionate about children and their growth, they recognized the importance of helping parents to find ways develop to their children's EQ without always having to resort to the help of professionals. The EQ in a Box was designed by Sally and Pam on the premise that no-one knows a child as well as a parent does.
Pam Tudin is a Clinical Psychologist and Organisational Leadership Development Consultant. Emerging from her corporate work, Pam has found that today's best leaders were given Emotional Intelligence in childhood. This created a passion in Pam to set up a consultancy that focuses exclusively on building EQ skills in children of all ages. Directed by Pam, HappyKidsNow provides youth with real life skills (conflict management, assertiveness training , stress management etc.) Her fundamental belief that all children are capable of going from 'good to great', inspires her work. An ardent fan of Facebook, Pam is currently writing a refreshing take on the Facebook frenzy. In her book she gives parents the confidence to let their kids enjoy and get the best out of Facebook. She gives frequent talks both locally and internationally, motivating parents by the take home tools she offers to manage the day to day challenges that come with childhood and adolescence. In between changing nappies and making school lunches, Pam is completing her Doctorate. She lives in Knysna with her husband, two relentless but wonderful boys and two mad cats.
