Highly recommend Pattie.

Pattie spoke at our Healthcare Administrative Professional's Conference and did a great job! The attendees loved her talk on knowing your strengths. She got the attendees moving and working in small groups which helped with networking too! Highly recommend Pattie and she was great to work with in planning as well - organized and well prepared to talk to our group.

Pattie is an exceptional public speaker.

Pattie is an exceptional public speaker capable of engaging her audience and delivering her message in an interactive manner. As a breakout speaker at the 2017 Project Management Institute of San Diego annual conference Pattie more than exceeded expectations. Following the conference, I received nothing but positive feedback and kind remarks regarding Pattie’s breakout session presentation. I highly recommend Pattie if you are looking for an experienced leader who can connect with her audience and provide a memorable experience.

I needed the help of a professional coach.

As an entrepreneur, sometimes I focus on the idea more than the people. I love people; I just don’t deal well with all the interpersonal relationships so I realized I needed the help of a professional coach. Beginning with a DISC assessment of the management team, she coached us as a group to better identify our strengths and weaknesses and apply a strategy for working better as a team. She then coached each of us individually, providing guidance on how to relate to others around us, as well as direction in personal challenges each one was facing.
