"Expertly weaving big-picture ideas, practical know-how and humor into a one hour presentation, Patricia had us at 'hello'. Unlike so many high-profile speakers, she didn't deliver a stock speech but rather a carefully tailored, well thought out presentation and message that left the audience inspired and enthused about the prospects ahead. She's simply terrific."
Carol Flagg, Association of Alternative Newsweeklies

“We have one question. When can we have you back?”
 Jeff Babcock, Chair, The Executive Committee

“Patricia’s enthusiasm for the topic and her ability to provide real life examples to illustrate the concepts made the workshop practical and engaging. We appreciated her straight talk and ability to help us see the value JA provides, not the 'charity'. Patricia provided some great 'ah-ha' moments that will have lasting impact on the workshop participants. Outstanding!”
Leslie Pierce, Vice President, Learning and Talent Management, JA Worldwide
