Patricia’s work is informed by over two decades of corporate, board and not-for-profit leadership experience. While at IBM, Patricia ascended, for over two decades, through numerous domestic and global leadership roles in sales, consulting and marketing, but it was her groundbreaking work in talent development that spurred her to depart from IBM and build her coaching and consulting practice. Her unique background includes work on-stage and on-television, which translates to a keen sense for “professional image” and “communication effectiveness” to shape the total presentation of her clients. She says “the value proposition is not found in what you know but in how that knowledge translates into valuable insight that is packaged and communicated with integrity and professionalism to achieve the desired results.” Whether working on strategic talent initiatives, training, facilitating or coaching, Patricia follows her philosophy to “meet clients exactly where they are,” partnering to develop and execute winning strategies; helping clients to harness effective problem-solving skills, align with corporate culture and communicate with clarity, confidence and courageous authenticity for an effective and winning performance.
