Leadership Keynote Speech

Patrick is a passionate and leadership-oriented speaker who focuses on delivering valuable content and highly practical strategies people can implement immediately and see actual results. His programs consistently get strong reviews and leave attendees burning to put their new strategies to work.

Patrick’s primary message for his leadership keynote programs is as follows:

There is only one thing required to be a leader: LEAD. The world is changing quickly these days and most businesses are holding back, letting other “early adopters” navigate new channels before embracing them themselves. Why? Because they don’t want to fail. But in the process, they are fading into the shadows and while industry newcomers steal customers from under their feet. Being an effective leader requires that you lead. It requires that you try new things before they’re proven. It requires a willingness to fail for the sake of staying on the cutting edge. Tomorrow’s leaders take bold action quickly and admit their mistakes even quicker. Are you up for the challenge?
