“It was spectacular. I had a great time working with my team and being led and mentored by Patrick; he really had a lot to offer. I brought my entire management team of five here. I particularly liked the exercises and the way he laid them out, explained them, set us up for them, let us work on them together and circled back at the end and gave us a way to implement it back at the office.”

Craig Fluty, EO Albany 

“Since last year, we have been working with Patrick Thean and realized 20% additional annual growth after implementation of his Rhythm system. I met Patrick during an YPO event in Geneva and his presentation and workshop immediately resonated with me. Based on our own experience, I can strongly recommend an event with Patrick."

“Patrick really packs a punch! He’s got so much stuff that’s amazingly simple to integrate into the business. I think the thing that’s really incredible is the tools are really profound in terms of what they can achieve, but the way he articulates them is so simple, well thought out, nicely structured and really scalable in my business.”

Godvindh Jayaraman, EMP Class of 2015, EO Ottowa

“I would recommend Patrick as a speaker definitely.  He’s super easy to work with, really funny guy, has a great way of communicating with any audience, very open and honest and willing to learn and change his presentation based on feedback from the audience or the client. He has a really great way of communicating with the audiences’ needs and really giving them take home value every single time."

Leslie Baum, EMP Director

"Thank you for speaking at our ATSI conference. You mixed in humor, real world experience and practical advice in an easy to understand way. What's more, you left everyone wanting more!"

Gary Puddles, CEO, AnswerNet  

“A year ago Patrick did a half day session with our chapter here at BTN and it was an experience that really transformed our organization. We for the first time have organizational alignment, every employee went from having a different vision of the company to having a very clear vision of the company, we have daily huddles every morning at 8:04 AM, when we first implemented it I was scared to death all the engineers would say “No we can’t do that!’, and it’s now one of the things they love to do and we’re on track and have a great future ahead of us.”
