MEET THE CONTRIBUTORS
At 27, Patrick was then the youngest person ever appointed to the senior executive ranks of the federal government. With a lot of learning on the job, he spent the next 15 years, or so, climbing the ladder, leading teams, launching change, engaging people and sparking partnerships around the world. Two years ago he left that world and re-found himself, dove into his passion for helping others succeed and became a certified executive coach. He now leads a boutique firm of executive coaches whose mission is to help other leaders be better than they thought they could be, and achieve goals they were unsure how to achieve. He’s been described as “fierce energy, in a container of calm” and he likes that.
