Dive Deep. Climb High. Can Do Leadership in a World of Can’t.


Nov 16, 2022

In this episode, we dive deep into the world of communication, exploring how we can communicate with impact. At the start of his career, Patrick worked as a Residential Life Assistant and held numerous university roles before deciding to branch out on his own and specialise in communication. Nowadays he works with leaders and their teams, using his IMPACT process to help people better communicate their ideas and achieve greater results.



“When people communicate a lot of people start with the what, but I think it’s important to start with the why. What are some intentions for communicating? Maybe your intention is to inform, it might be to discover, it might be to persuade, build a relationship or give feedback. Those are all different intentions, and each intention would require a different approach. If I'm here to discover, I would hopefully be asking a lot more questions. If I'm here to inform. I'd be doing more talking.”



Patrick is a communication strategist, speaker, coach, and author of Communicating with IMPACT. Patrick is one of a few people in the world to have earned the highest designations in both the speaking and coaching professions. Patrick delivers custom, high-value, in-person, and virtual presentations to help leaders and their teams communicate clearly, lead effectively, present powerfully, listen attentively, and make a greater IMPACT on their bottom line through his engaging keynotes, practical training programs, and one-on-one coaching.
