"Patrick is exceptionally successful. Love the chutzpah!"
Tom Peters, best-selling business management guru ever.
"I was formerly a business meeting professional for 15 years and the thing about Patrick Combs that impressed me the most was the level at which he customized his talk for our particular company. Most speakers just make reference to the host company a few times during their talk. Not Patrick -- knew so much about us, he was speaking to us, as if he was one of us."
Jeffrey Miller, Senior Manager, RSM McGladery, Inc.
"Patrick has a well-earned and well-deserved reputation as a speaker and writer. He has shared his wisdom, encouragement, and energy with tens of thousands."

"Beautiful Person, Thanks for helping The Universe. Peace & Love."
Alice Walker, Author of The Color Purple
In my 20+ years of corporate life I have attended numerous national sales meetings, leadership conferences and motivational workshops. None have been as impactful as Patrick's workshops. He has an infectious passion and offers practical advice for overcoming obstacles. Months after leaving the conference I still feel powerful and passionate about my goals and aspirations.
Tamara Hopkins, Senior Manager Global Market Planning Baxter BioScience

Tom Hutton, executive with Met Life in New York.
I don't know anyone who speaks better than Patrick about the link between passion and success. Patrick teaches people how to succeed in the best, fastest way possible. I recommend Patrick to Olympic athletes and company presidents alike. I dare say no one can hear Patrick speak and not be positively affected.

Eric Lochtefeld, CEO, University of Dreams
"I was very impressed by your ability to comprehend the realities of our university's context and shape your message, making it both relevant and seemingly addressed directly to us. Your enthusiasm as well as your genuine commitment to the critical importance of your message for changing organizations added to your effectiveness as a motivational speaker. Perhaps the best evidence of your effectiveness occurs when members of your audience incorporate your message in their work lives. I am pleased to say that this has occurred at IUP. Though simply presented your message is powerful, memorable, and poignant."
Rhonda Luckey, Associate VP, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
