I hired Pat to lead our strategic planning as he was highly recommended by another YPO member. Pat's methodology is very sound - it covers all important areas and I felt a real partnership with Pat as he dug deep into our business and got us to focus on the right things. I know he wants us to continue to be successful. I will bring him back again.
