Recommendations

“Patrick gave me some highly relevant information to orient my career with an innovative approach. He has always good advices and doesn't count his time.” -- Philippe Angely,  Business Development Director 

“Patrick worked for me on several contracts between Dec 2004 - June 2005, strengthening management training for Ministry of Health employees in the WHO-executed reproductive health programme. His private sector and training experience were extremely helpful in streamlining and reorienting materials and curriculum. He had no difficulty transitioning to health management and public sector realities. He was always organised, professional and personable, producing high-quality results and introducing useful extras (e.g. mind mapping, quality management). I would recommend Patrick as a management consultant or trainer.” -- Dr Natasha Howard, former program manager for the World Health Organization Myanmar

"Great Results, Personable, High Integrity" -- Charles Georg, GM

“I've has the pleasure of working with Patrick for several Team Building Trainings that I've organized for multinational clients in China. I must say that Patrick one of my favorite Coaches to work with. He's not only personable and fun; he is also very professional and constantly delivers great results. Although every training session is different in so many ways, Patrick is always right on the dot in regards to our specific training objectives. His coaching skills and experience in team work and leadership has consistently made positive impact on the trainees. I’d work with him again in the blink of an eye!” -- Edlina Razak-Matton, Business Development Director

“We were looking for someone to assess the organizational strengths / weaknesses of a production facility we were considering the acquisition of. Patrick is very pro and most importantly discreet. Throughout his 3 months audit he kept us constantly informed on the progression of his work. Great detailed report with relevant suggestions, considering he does not have a "typical" technical background. Patrick is one of these persons who can blend in anywhere, absorbing/assimilating contents and information in a matter of days. Very impressed by the results...less by the fees... but it was worth the investment. We will not hesitate to work with him again. Mike” -- Mike Donovan, Managing Director

“We have used his services on 3 different assignments ranging from the support of the organizational strategy definition process to the training of senior managers. This young man is a real “Swiss Knife”. He has recovered a two years failing project in under 6 months. Extremely professional and practical, in his approach to problem solving, he has successfully adapted his “business” mindset to our expectations, delivering (and exceeding) agreed upon and measurable outputs. I wish him success in his career and we will keep in touch for further projects.” -- Dr Hte hte Win, Program Director

“Patrick helped me find and hire a Vietnamese professional to join our team in Shanghai. I didn't know that there were many Vietnamese people in Shanghai. Patrick not only lined up multiple high-quality interviews but also introduced us to someone we hired who helped us launch our business in Vietnam from scratch. Remotely. Fantastic work.” -- Bob Gates, CEO

“Patrick is the most professional headhunter consultant I've ever worked with. He not only matches good talents with good employers, but also sees that the talents fit the employers' culture. Patrick is a trusted friend in my career life.” -- Coco Zhang, Business Manager

“Patrick has a strong work ethic. Helped in all aspects of the company from designing television commercials,developing the sales team, to negotiating a buy out with a competing company. It was truely a treat to have a man of his caliber and talent work along side of me. I believe it is very rare and unique to come across a man with his level of talent with an equil blend of communication. He is responable for increasing sales of over 62%. With that I think you would be a complete fool not to have him involve with your company. I have been blessed to have him for the time I did.” -- Daniel Pine, Managing Director
