“Thanks again for a wonderful presentation and for copies of your book for everyone. Your message was well received and fit nicely with our program.”
Bob Dorsa
President, American Credit Union Mortgage Association (ACUMA)

“Patrick presented on real world and online networking to our entire mortgage sales force. His presentation was engaging, interactive and powerful to foster new ideas, change behaviors and grow our business. How do I know? Within two weeks of the presentation, multiple loan officers had gained new contacts, joined networking groups and/or directly received referrals as a result of their actions.”
Rob Walworth
Director of Mortgage Sales, BECU

“We had Patrick speak to all of our mortgage loan officers across the company about networking and leveraging social media to increase referrals. Patrick was easy to work with and met with us prior to the presentation to customize the content to meet our needs. After two days of back-to-back presentations, we asked our loan officers who their favorite speaker was and Patrick was at the top of the list. Many went home that weekend and implemented the recommendations that he provided. He is engaging, and provides clear, easy-to-implement ideas that any loan officer can take to enhance their business. I highly recommend Patrick as a speaker to any credit union or financial institution.”
Tony Ingram
Regional Director, First Tech Federal Credit Union

“I’ve had the pleasure twice now to attend Patrick’s workshop and each event was very uplifting, encouraging and motivating! The first event was at the SoCal CUREN meeting in 2017, where he was a guest speaker. I was so impressed; I knew we had to have him as our guest speaker at our annual company team-building event. In 2018, he facilitated an interactive workshop for our team focused on his book The Connector’s Way: Building Your Business One Relationship at a Time. The event was a huge success, our employees raved about it for weeks, and it truly made a positive impact on our organization! I can’t thank him enough!”
Laura Roberts
CEO, Community Mortgage Funding

“Patrick’s presentation challenged the mortgage loan officers to view their LinkedIn and other social profiles from many vantage points. His presentation was personalized for our group, dynamic, and very interactive, thus, allowing our sales team to get the most out of his message. Most importantly, Patrick ardently followed up with individual coaching sessions for each sales person and provided personalized recommendations for each of their profiles to ensure that they were maximizing all opportunities in getting their personal message out. Patrick’s recommendations, coaching, and determination to help increase each sales person’s sales numbers have provided noticeable online activity resulting from their improved social profiles. I would highly recommend your team experiencing Patrick’s ‘Galvanizing Effect.’”
Casey Filburn
Director of Mortgage Lending, Advantis Credit Union

“Congratulations! You gave an outstanding speech at our mid-year managers meeting. Thank you for so eloquently describing the benefits of face-to-face and online networking and giving us so many great tips and ideas on how we can network more effectively. We are all looking forward to another chance to hear you.”
Lidia Dokter
Branch Manager, America’s Credit Union

“I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing Patrick Galvin present his excellent ideas and strategies twice now. Both times I took massive notes because it was so useful! His book of course covers many of his excellent points on how building relationships is rewarding for our business and our personal lives but you can’t get enough of a good message, especially with his personal examples and fun delivery.”
Todd Helmerson
Chief Sales Officer, Xceed Financial Credit Union
