We were extremely lucky to have Patrick speak to over 175 of our mortgage loan originators about relationship building. He shared a number of easy and practical ideas that our people were able to implement immediately. In the world of clicking the button to place our order, Patrick has a refreshing take on building and leveraging relationships for maximum advantage. I highly recommend seeing Patrick speak and reading his book, The Connector’s Way.”
Joe Ewens, EVP Production, Golden Empire Mortgage (California)

“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 because of their actions.”
Rob Walworth, Director of Mortgage Sales, BECU (Washington)

We had standing room only. There were 130 people in the room and everyone was mesmerized!
Shayla Gifford, Branch Manager, Guild Mortgage (Nevada)

I met Patrick at an event for top producing mortgage and real estate professionals. I was drawn to his message and how he’s truly someone who believes in building a relationship business. The principles are so spot on that we decided to host a video simulcast with Patrick, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the response of our attendees as well as the additional nuggets I was able to get for my business. I’d recommend Patrick to anyone who’s looking to build a better business one relationship at a time.”
Suzanne Caldeira, Vice President, Shamrock Financial (Rhode Island)

We learned so much from Patrick about relationship building—and that’s really the industry that we are in. I knew his presentation was a success when I looked around the room and saw that no one had picked up a phone the entire time. People leaned on every word he said.
Matt MacGillivray, Regional Vice President, Guild Mortgage (South Carolina)

“We had Patrick speak to all 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 (Oregon)

Patrick was the keynote at our sixth 10X Growth Summit and it could not have gone better. The feedback continues to pour in from real estate professionals, financial professionals and mortgage professionals who rated this event the highest of any previous event and alluded to the value of Patrick’s talk and the principles in his book, The Connector’s Way.
Trevor Hammond, NW Regional Manager, Sierra Pacific Mortgage (Oregon)

We got so much out of this workshop because Patrick had people talking and engaging with each other. Some people have even been reading his book in-between breaks!
