    Speaker | Trainer | Con­sul­tant | Coach


Keynote — Pan­elist — Ses­sion Leader — Mod­er­a­tor — Mis­tress of Cer­e­mony — Facilitator

Con­fer­ences are expen­sive and require a lot of work to pull off suc­cess­fully. The right speak­ers deliv­er­ing the right mes­sages at the right time are what dis­tin­guish excep­tional con­fer­ences from the rest. Pat­rina has more than 10 years of expe­ri­ence deliv­er­ing com­pelling pre­sen­ta­tions and engag­ing ses­sions. Her breadth and depth of expe­ri­ence make her an excel­lent addi­tion to any pro­gram — as a keynote speaker, pan­elist, mod­er­a­tor, or break­out ses­sion leader.

Pat­rina is highly relat­able across a very broad demo­graphic. She is able to con­nect with peo­ple of every age, gen­der, back­ground, and socioe­co­nomic sta­tus. Peo­ple love her!

Her energy, pas­sion, and enthu­si­asm are infec­tious – no mat­ter what she’s presenting.

Com­ments from a few rav­ing fans …

Pat­rina is an open, curi­ous, joy­ful per­son who is gen­er­ous with her knowl­edge, expe­ri­ence, cre­ativ­ity and con­nec­tions. Pat­rina, who has excelled in her gov­ern­ment career, now chooses to use her brains, char­ac­ter and energy to develop the careers and the lives of oth­ers. She walks her own talk and is an engag­ing, informed and empa­thetic coach, facil­i­ta­tor, and men­tor for diverse groups. I have engaged her to work with a range of learn­ers CLOs and CHROs at an OD event and high per­form­ing minor­ity stu­dents enrolled in a LEAD ini­tia­tive pro­gram. Pat­rina can con­nect with any­one and is a highly cred­i­ble, com­pletely authen­tic lead­er­ship exem­plar.Liz Bar­ron, Senior Direc­tor, Exec­u­tive Edu­ca­tion, Smith School of Busi­ness at Uni­ver­sity of Maryland

Patrina’s “Mas­ter­ful Liv­ing” pre­sen­ta­tion really hit the mark! It attracted almost twice the usual atten­dance for our break­fast meet­ings, and Pat­rina really deliv­ered. Pat­rina is a true mas­ter capa­ble of help­ing her audi­ence find strength and hap­pi­ness within them­selves. She was pro­fes­sional and made a “soft” sub­ject com­pelling, inter­est­ing, and fun. The ses­sion was both insight­ful and engag­ing, and our mem­bers rated it as out­stand­ing. Very nicely done!”Kim Huck­abone, Exec­u­tive Human Resources Direc­tor at America’s Promise Alliance

Geneva Bell, Co-​Editor, Fash­ion Styl­ist, Inter­net Mar­keter – Seek­ing the Good Life with CoCo and Gen

“The next panel I sat in on, enti­tled “Seven Ways to More Joy­ful Liv­ing”, was pre­sented by Pat­rina Clark. Every­one wants to live a joy­ful life, I know I do, so I felt that her panel was a must see! The room was packed and I was lucky to get a seat. I loved her open­ing illus­tra­tion of a fisherman’s happy yet sim­ple life. Great lit­tle story! She made some very inter­est­ing and thought pro­vok­ing points. I strongly rec­om­mend that you check out her web­site Joy­fully You, and if you con­tact her def­i­nitely ask her to tell you the story about that fisherman!”


“Pat­rina is a life force! Ener­getic, informed, knowl­edge­able, and gen­er­ous, she makes joy evident!”

“I was wor­ried it was going to be “preachy.” I loved the obvi­ous intel­li­gence of her pre­sen­ta­tion and was impressed with how she made it easy for every­one to par­tic­i­pate and develop their own take­aways from the ses­sion. Pat­rina is really good. I’m impressed – and that’s not easy to do.”

“She has great energy with­out being over the top. Very classy, very pro­fes­sional, very ele­gant. Love her!”

“Pat­rina is able to make com­pli­cated ideas seem so sim­ple. She is an awe­some presenter!”

“Pat­rina is such an awe­some speaker! I felt so moti­vated and inspired by her.”

“Pat­rina is amaz­ing!! I loved every sec­ond of her presentation.”

“Wow! The time flew by. Pat­rina was such a phe­nom­e­nal presenter.”

“Pat­rina knows how to work a room. She kept us all engaged and energized.”

“I can’t wait to hear her present again! I hope she comes back soon.”

“Pat­rina is excel­lent at shar­ing infor­ma­tion and let­ting you make up your own mind about the infor­ma­tion. I’m def­i­nitely leav­ing with some dif­fer­ent ideas that will help me.”
