“Patrick did a great job invigorating our organization with his inspirational story and message regarding safety and how it relates to our own safety culture.
I highly recommend bringing Patrick in to speak to your people as his candor is honest, courageous and hits the mark.”
— Doug Compton, Packaging Development Leader, Owens Corning
“We asked Patrick to speak at our Plant Managers conference in fall of 2020. The topic was ‘Resilient Leadership in Turbulent Times.’ We had to settle for a virtual conference due to the pandemic. I was nervous and concerned that a two-hour Team meeting just wasn’t going to cut it. Boy was wrong. Patrick did a fantastic job adeptly instigating dialogue and participation. His message resonated with our audience of nearly 200 managers. He gave us practical tips on how to lead our employees during this pandemic and how we can use these tools to manage other common problems in the workplace.
He effectively drew parallels with successes and failures throughout his military career and civilian life. You nailed it, Patrick – thanks!”
— Jim McConville, Division Director, North American Energy Services
“Patrick Nelson spoke to our financial services firm, Empire Wealth Strategies, on the topic of “Investing in Yourself.” He shared his extraordinary story of challenge, sacrifice, and success while educating our agency on ways to improve and succeed in leadership.
Our team was deeply moved by Patrick’s personal story of taking failure as an opportunity to learn and grow, and we highly recommend his services to organizations seeking an informative, motivational event for their team.”
— Gillian Mulhere, Director of Marketing, Empire Wealth Strategies
As a keynote speaker, trainer, and Fortune 500 consultant, I’ve worked with countless organizations who want to create exceptional servant leaders by inspiring their employees and equipping them to take ownership.
My work is motivated by my personal mission to inspire others and influence the future. It’s a mission born out of my experience as a paratrooper in the US Army, where I led soldiers during three combat deployments and earned a Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart.
During one of my deployments, my failure as a leader led to one of my soldiers being killed in combat, while I was only peppered in the back from shrapnel. This life-changing experience set me on a path to help others not repeat my same mistake.
Transitioning from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to working in the NFL, I soon realized that if I wanted to help leaders, I needed to equip myself.
I became the inaugural NFL-Pat Tillman Military Scholar and earned a Master’s in Sport Management and after transitioning to a role as a leadership development consultant, earned a second Master’s in Organization Development.
Since then, I’ve facilitated leadership development programs for clients from Fortune 500 companies to small business owners in a variety of industries with the goal of helping them develop exceptional leaders.
Today, I offer keynotes, training, and consulting services for organizations ready to develop an inspired workforce that will distinguish their company.
We make this happen in three ways.
We inspire your employees by teaching them to tap into their intrinsic motivators. This starts by modeling how to share a personal story and invite others to share their stories.
Once people feel seen and heard, we ignite leadership through personal development. This creates front-line leaders who take ownership whether they have a title or not.
Finally, we invest in the front-line leaders who emerge to fuel new growth and team engagement. This creates bottom-up leadership.
