Humanizing Safety Leadership
Workshops for organizational safety through individual empowerment.
“We’ve used Patrick a couple of times, and he was fantastic!
Whether it was a one-hour webinar for about 250 leaders and aspiring leaders or a keynote session for 150 plant managers and corporate leaders, his material was on target and left us uplifted and challenged. His ability to connect, even virtually over the internet, kept everyone highly engaged. His experiences in the military and the ability to translate those to relatable and relevant business leadership principles worked really well with our audiences. And he’s great to work with. We definitely recommend Patrick; great job!”
— Rob Simmerman, Senior Operations Director, North American Energy Services
“Talk about a high-energy, engaging speaker!
There is a reason why Patrick Nelson is my first call when our organization needs a speaker/facilitator to deliver a message and truly connect with our workforce. Patrick has a remarkable talent for leveraging his unique life experiences and powerful personal stories to provide a statement that impacts his audience.”
— Jeff Burro, EHS Manager, Marathon Oil
"Our firm was fortunate enough to have Patrick come and virtually speak to us and share his experiences.
Patrick’s enthusiasm paired with his real-life examples were inspiring. He reinforced the values of professionalism, accountability, and most importantly integrity. We continue to reference the value of his insight as it inspires our continued growth."

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.
