"Pat Gacutan is special. She has contagious enthusiasm and energy, is able to speak to and engage with a variety of different audiences, and combines professionalism with humor in a highly effective way. I have seen Pat present in a variety of different settings with the unique opportunity to work with the people in the audience in the days, weeks, and months following. What she says sticks! People get it, it resonates with them, and they actually USE the information she provides, rather than just saying, "well that was interesting, not let's go back to work." Inspiring people to action and follow through is critical and Pat has and continues to do just that."
