I personally enjoyed your presentation, as it was both well presented and informative. Your leadership and professionalism were motivating and a testament to the calibre of soldiers in the Canadian Army. The great success of this event would not have been possible without the participation of speakers such as you.
A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to attend a course developed by Patrick. The course was called Tactical Leadership, the course followed leadership, but was geared heavily towards crew resource management. The course completely changed my approach to leadership at work, and to leadership in everyday life. It does not matter what your position is within your organization, there is always room for positive, skilled, knowledgeable leaders. Patrick will create those leaders for you. Thank you, Patrick, for your unknowing influence, your knowledge, and for sharing a few of your learned skills with me.
