Topic: Develop your personal brand, achieve goals.

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.” – Greg S. Reid

You plan vacations, you plan milestone moments, you make a living planning and managing projects. How are you at planning a life?

Patrice’s rise to success as a business owner and subsequent loss has taught her much, namely, how important it is to cultivate your personal brand to help you recover quickly and achieve your goals.

Described as an inspirational speaker, Patrice will share some of her first hand learnings on developing a personal brand to help you achieve goals using commitment, consistency, and connections.


  • Set S.M.A.R.T. goals
  • Commitment to the action points
  • Define Consistency
  • Ways to Connect
