Patricia Block

I have a passion for creating and sharing compelling stories that positively impact the bottom line. It's all about client relationships and using effective communications to market and sell ideas, products and services.

RESULTS – We envision, design and implement innovative programs that:
• Increase awareness in your target markets,
• Establish and nurture relationships with clients, prospects and the media,
• Sow business development seeds, and
• Generate sales and incremental revenue.

I specialize in serving Professional Services firms, Software/Technology organizations, Green Building and Development companies and Emerging Companies and Entrepreneurs.

My innovative business development, client acquisition and PR programs generate incremental revenue – for Fortune 100 to small emerging companies – e.g., over $335 million for Ernst & Young, Oracle Consumer Sector Worldwide, Spencer Stuart’s Technology, Communications & Media practice and Meridian Builders & Developers (not inclusive).

I quickly crystallize, build and deliver compelling messages and value propositions that differentiate the organization and help the client/prospect understand "What's in it for me?"
