“Pattie Vargas is a gifted presenter, trainer, and consultant. Her unique style is engaging, allowing attendees to quickly feel at ease and want to participate. Pattie easily relates and motivates all levels of company employees from executives to line staff. I consider her a subject matter expert and strongly recommend Pattie and her company.”
Jim Ponder, CEO, Turnkey Solutions
“Pattie provided several "optimizing performance” series' sessions at our company. Through these sessions she was instrumental in helping to reshape how staff viewed personality styles, teamwork and communication techniques. Her message and principles resonated with staff at the time and successfully live on today because of the unique interactive nature of the sessions and the crafted customization of each session to the nuances and personalities within our company. We would hire her again without hesitation.”
John Lodise, Nicholas-Applegate Capital Management
“As a Board Member for the San Diego Chapter of the Project Management Institute it has been my distinct pleasure to work with Pattie as a Training Provider for our membership as well as a consultant on developing our programs for better impact and more value. Her work has been stellar on both counts, and I highly recommend her!”
John Stenbeck, PMP
"Pattie is a “woman of influence” both in the marketplace and in the church. She is a gifted communicator with a vulnerability that draws people to her. Her passion for people is crystal clear. When speaking, she interjects humor appropriately and knows how to engage an audience."
Pam Ingold, Congregational Life Pastor The Church at Rancho Bernardo
“Pattie knows how to connect with her audiences, involve them and hold them with compelling real stories, a playful style and very useful content. Having videotaped Pattie several times, I've seen her work the crowd and work her magic both in training small groups and presenting keynote addresses for larger audiences. I recommend Pattie Vargas to people who want real results from a real communications pro.”
Jim Staylor, President, Staylor Made Productions
“Issue identification, environments of trust, mission statement--familiar concepts, those. Resolving them remains trickier, as we know. I like your thinking on using informality to minimize ego issues. Microsoft "Project" provided me with the mechanics: your book and lecture offered me practical methods to apply the mechanics.”
Brian Howard, Project Manager
"Pattie is a remarkable speaker and leader and we had the wonderful opportunity to have her speak at an event earlier this year. She's dynamic, enthusiastic, and approachable. Her knowledge is apparent and, coupled with a terrific sense of humor, she truly reaches and impacts each member of her audience."
Stephanie Kornman, Director of Women's Ministry
“Pattie's presentation was well-prepared, insightful, full of great and USEFUL information that we immediately integrated into our leadership development and operation!"
Krysta Creighton, Director, Mary's House Transitional Living Program
