Patricia Fripp, CSP, CPAE is an award-winning speaker, author, sales presentation skills trainer, and in-demand executive speech coach. Her speech-coaching clients include corporate leaders, celebrity speakers, well-known sports and media personalities, and sales teams. Meetings and Conventions magazine named her "One of the 10 most electrifying speakers in North America." She delivers high-energy, high-content, and dramatically memorable presentations. The November 2002 issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine in their cover story "The 25 Best Ways to Invest $1,000", claimed the sixth best way to invest in yourself is to attend a Patricia Fripp speaking school.

Before becoming an in-demand keynote speaker, sales presentation skills trainer, and executive speech coach Patricia enjoyed a successful career in a service industry. She owned two highly successful businesses that included training both service and sales personnel.

The over 4,000-member National Speakers Association elected her the first female President in 1984. She has won or been awarded almost every designation given by NSA, including the Hall of Fame and the Cavett Award, the highest honor and considered the Oscar of the speaking world.

Patricia is the author of two books, Get What You Want! and Make It, So You Don't Have to Fake It!, and coauthor of Speaking Secrets of the Masters and Insights into Excellence. She is featured in the Bullet Proof Manager video series, which is sold in over fifty countries.
