What Our Clients Say...

Patrick has served as highly-valued advisor to IMA's Innovation Council. He helped us recognize that success can range from incremental to breakthrough, and we don't always need to achieve a "home run." We are very grateful for his advice on how we can involve our members in crowdsourcing. Patrick is very creative, down-to-earth, and a pleasure to work with.
