More Info

A master of joyful empowerment and personal growth, Pat shows how it is possible to find joy when it appears there is none.

Her high energy and joyful presence is melded with her unique raw authenticity , creating an uplifting experience that shifts perceptions and brings hope to every soul in the room.

She has presented over 1000 keynotes across Australia and New Zealand and is well suited as an opening or closing keynote.
Pat's entire life has been built on the notion of finding joy when it appears there is none!
She is a cancer survivor; has turned around bankruptcy; repaid $80,000 in 2 years; lost her first child, lost her home and business twice; tolerated a violent relationship; had 10 car accidents in 18 months (none her fault she says!); her family did not speak for 20 years; and she has been literally crippled by ill health. It was when her partner of 20 years left with another woman though, that she crumbled. But, rather than succumb to depression she found another way .

In the face of that adversity she became:-
President of The National Speakers Association of New Zealand
The most awarded speaker in 2001
NZ Speaker of the Year 2002
She then :-
Delivered over 1000 conference keynotes
Convened 2 international Speaker conventions
Anchored her own multi award winning radio show
Convened the NZ Humour in Business Awards
Raised $450,000 and built an art gallery
Was honoured by the Mayor at a Civic Reception in Auckland for her contribution to the nations wellbeing

Now she has launched her own TV show, "The Laughter Channel- Where Human Interest meets humour interest"

Pat can take your audience on a roller coaster of emotions, melding storytelling, artistic representation, positive psychology and emotional intelligence to lift spirits, reinvigorate individuals and teams and inspire them to give full self expression to their gifts and talents. ​​
