Pat wrote and published The Six P’s of Change, his handbook on how to handle change in our lives and work, to national and international acclaim. This is evidenced by many five-star reviews on Amazon.com. He speaks on this subject who enjoy not only his wisdom born from experience, but also the reassuring humor he conveys. Audiences come to understand that change is a reality in all of our lives and that it often offers opportunity. Pat discusses how awareness, education, and an alert attitude can help predict change and how to prepare for that change by putting together a step-by-step strategy that will meet your defined goals.
Presentation Skills for Every Professional CEOs and presenters from many corporations and organizations became significantly better under Pat’s tutelage. Says Francis W. Lavelle, former President of Siemens Health Systems in the U.S., “Not only did Pat compose powerful and memorable speeches, but he coached me in my delivery to my team.” Pat teaches how to be their best selves on the speaking platform, with a strong, creative opening, the powerful and purposeful use of the body, and how to rise above PowerPoint. He transfers his award-winning skills to his students.
Communicating to All of Your Stakeholders, Both External and Internal Pat has stood before employees, community leaders, elected officials and TV cameras to communicate massive layoffs, the status of a strike, and even, sadly, an employee fatality. He has faced every one of these situations with professionalism and grace and always won over his audience. He can teach any audience of professionals how to put together a plan that will succeed for them in the same ways.

Branding Your Organization A major health care organization had a computerized laboratory system that had fallen into disrepute. It was losing money, and the company was ready to be take it off the market. Instead, Pat repositioned it and revitalized its name in the market, and its profits soared to more than $1.5 million. A company was not well known among stock analysts, as it was a hodgepodge of disparate parts that created no singular image. Pat created a campaign that not only brought his client to the top of the search engines, but it also unified its employees in 14 countries under a single banner. Learn more about these rebranding techniques from Pat, a true master of marketing.

Ford R. Myers, Author, Get the Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring
Pat Rocchi integrates his perspectives on the three major types of change: at work, at home, and within ourselves. He meets the challenge with wisdom and sensitivity. More impressive, however, is that (he) also presents a host of practical solutions that can be applied in the “real world,” starting immediately. All this useful information…presented with intelligence, humor and humility.
Bill Lampton, Ph.D. “Speech Coach for Champions”
Pat Rocchi spent decades helping organizations as a corporate communication expert. With “The Six P’s of Change,” he shares what he has recommended to high-level employers. He has seen his approach work, repeatedly. (He) moves beyond lamenting the problems that accompany our turbulent times. You will welcome his ongoing optimism, even as he describes the unsettling factors that make the daily headlines. His approach: “As we peer into an uncertain world with the understanding that change is inevitable, the road ahead may seem dark, perhaps even unknowable . . . .We will never be able to predict the future without error or with certainty. However, we can ameliorate our risks by building our base of knowledge and recognizing the signposts along the road.”
Angela Long, Career Management Consultant, Right Management Our candidates really loved your presentation on Personal Branding as they prepare to re-enter the work world.I’m really impressed by how you weave your subject matter expertise with current events. You are indeed a master storyteller!
Debby Mayberry, Lehigh Valley Professionals, Allentown, PA Thank you for presenting to the Lehigh Valley Professionals group on June 4th. The group found your presentation to be very informative and provided the members with information about job searching and how to approach this transitional time. The process of “The Six P’s of Change” really helps to provide a framework for job searching but also for anyone wanting to make a change or changes in their personal or professional life. I appreciate your time and generosity and hope that you will consider returning to present to our group in the future.
