Clients Are Saying…

American Payroll Association

Thank you for your phenomenal contributions to APA’s Annual Congress. You continue to outperform yourself. Your continued learning development and success of APA’s National Speakers Bureau is a legacy that we are extremely proud of. We are indebted to you for the journey of growth and improvement you have taken us on.

The participants of your Pre-Congress and Congress workshops continue to ask us to bring you back. You are inspiring, engaging, and energetic while delivering great content. One first time attendee told me, ‘The sessions with Patricia Fripp were worth the entire investment of coming to Congress.

APA is extremely grateful for your nearly 2 decades of engagement and support speaking, training, and coaching.

– Dan Maddux, Executive Director
American Payroll Association

Focus Learning Corp

The leadership of FOCUS Learning Corporation appreciates your efforts towards our conference success. Your preparation for your keynote, “How to Take the Conference Home,” was amazing. Even with your preparation interviews of our clients, our president had no idea it was possible to deliver an upbeat keynote on technical issues. We still do not know how you managed to sit through the many presentations that could be considered rather dry for an outsider.

You did your homework and brought us an outstanding wrap-up that tied things together. I don’t know how you can absorb all of that new material and then go forward incorporating key facts and people in your speech. It takes talent and skill to be such a powerful speaker.

– Dianne Moore, Conference Coordinator
FOCUS Learning Corporation

Your presentation was exciting, inspirational, moving, entertaining, funny, and filled with substance. For many of the attendees, your presentation was the pinnacle. In point of fact, I have never worked with a speaker who takes their job as seriously as you do. Your interest in our association, our industry, and our needs, your tireless preparation and thought over the past year proved to be obvious when you stood in front of our group. You sure showed Mark Victor Hansen and Zig Ziglar how to deliver a speech!

– John E. Welshons, Convention Chair
American Cemetery Association

Centaurus Financial, Inc.

Patricia Fripp received the highest reviews of any of our professional keynote speakers in our company’s history. We have hired at least thirty top-level professional speakers. Fripp is the best.
