“You are the master of the unspoken word, once it leaves your mouth, you become its slave….so be sure to say something profound.” ~ My Grandpa

If you are seeking a powerful, engaging speaker with a unique story, consider Wendy Patton.

Wendy has faced many challenges in life – poverty, discrimination, and other insurmountable barriers – and she always responded by looking for opportunities and solutions.

Wendy Patton’s life journey has taken her from a poverty-stricken, abusive childhood to a single mom and onward and upward to a successful businesswoman, community leader, and athlete.

This path has given her a firsthand view of the seemingly insurmountable barriers that face us in life. Successfully raising an amazing daughter, world travels, and a humble heart, Wendy shares real-life examples of how she overcame her own daunting challenges by always turning “perceived” disadvantages into advantages and then into success opportunities.

Wendy lays out the importance of a clearly communicated vision and direction, followed by detailed planning, preparation, passion, and execution. Wendy impresses on audience members the need to innovate, to change—all by recognizing and removing the personal barriers that stand in the way. She shows that the walls we bump up against are only obstacles if we stay on a collision course with them.

Stay tuned for her new book, How to Raise a Brave Girl coming in 2021.
