For over thirty-five years, Patricia Clason has traveled across the continent doing speeches, workshops and media appearances as a professional speaker, trainer, consultant and writer, giving over 4,000 presentations for corporations, associations, government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Now the Director of the Center for Creative Learning which offers programs for personal and professional development at offices in Milwaukee, Madison, and Detroit, Patricia has written many articles, training programs and personal growth seminars and is a sought-after guest for radio and television.
The focus of her work is on alternative methods of teaching and learning that produce high quality results. Her search for the best in the technology of human resource development has taken her as a student on many adventures through traditional and some not-so-traditional training programs.
An important aspect of Patricia's presentations is that she addresses the psychological perspectives and principles behind the practical tools that she teaches. As a result, audiences are often entranced and excited about using these new ideas.
Her business background ranges from executive secretary to food store manager, office manager, and licensed insurance agent. Currently she is the owner of the Center for Creative Learning and Accountability Coaching. As a consultant and business coach she works with large and small companies, as well as individuals, in the areas of start-up, marketing, and management skills and career building. Ask the Coach, Patricia’s Q &A column on career coaching appear regularly in Employment Times and on Jobs.com sites in cities across the US. Her articles are also often printed in business and trade publications and in online newsletters.
As the host of A Sign of the Times, an interview format television show for Warner Cable for five years, she had the opportunity to introduce people to the cutting edge technologies in all areas of life. Patricia also teaches for the School of Continuing Education at UW-Milwaukee and the Small Business Development Center of UW-Madison.
A member of the boards of several non-profit organizations, Patricia is active in both charitable and civic organizations. She is the founder of Healing Warrior Hearts, an emotional healing retreat for military veterans (www.healingwarriorhearts.org). To keep all this together, and still have time for her family and herself, Patricia must truly practice what she teaches in the areas of communication, time management, and motivation, as well as business marketing, management and ethics.
