Professional summary

Patrick Mulvey enables executives to develop a profitable growth strategy and brings the tools to successfully get that strategy implemented. Assignments can range from just a few days to six months depending upon the client’s needs.

The emphasis is upon how to clarify a compelling vision, architect a credible and compelling plan, and installing the discipline to motivate and hold people accountable for making it happen. Clients can start with a limited scope such a prioritizing issues, or jump-start a war-room with four full-time employees.
