Aside from his consulting work, his external auditing skills for business process evaluation deliver a truly independent perspective with acitonable reccomendations. On the consulting side, I have witnessed first hand how Patrick can take a compliance standard and/or quality management program and customize it specifically for the client's requirements to go beyond compliance. This includes driving costs out of the business while delivering a meaningful return on investment."
