Testimonials For SPARX International

  • There’s a saying that great things come in small packages. Dorothy Patrick epitomizes this statement. With a sharp intellect and heart of gold, Dorothy’s passion for her work and interest and devotion to her clients’ success is evident the moment she begins speaking. But what makes her so much more effective, is not what she says but how she listen

    Scott J Compliance Senior Manager at Raymond James
  • Dorothy is a very talented performance coach and dedicated business partner. She excels at public speaking, as well as executive and group coaching sessions. Always professional, and meticulous, I recommend Dorothy for executive/manager positions.

    Clark S Senior Vice President, Head of Insurance & Annuities, Private Wealth Management at Truist Bank
  • In the many times I partnered with Dorothy to work with advisors she clearly demonstrated a commitment to excellence, in depth knowledge and experience. She is able to articulate her ideas with a high energy level that motivates others to take action and improve overall performance. Dorothy is impactful and trustworthy; a natural leader.

    Chris C Branch Manager at UBS Private Wealth Management
  • I have known Dorothy for several years and the thing you take away almost immediately is that she is a fearless, driven, and intelligent business leader. Occasionally I will count on her opinion and considering time is our most precious commodity, that is exactly when you really begin to appreciate the real value of Dorothy’s can-do attitude.

    Mark LP Senior Consultant at Encounter Data and Revenue Specialist, LLC
  • I have worked with Dorothy on numerous programs and projects, primarily focusing on Veteran advocacy and Professional Development programs. To say she is dedicated and committed to these causes is a vast understatement of her value to the Veteran and Business Community. Her willingness to assist others is only surpassed by her professionalism.
