TELL ME ABOUT YOU...
Rediscovering The Human Connection In a Disconnected World
TELL ME ABOUT YOU...
“Tell Me About You” began after watching Pink’s acceptance speech for the 2019 People’s Choice Awards. Not typically moved by celebrity acceptance speeches, her words surprised and inspired me. She said that “Kindness has become an act of rebellion”, and she also said “I don’t care about your politics, I want to hear about your kids”. Her words had such a profound impact on me that I was inspired to write the song that launched "TELL ME ABOUT YOU".
We find ourselves in a crisis of self obsession where people are so involved with talking about themselves that we've lost the ability to listen to each other. Engagement is measured in clicks and likes and we have retreated into our phones, tribes, beliefs, political parties and safe spaces. We’ve built invisible walls and are left to wonder why it’s become difficult to get people to engage. “Tell me about you” is about deconstructing walls and reconnecting with people on a human level. It's not only about being the hero of our own story but taking the time to listen to other people's story. When we have meaningful conversations with people about what is important to them, we sell more, become better leaders, create engagement and increase productivity. Most of all, we run the risk of making friends with people who don't look, act, or believe the exact same way.
The "Tell Me About You" keynote presentation will reveal four mindsets to building an emotional connection with customers, coworkers and community. As a former Nashville songwriter and featured performer on the SiriusXM Radio Family Comedy Channels, Patrick believes that learning and inspiration go hand in glove with laughter. When meeting professionals hire Patrick, they gain a partner who works to create a keynote experience where people are engaged, inspired, and entertained. One of Patrick’s audience members best described him as what happens when keynotes, comedy, and concerts…collide.
