He’s spoken for 2,000 organizations, and applied his talents everywhere from talks at Stanford and Hilton, to performances at the HBO comedy festival, to coaching prisoners at the Donovan Correctional Institute.
He's known by many companies as “The best speaker we’ve ever had,” and by many theatre-goers as a “Master storyteller” and a “Hilarious Performer.”
He is one of the only people in the world to have accomplished a Hall of Fame speaking career and a comedic, smash-hit, one man theatre show.
We hired Patrick to address our audience of more than 500 students at Bryant University, after seeing him keynote successfully at the NACADA National Conference. His philosophies and "take-away messages" connected so well with the goals of our MyPath@Bryant program for exploratory students. Patrick customized his talk specifically for our audience and he was a huge hit, motivating all (students, staff and faculty alike) who heard him speak with a dynamic and impactful presentation.
He is a masterful speaker and we made the right choice in hiring him to be the keynote for our MyPath Showcase event!
We asked Patrick to join our company retreat to kick things off in the hopes to set the stage for us to conduct extraordinary business. And WOW did he deliver!!! Patrick took our group and transformed them with incredible group activities that were well planned and thought out. Needless to say, the rest of our time as a group was groundbreaking!
Patrick Combs is an amazing person with a huge heart and passion for his craft! It was truly a pleasure to have Parick speak at our Sales and Managers Conference in San Diego. He had us be very interactive with eachother to voice our own ideas and give us a new way of thinking "outside the box". I would be thrilled to have Mr. Combs be apart of another workshop in the future. Thank you again Patrick! You are magic! :)
“We host a 3 day event for high performing people and professionals. Patrick was one of our chosen keynote speakers for our event in Las Vegas. Patrick Combs proved to be a extraordinarily dynamic, humorous and captivating speaker and he blew our audience's minds with his personal story. His presentation inspired our attendees to attain new heights on their greatest ambitions and left them knowing how they can do it by giving them insightful keys to remarkable success. I absolutely recommend Patrick Combs. He is a masterful keynote speaker and we will have him back to speak at The Next Level Experience again.”
We're an event driven company that hosts 5 major events a year and I'm always on the look out for a new keynote speaker to bring in to inspire and captivate our members... Over the past 10 years I've easily hired/worked with hundreds of different speakers and have become accustomed to paying anywhere from $50-25k on the high end and $2k on the low end (just for a 1 hour keynote). I share this so you can appreciate that I've pretty much seen it all in this space and if you're considering hiring Patrick there's three things you need to know from our experience with him:
He's going to captivate your audience, he's a master at his craft of inspiration and impact, and he's a class act. To find this in one speaker is a true rarity. Given the chance, I highly recommend you hire him and see for yourself.
For the past several years, we have invited Patrick Combs to speak to our University freshmen shortly after they arrive to campus. During that hour, he challenges them to discover their personal passion and make that their livelihood. His speaking style and real life experiences – coupled with a few memorable props – engage our students and force them to seriously consider how their passions and choices will carve their 4 year undergraduate journey. Patrick’s research into career choices and his interactive nature make him an appealing and relevant speaker. Students line up to purchase his book, Major in Success, and he takes time to sign each one and offer encouraging words. He has the knack of balancing true professionalism with sage advice to give a seriously uplifting and thought provoking performance
Response from Patrick Combs, The Passion & Purpose Advantage™:
Laura and Xavier are an outstanding client that I am happy to work with year after year. This review means a lot to me because it is said in the professional speaking world that if you can captivate college students, then you can captivate any audience. College students demand even higher levels of passion, humor, engagement and authenticity than any other audience I've encountered in my twenty years. I've long felt that it was my speaking experience in the college world that sharpened my speaking skills the most.
Patrick Combs brought his critically acclaimed show Man1 Bank 0 to Houston, Texas in November 2013 and instantly became the HIT of the Houston Fall Season. Playing to full houses and receiving outstanding reviews Patrick enthralled audiences with his magnetic stage presence and style easily winning them over as the details of his story enfolded. Great comedic timing, and storytelling Patrick proved himself to be a top actor even as he eagerly declares himself not to be one. Both performer and show will prove to be a terrific and crowd pleasing production for any theatrical venue looking for a HIT to produce. Highly recommended!
