Patrick has gone on to work with presidents, governors, senators, congressmen and congresswomen, state legislative leaders, and mayors across the country. He started G. Strategies so that he could work on solving tough problems across multiple disciplines: political, nonprofit, and socially responsible entrepreneurship. Some have also suggested that he launched G. Strategies to surround himself with people smarter than him, and they wouldn't be half wrong. Read More
