Testimonial for Gary Patterson, Fiscal Doctor as speaker
The Brain Trust Speaking Testimonial Before CEO Group
Gary spoke to my CEO group, and the information he provided was very valuable. I mentor Business Owners and CEOs in my consulting practice, and I have found that most of them are so focused on growth and managing through their challenges that they lose sight of the basic things they need to be doing to manage the financial aspects of their company. Gary has a wonderful process to put companies through that identify million dollar blind spots that can put companies back on track.

Work with Leaders to Uncover Financial Blind Spots by Gary Patterson
Excerpts from the Fiscal Fitness Process available on Amazon
As a business executive, have you ever stopped to ask yourself, “What You Don’t Know About Your Business Can Cost You Your Business.” Stick our your balance sheet and cough gets you what you need to know in time for any needed procedures which can mean the difference between life and death.
Sticking out your balance sheet is no more comfortable than a visit to your doctor, but it’s every bit as important. Even if it’s bad news (maybe especially) you need to know.
Even before the Bernie Madoff scandal and the financial meltdown, Patterson saw companies struggle, and worse, die from self-inflicted risks they unwittingly took. Patterson has built a 30-year consulting practice helping companies develop and implement an ERM strategy to ensure long-term financial growth while managing risk and uncertainty. Use his proven methods and signature management practices.

Risk Management Practice
Stick Out Your Balance Sheet and Cough
“Risk management is about identifying particular risks endemic to a company’s business; not about assessing, monitoring, mitigating, and responding to generic risk. Gary Patterson avoids tiresome buzzwords like ‘market liquidity’ and obtuse math formulas and instead uses plain English to shed light on a subject that is in desperate need of an overhaul. How many risk analysts ask: ‘Who are your top ten competitors and what do they do?’ Pattterson does.”
