Jackie Carroll – Virtual Reality “Mind Immersion” Creator – CEO, GIAH (Genie in a Headset) – Author & Entrepreneur
“Patricia was recommended to me by my podcast editor. I went and did a little googling and had a look and listened to a few of Patricia’s podcast shows. Patricia has a very impressive background and she really cares about her clients. I love her interview style and she seems to know how to bring the best out in people. I had never done anything like this before so was a bit sceptical as to how this was going to work and how Patricia could improve what I was doing. After the first two sessions I was impressed with how much we had achieved.”
“Patricia got to understand my speaking “style” quite quickly and made some brilliant suggestions on how to improve my show. It is great to have someone in the industry who has many years experience helping you to brainstorm podcast sessions and episodes. The sessions with Patricia flow so smoothly and I always come away feeling like I have accomplished quite a lot. Patricia is fair and a woman of complete integrity. If I was to tell someone about Patricia’s podcast coaching I would say that when you work with someone like Patricia you get decades of knowledge, insight and experience which money simply can’t buy. She is easy to get on with and has a very positive demeanor. I would highly recommend working with Patricia as she will give you the guidance and confidence you need to have a successful podcast show.”
Dr. Will Aguila, M.D. – Weight Loss Expert – Radio Host of “The Dr. A Show”
“I never thought I would host my own radio show, much less a highly successful one. Reality far exceeded expectations. Patricia Raskin made this process possible. With her infectious tenacity she guided me from author to interviewer. I learned the business and gained the self-confidence to interview such guests as Dr. Oz and Dr. Andrew Weil just 14 weeks into my show. She is one of those rare individuals that possess honesty, integrity, and a powerful work ethic that is long since forgotten in today’s industry. This is why she is successful…this is why I have the Dr. A Show!”
What should my Focus be/my topic be?
Whatever your clients and customers need most. Answer the questions they frequently ask and focus on topics that address common problems.
Do I need to have guests, and if I do, who do I choose?
Guests can help you grow your audience. The more popular and well-known the guest is, the more listeners you will have.
What makes a listener tune in/tune out?
They tune in because they like what you say, how you say it, and they need the information. They tune out because the content is boring, they are not getting what they need, or the technical quality is poor.

“During a recent conference, I attended one of Patricia’s Corporate Training seminars on Conflict Management. Her passion and expertise on the subject were evident from the get-go. She took us through her framework, consisting of five different conflict management styles and provided concrete examples that all of us in the assisted living industry can relate to. She had a unique ability to engage with the audience through a lively discussion and encouraged everyone to self-assess themselves in various situations. I left feeling more equipped to navigate and resolve conflicts, both personally and professionally. Patricia’s delivery of the topic was powerful and dynamic. I highly recommend Patricia’s Corporate Training seminars for anyone serving in the senior care community where effective conflict resolution is a crucial skill.”
Richard Gamache, CEO Aldersbridge Community, East Providence RI
“I highly endorse Patricia Raskin as a presenter and facilitator for education programs for any leadership team. We have begun working with Patricia in the last few months, and I can see results already. The most recent program that she brought to us focused on stress, burnout and compassion fatigue. In an hour, Patricia was able to connect with the leadership team, bringing insights and solutions that were easily implemented into our busy schedules. The group came into the program feeling overwhelmed by the pressures we all face, and left a short time later feeling rejuvenated and hopeful, with a plan. Patricia accomplishes more in one hour than most corporate retreats do in two days.”
Tameryn Campbell, President & CEO, Masonic Health System, Inc. / The Overlook, Charlton, MA
“I had the pleasure of hearing Patricia Raskin present during the May 2023 New England Alliance for Long Term Care professionals. With increased confrontation and less civil and tolerant interactions with one another, further exacerbated by the uncertainty, angst and isolation stemming from the COVID-19 Pandemic, Pat’s focus on Challenging Behaviors & Difficult Conversations was spot on. Her message touched me and helped provide valuable strategies, tools and confidence to take action and achieve greater harmony & resolution, with individuals & discussions I had previously resisted.”
Patricia Raskin presents motivational and key-note talks for corporations, healthcare institutions, colleges,non-profit organizations and service organizations.
Her message is how we can reach our goals by working through obstacles and transforming them into opportunities by reframing our thinking, changing our behavior, adapting healthy lifestyles and having a support system.

Your focus on “Positive Living” was exactly on target for this group, and although your were intellectually stimulating, your delivery had a warmth and sparkle that reached everyone. Graduation is a time for people to move from one phase of life to another. I can think of no better words for them to carry forward than yours. Thank you for giving us this time.”

You have a program worth sharing.”
White Watkins, VP Public Affairs, America Furniture Manufacturers Association
