“We were really pleased with the presentation and keynote delivered by Patrick Gant of thinkit creative, here at Carleton University. Patrick’s engaging style and his thoughtfully researched material gave our audience valuable insights and helped generate a really great discussion. We also really enjoyed his innovative use of slides, which served to complement rather than compete with his message. A well recommended speaker!”
—Patricia Reynolds, Carleton University
“When Patrick expressed interest in becoming a guest teacher for my Writing for Print class I took advantage and threw him into the deep end. Well, not only did he swim, but he came across as the Michael Phelps of B2B. My students (and I) were very happy to have Patrick share his knowledge, expertise, and passion for writing that sells. Which leads me to conclude that you’ll be just as a happy when hiring him to perform his strategic and creative magic for you.”
—Jake Volt, Professor, Advertising, Algonquin College
