With Revana, Pat taught sales representatives how to create and market on-line advertising on behalf of Google. She launched a highly successful version of the same training program for European sales agents in Google’s Dublin, Ireland headquarters. For TeleTech, Pat created and optimized eLearning programs for a major consumer electronics retailer.

Pat’s diverse client base reflects service businesses (Pinnacle Entertainment, Loews Hotels, Westin Hotels) and manufacturing companies (Honeywell) as well as health-related organizations (CIGNA, the Mayo Clinic, Boehringer-Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals), government entities (Cities of Las Vegas, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Peoria, Goodyear; State of Arizona) and related public service agencies (Salt River Project, et. al.)

After receiving her doctorate in Instructional Technology from Arizona State University, Dr. Drechsler became a Certified Associate with the Six Seconds Organization, the global leader for Social and Emotional Intelligence training and consulting. Dr. Pat is authorized by Six Seconds to administer a variety of EQ measurements including the SEI Leadership Assessment and SEI Development Assessment.
