Patricia Simon was a remarkable marketing manager at the Straz Center in Tampa. Ms. Simon led efforts that allowed Next Generation Ballet, part of the Straz Center, to grow to a $2million annual budget producing a new Nutcracker that brought in over $500K in ticket sales. The youth dance company received regular press and was featured on many television programs with a major social media presence due to her efforts. This was in addition to overseeing all marketing for the education programs at the Patel Conservatory. Ms. Simon was always a pleasant, willing, competent and hard working colleague and it is a pleasure to offer her my highest praise. Sincerely, Peter Stark, Associate Director Boston Ballet II.
Patricia is a marketing professional in every sense of the phrase. She understands well the industry we are engaged in. Her work is visually striking and viscerally appealing, and its effectiveness has been instrumental in bringing revenue streams to ever higher levels in the Patel Conservatory. She is in command of her budget and works within those constraints to delivery the biggest possible bang for the buck. Patricia maintains a very positive and friendly demeanor (even while working within tight deadlines), and it is really a pleasure working with her.
I hired Patricia as a coach, initially in 2010 and then regularly since then. In a world that is so full of hype and buzz words, Patricia is refreshingly down to earth and results focus. Patricia is an excellent communicator and a skilled listener, she has a great ability to lead people to the heart of problems and to help them find solutions. I would highly recommend Patricia to anyone who is looking for a professional or personal coach
Patricia and team, thank you for all the extra time and work you put in (some planned, some not). You and your team were one of the driving forces to making us “look good” and helping the Patel Conservatory be considered and approved as an accredited school of the David A. Straz Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa, Florida.
