Patty K is:  Speaker, writer, wearer of pajamas.

Gandhi said: be the change you wish to see in the world.  The change I wish to see is:  more openness, more honesty, more non-conformity; fewer people mindlessly following the crowd; more people showing up as their real selves; and a whole lot more laughter and silliness.


I tell my own stories, in a similar voice to what you see on my blog. I talk about my experiences, my challenges, the methods I used to make positive changes in my own life.   I make fun of stuff and myself. People tend to laugh.   My 2 basic keynotes are these:

Daring to Dress Inappropriately:  What happens when we dare to break with societal norms and show up as our real selves? Based on my adventures wearing pajamas in public.

No one Died:  2 years ago, I decided to sell everything and go sailing – without bothering with tiny details like learning how to sail first. This presentation is about failure, taking risks and learning from experience.

See my Speaking page for details.
