"I have worked with Mary Pat for over a dozen years, in a number of executive marketing roles. She is a highly strategic leader who understands the intersection of the competitive landscape, value of a company’s brand and importance of operational execution."
"Mary Pat has a killer combination – she produces results AND is a pleasure to work with. She worked very closely with our Foundation staff and board of directors to develop a vision statement that is both relevant and inspiring. Her expertise in marketing, branding and strategic planning lead us to the right statement; however, it was her innate ability to listen, ask the right questions and encourage conversation that made it an enjoyable experience. We are already looking forward to our next collaboration!"
“I have known Mary Pat since 1995 and have had the pleasure of working with her at Charter Communications as well as collaborating with her on consulting projects. She brings a rare combination of drive and creativity, coupled with practical business sense that brings value to any project.”
"Mary Pat Blake came into our business during a difficult time and managed to bring order and clarity to the situation almost immediately. Her calm, professional and friendly manner made her a perfect fit with our group, and we have asked her to be on our advisory board so we can always benefit from her wise counsel."
“I’ve turned to Mary Pat many times over the years when I have difficult questions about marketing and about organization and leadership. Mary Pat has a diverse mix of experience that ranges from startups to large, complex, corporate settings. She knows how to get things done by herself and at the helm of big organizations. That’s an unusual combination and gives her insights and recommendations a great combination of insight and practicality.”
“I got to know Mary Pat while we were both at Charter Communications. I marveled at her creativity, tenacity and leadership as the CMO. I asked her this year to help me define the underpinnings of our economic model for Piiku as well as exercise various strategic options we face as we build our patent pending SmartAdvertising platform. She did a great job. I have found her very creative, thorough, a wellspring of knowledge, and a delight to work with.”
What Clients Say: "When I was the President and COO of Cebridge Connections (now Suddenlink) I had the pleasure of working closely with Mary Pat. We had recently acquired Classic Cable and had many operational and marketing challenges before us. Mary Pat worked diligently to assess the new team, assisted in development of the new organization plan, fired up the marketing and sales efforts, and took a leadership role in developing the name of the company and related branding. Mary Pat always went above and beyond my expectations and delivered on key initiatives. When I became President and CEO of Broadstripe we engaged Mary Pat to assist us with marketing research in one of our markets where we compete with two other wire line broadband providers. Mary Pat is a pleasure to work with and she delivers on her promises and provides tremendous insight on not only marketing but also operational considerations."

Her insight, strategic thinking, business acumen, and ability to pinpoint what drives revenue for your organization are where she stands out among the competition. She is one of the best strategic business thinkers, marketing gurus and executive peer coaches you will ever meet.
