Dr. Valerie Patrick


Valerie Patrick, Ph.D. and President of Fulcrum Connection LLC, advanced from an entry-level research position to research management within 5 years and worked on a wide variety of strategic initiatives of increasing organizational scope until her last position of reporting to the CEO for Bayer’s North America operations as Head of Sustainability. Dr. Patrick has worked with over a dozen different universities and colleges as President of Fulcrum Connection LLC as a leadership trainer, strategic planning consultant, and facilitator. Dr. Mark Alan Hughes, Professor of Practice at PennDesign and Director of the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy at University of Pennsylvania, said of her facilitation services:

“Valerie is a brilliant facilitator. I watched her in action several times at the EEB/CBEI [Energy Efficient Buildings, Center for Building Energy Innovation] and she has a real talent for working with multiple stakeholders in complex settings. Many participants, myself included, were academics who are highly resistant to be facilitated or subjected to any other obvious intervention in their own reflections and debates. But Val always manages to get through the process with no one the worse for wear and improves the outcomes for all.”

Dr. Patrick is a Certified Professional Facilitator (through the International Association of Facilitators), a trained Creative Problem Solving Facilitator (through the Creative Problem Solving Group Inc.), and a member of the Association for Talent Development. Dr. Patrick has served as an instructor and a course designer for eBusiness, creativity, and sustainability initiatives for Bayer and for organizational change management, innovation, creativity, influence, team leadership, and gender-smart leadership for clients including for-profit organizations, academic institutions, and professional associations as President of Fulcrum Connection LLC. Valerie is a trained chemical engineer (B.S. from Bucknell University and M.S., PhD. from California Institute of Technology) who spent 25 years in the corporate world and then founded Fulcrum Connection LLC in 2013.
