Patricia Fripp
Award-Winning Professional Keynote Speaker, Executive Speech Coach, Sales Presentation Skills Expert

When your message must be memorable, your presentation powerful, and your sale successful, call Fripp.

One of the few professional speakers who can transform the presentation skills of others, she is an executive speech coach and sales presentation skills trainer. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance wrote that one of the best investments in your career is Patricia Fripp’s presentation skills training.

Patricia simplifies and demystifies the process of preparing and presenting powerful, persuasive presentations.

As a keynote speaker Patricia was named “One of the 10 most electrifying speakers in North America” by Meetings and Conventions magazine. 1,000s of clients agree, Patricia delivers high-content, entertaining, dramatically memorable presentations.
Patricia has won or been awarded these designations by the National Speakers Association: Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), CPAE, Hall of Fame keynote speaker, and the Cavett Award (considered the Oscar of speaking.)

Patricia is a past president, and the first female president, of the over 3,600-member National Speakers Association. She is a member of the highly prestigious Speakers Roundtable, an invitation-only group of highly regarded professional speakers, authors, and consultants.

Patricia often teams up with her brother, legendary guitarist of King Crimson, Robert Fripp, for Fripp and Fripp presentations on “How to Be a Hero for More Than One Day” and “Beginner to Master.”

Patricia is now virtually everywhere with Fripp Virtual Training, her interactive, learn-at-your-own-pace, virtual presentation skills training. Fripp Virtual Training’s Powerful, Persuasive Presentations is a multimillion-dollar, state-of-the-art, web-based training platform that emulates live training and coaching. It is almost as if Patricia Fripp were sitting right there with you.

She is the author of Make It So You Don’t Have to Fake It! and Get What You Want! and co-author of Speaker’s Edge, Speaking Secrets of the Masters and Insights Into Excellence.

Patricia Fripp arrived in San Francisco from England at age 20 as a hairstylist with no job or contacts and little money. Patricia excelled in the beauty industry and became San Francisco’s most in-demand men’s hairstylist when that was a new domain. She started training stylists and speaking to promote her business which led into her next successful career as a keynote speaker. On 60 Minutes she was asked, “There must be a big difference between being a hairstylist and a speaker?” She replied, “I used to work on the outside of heads; now I work on the inside. There is only a half inch difference.” That half inch has been worth millions of dollars!”

At three different companies I have watched Patricia Fripp work her sales presentation magic. At First American Home Warranty, it is no surprise that she has done it again. After seeing her in person, my team was buzzing about diving into Fripp VT. Patricia always delivers on everything she promises. I am grateful and excited to bring her talents to our company. I truly love working with her as she helps me take our group to the next level.

— Tracy Berger, Senior Vice President Sales, First American Home Warranty

Patricia Fripp is the BEST keynote speaker and investment! She keynoted our major client conference, Meeting Of The Minds and was a HIT! After her opening keynote she conducted HALF of the ten best break-out sessions. Based on this incredible feedback, we invited her back the next year for and equally successful repeat performance. We were so impressed by Patricia’s performance we have engaged her for executive speech coaching and sales presentation skills training.
