Patrick Belcher started PB&J marComm in March of 2012 to share his passion for creativity, communication and collaboration. As an accomplished Marketing and Communications Professional and Sales Leader, he learned early in his career that taking time to communicate and collaborate with others yielded outstanding solutions that were strategic, creative and yielded successful results. As a consultant, Patrick works with non-profits and small businesses to help them achieve the next level to best accomplish their goals and fulfill their mission.
Patrick learned, early in his career, that collaboration brings success. It is something that he has practiced since his first leadership role as a Marketing Manager, and still practices with his clients today. As a Marketing Manager for Enterprise, Patrick authored a strategic business plan with his colleagues that earned them national recognition. He also developed tools that allowed the team to plug and play promotional campaigns that delivered results with minimal effort. As an Area Sales Manager, he worked with his colleagues to replicate the results of the large tent sales on a smaller scale, eventually developing the Pay Day car sale that is still used today. At UniFirst, Patrick worked with the service team to partner to increase route sales and referrals to the sales team. During his time at the Red Cross, he executed events that raised over $100,000, grew contributions, and engaged new partners.
Patrick takes his experiences, the experiences of others and applies them in his work today in a collaborative manner with his clients. As a result, he often saves organizations money by adapting previously used tools and techniques. Especially when it is a solution that allows all to benefit. As a Rotarian, Patrick practices its key principle, “Is it beneficial to all concerned?”
After 16 years of studying and using his professional training on the principles of clear communication, marketing, and branding that made him a leader in sales, Patrick joined the American Red Cross as an Executive Director. As chief fundraiser for the Red Cross in his community, he recognized that the process and principles of a solid sales plan were identical to those of a good fundraising and development plan. That is when Patrick stated “Fundraising is Sales with a purpose.” Patrick’s proudest moment with the Red Cross was when his son Jacob told his friends, “My Daddy helps people.”
PB&J stands for Patrick Belcher and Jacob. Its mission is to endorse collaboration and help interested parties identify strategies that help them get closer to their goals and deliver their mission. Improving communication and collaboration, in a creative way, is a part of every strategy that delivers results. Through this blog and consulting services, he hopes to help leaders gain the resources necessary for their organizations to accomplish their mission. Also to guide professional salespeople to find the reward of translating their skills to helping organizations fund-raise.
