“We are truly delighted to have one of the leading behaviour-based and cultural-change executive coaches join the HoCoSo team” says Jonathan Humphries, Chairman of HoCoSo. “Our whole team is eagerly looking forward to collaborating with Patrick. He has already participated as an expert on one of our Hospitality Resilience Series webinars, and he has also been a guest on our HoCoSo Conversation podcast channel. During both events, Patrick explained the difference between static and dynamic leadership styles and the impact on the way we approach ourselves, our teams, and how we can improve as leaders. He makes sure to create constructive positive energy, so that everyone can relate to their own experiences. He communicates actionable tactics and strategies, by using real-life examples, in order for leaders to embark on a journey of personal development and inner-resilience.
I know that Patrick will be an incredibly valuable contributor to our team and clients, so that together we can create solutions for the future of hospitality leaders, teams and organisations.”

Tune in to Patrick’s latest conversation with Jonathan Humphries of the HoCoSo CONVERSATION.
Patrick and Jonathan explore the four principles of leadership:
- In part 1, we focus on Commitment and what it means to commit and be committed, as a leader and as a person, and how that affects us and our wellbeing;
- In part 2, we focus on Responsibility and being responsible. There are four levels of responsibility and each determines our path and style of leadership.
