Pat Roque‘s award-winning (yet unorthodox) career reflects her passion for connecting like-minded people who seek to monetize their passion and grow business faster – without selling their soul or losing their mind.
She loves teaching (in person and online) to empower others in her role as their executive business coach, keynote speaker and author of two books. With her Rock On Success 90-Day Fast Action Plan and Rock Your Golf! programs, Pat brings a street-smart approach to folks grow their “personal brand” and succeed using golf as a business strategy! She’s an avid golfer and active member of Women in the Golf Industry, the Bermuda Tourism Board Golf & Business Retreats and LinkedGolfers. She’s spearheaded growth of the Women’s Golf Association of NJ to over 554 members and consults to grow memberships at global organizations. Pat has served on the Boards of WGANJ, the NJ Assn. of Women Business Owners (NJAWBO), HealthCare BusinessWomen’s Assn (HBA) and the Intl. Special Events Society (NNJ ISES). Pat is a top contributor across top groups on LinkedIn. Her blog, 50 ROCKS, teaches life lessons for business and personal success.
Pat’s extensive training includes a BA in Marketing Comm./PR and she was a Washington Center Scholar. Pat earned her master’s degree in Business Management from Thomas Edison State University: her thesis on the benefits of telework and passion for digital marketing led her to become a global media spokesperson and student ambassador for the program. She holds professional certificates in Web Development, Project Management, Social Media Management, Golf Tournament Management and more.
Pat comes from a HUGE Italian family in NJ and enjoys golf, wine, travel, photography, blogging (any any chance to incorporate them all into her day). She is married for 25 years to her favorite golf partner, Alex, and has two children: Lindsey (studying for her doctorate in Audiology at the University of Maryland) and Steven (an Eagle Scout and Monmouth University Communications Major specializing in video and film production).
