“Patrick was retained for two consecutive mandates at Bluestreak. Firstly, to carry out a review of the company’s growth strategy, and make recommendations to the Management Team and to the Board; secondly, to assist with the repositioning of the company in the multi-screen video market. Patrick’s contribution was significant, and his work had a positive impact on the Company. By leveraging his experience and broad contact network, especially in the mobile market, Patrick provided a thorough and straightforward assessment of the market, analyzed the business potential of the Company’s product plans, and proposed practical and executable recommendations to the Management Team. During his second mandate, Patrick acted as an in-house Product Marketing expert, and worked with the Company’s PR agency and partners to reposition the company’s product and services in the multi-screen video market, in preparation for the IBC show.
