As a former aerospace engineer-inventor and now a licensed hypnotherapist and professional trainer, Patricia Croghan's expertise is in targeted use of the brain as a cosmic transmitter/receiver that can harvest original ideas from the quantum field. Some of the world’s most important scientific discoveries and inventions have come from trance or dream states. Her workshop, Quantum Brain Lab®, teaches researchers, engineers, software/hardware designers, or anyone in search of original ideas, simple techniques to enter a self-directed trance state where they can test different theories and product configurations, troubleshoot design problems, and even receive visionary business ideas.
Patricia's presentations are intellectually stimulating and filled with her passion for knowledge of the extraordinary kind. Her keynote speech topics range from cutting-edge alternative energy science, to maximizing employee contributions by investing in them as a valued "brain trust", and the link between specific emotions and genius thinking. She is an advocate of Biomimicry, the science of tapping into Nature's million-year-old templates for innovative sustainable designs.
Her book, Roads to Freedom, self-published in 1992, discusses the potentials of solar and other alternative energies. Her latest book on how to tap into the genius powers of the brain is scheduled to be released in 2016.

Co-Inventor of the First Laser Wire Insulation Vaporizer (professional)
While working at Boeing Electronics Company, I was co-inventor of a machine that vaporized the insulation off wire prior to soldering wires together. The concept and overall design were mine, and the laser technology was contracted out. I designed the mechanical apparatus that presented the wire products to the laser beam, and wrote the software enabling the laser Operator to specify wire gauge and laser power levels. This laser machine is now a bench model found in machine shops worldwide.
"The Science of Personal Change" (Radio Show, KLAY Tacoma, Washington) (professional)
Aired to Seattle audiences in 2008, this radio show was based on Patricia's experiences as a hynotherapist and counselor. Drawing from her actual case histories and scientific breakthroughs in the science of the brain, the radio show offered solid methods for people to make positive life changes
Invention of 3-Hour Rapid Typing Instruction Method (professional)
Ms. Croghan's Seattle company, Computer Tutorial Services, specialized in one-on-one computer instruction. Patricia invented an imaginative typing game to teach the entire keyboard in just 3 hours. But since the brain needs time to store info as long-term memory, the class had to be extended to 1 hour of instruction for 3 days. The average exit typing speed for students after 5 hours of practice was between 30 - 40 words per minute.

Dave Thomas, General Contractor | Bremerton, Washington
My life has totally changed with the help of Patricia’s video entitled, "Re-Invent You!" Let go of the old me. How does one do that? One of the visions that I came away with from the video was, my old life and my new one were two separate rooms. I am at the door peering into a new life but, I was still standing in the “old me” room. Patricia's video helped me step into my “new room”. EVERYONE in my life has seen a different me! I have found something that I have searched for my entire life: happiness and true love. When one’s life is transformed to a place where the world is new again and the future is bright, how can you not be excited about it? No matter where you are in your life, "Re-Invent You!" will make a difference."

Exquisite Solutions From Nature's Earth Lab
Exquisite solutions are available now to every problem or challenge your company faces, whether it is in product design, chemistry, software, materials and logistics, or corporate strategy. Innovative solutions, tested in Nature's labs for millions of years are waiting for discovery. Although Nature offers her genius sustainable solutions for FREE, the doors of mystery are not forced open upon command. Through the refinement of purpose, the right questions are asked and the doors swing open!
Accessing Higher Brain Centers for Futuristic Concepts and Ingenious Design Solutions
Everyone is capable of genius thought, but few understand the brain's language. Creative brain centers turn "ON" effortlessly, but only when specific conditions are met. Targeted use of the brain as a cosmic transmitter/receiver renders solutions within hours or days for engineering and mnfg. problems, research dilemmas, futuristic designs, and visionary business plans. Work environments that stimulate the higher brain centers are crucial to companies whose success depends on timely innovation.
Corporate Ethics: The Heart and Soul of Sustainability
If corporations have all the privileges of an individual, they will eventually be judged before the law on their moral character. Certain knowledge or data that infers power, carries with it certain responsibility not to misuse it, for then all Life suffers. Corporations that seek to sustain the winds of change must see themselves as a part of the whole. Scrutiny of the global effect of their policies and practices is critical - history shows that tyranny is not a sustainable business model.
Corporate Vision Quest - Humanity's "To Do" List for the Next Century
It is the awesome privilege of corporations to create global change. When a corporation fuses together in an ignited vision to improve quality of Life through its product or service, the opportunity manifests for a quantum leap of consciousness that sparks human evolution. It is in the self-examination of how corporations have harmed humanity that business opportunities become visible. Corporations that can "sniff the wind" and SERVE humanity rather than deplete it, will reap huge profits.
