Prior to starting SalesBrain, Patrick marketed complex, multi-million super-computers first with Silicon Graphics then with LinuxCare. After two years of research, he developed the first 100% science-based persuasion model NeuroMAP™. This unique, scientific yet easy to apply persuasion model was first published in Patrick’s book NeuroMarketing: Understanding the Buy Buttons in Your Customers’ Brain.
