Success with event and project management is dependent on our ability to build a strong team, define our strategy and goals, and execute our plans on a very rigorous schedule. We see each project as though we are building a corporation in a foreign land, residing and working within the dynamics of this land and culture, and preparing our employees to reflect a strong professional work ethic. Cultural training, language training, event logistics, residency, accommodations, transportation, finances, payroll, employee management, security, and contingency planning are all critical elements of successful event planning and management.
The Goodness Company has global experience, with development projects and consultation services provided around the world. We understand the importance of thorough research and preparation to ensure a thoughtful approach and successful results. We welcome the opportunity to promote the interests of our clients with professionalism, passion and unmatched enthusiasm.
Let’s get the first question out of the way. Yes, Goodness is his real last name.
Goodness, a globally recognized medical tourism marketing, communications and branding authority, has been making a mark around the world since he was a teenager. Patrick left home to study for the priesthood at the age of 13, was a congressional lobbyist by the age of 17, studied ancient indigenous mythologies in the South Pacific at 21, and started The Goodness Company at the age of 24.
Patrick initiated his career with the illustrious Leo Burnett Company, a global advertising giant. After two years with Leo Burnett, he started his own advertising, marketing, PR and event management agency, earning business from Fortune 50 Giants like Allstate and Microsoft within the first year of business. Since then, Patrick has earned the confidence of small, midsize and large corporate clients around the world, helping inspire a passionate, integrity-based approach to marketing and communications.
Patrick is often sought out as an insightful partner for US corporations seeking a market foothold within Latin America, and by global companies of every size seeking to establish a market presence in the US and abroad. Patrick’s knowledge and understanding of global business markets and his firsthand experience with business development in Latin America and North America make him a strong business ally.
The success of The Goodness Company is due to our willingness to provide a broad base of medical tourism marketing, advertising, communications and event management solutions for our clients. "Our clients are looking for an agency that will roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty and do what it takes to accomplish success. Our client partners expect us to take action and drive positive, effective results. No excuses. And that's exactly what we do."
After many years of global business development and a passport that has been stamped by more than 101 countries, Patrick resides with his wife (and business partner) and their 2 children in Costa Rica, where they operate the Latin American offices of The Goodness Company.
Patrick’s business and travel features have been published in regional and national newspapers, magazines and online media. Goodness is a marketing consultant with Fox Business News, CBS, CNN and many international print business news media vehicles.
“Our experience with The Goodness Company is always positive and inspirational. Their team is always brimming with great ideas to help us grow! If you're looking for a marketing agency that provides strong experience, personal attention and creative ideas that generate positive returns, you can trust The Goodness Company. We do.”

“I had the pleasure to work with Patrick in a Marcus Evans conference held in San Jose, Costa Rica. He delivered an excellent presentation, well organized and created a unique atmosphere that facilitated strong interaction among event attendees. Patrick is very welcoming and a warm host with the right balance between presentation content quality/professionalism and personal skills.”
