In an era of increasing specialization, Patten has developed a capacity to identify the best practitioners and then to form teams that carry out complex strategies either for winning elections or impacting public opinion generally.  These include the most-accomplished international pollsters, micro-targeting experts, media production and placement agencies, and social media professionals.  Based on the particulars of the country or state where he is working, Sam crafts a strategy and works together with his team to ensure its execution. Drawing from his growing portfolio of best practices, Sam helps his clients adopt strategies that put their interests first, and pave their paths to victory.
