Patrick Batten

Senior Manager of Public Affairs

“If I always appear prepared, it is because before entering an undertaking, I have meditated long and have foreseen what might occur. It is not genius, which reveals to me suddenly and secretly what I should do in circumstances unexpected by others; it is thought and preparation.”

~Napoleon Bonaparte
