About the Author
Larry G. Patten’s professional career includes over forty years in leadership, administration, and management in a broad range of fields including technology, education, government, as well as commercial and public broadcasting. He has also started several companies and has provided consulting programs and services with both profit and not-for-profit organizations. His career began in high school when, at the age of sixteen, he started a custom audio recording company. In 1959, this was a “cutting edge business” based on what was at that time a new emerging technology of audio recorders and condenser microphones. In the sixties, he had built the company to be the largest custom phonograph record company in Iowa and obtained a franchise with Century Records. In 1968, he joined Kirkwood Community College as a instructor teaching electronics and business practices. Later, he accepted his first administrative position at Kirkwood heading up the development of some of the first individualized instruction and distant learning programs in the country. In 1981, he became CEO of Iowa Public Television and served on the Governor’s Cabinet. In 1987, he was asked by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa to design and develop the technical concept and the legislation for the Iowa Communications Network, which is now built and serving Iowa. Mr. Patten has also served as president of a commercial broadcasting company. He has held various administrative positions and served as president of a for-profit college. Most recently he served as Chancellor of a private professional college. He has worked as a consultant to agencies of both the state and federal government. He was a major contributor to Linking for Learning: A New Course for Education, a project for the Congressional Office of Technical Assessment. Mr. Patten at the request of the Soviet Union Government was asked to prepare and present a paper on the use of technology in education and its effect on society for the then Soviet Union. The paper was presented to the Soviet officials in Moscow in 1989. Mr. Patten has written a number of books in the Champion Series as well as several novels including: The Champion Series: Living as a Champion Champion Health Spiritual Champion Strategic Organizational Development Building Champion Organizations Leading as a Champion Novels: Countdown to Eternity Rondine Solution Vortex in Time
