The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.
– Peter Drucker
Dr. Heidi Petak (Dr. P) is a writer, speaker, communication trainer, voiceover artist, and adjunct college prof, passionate about helping people learn to communicate in life-giving ways. As Senior Creative for the Nashville-based, innovative consulting company, Hippo Solutions, Heidi has helped clients including HCA, Tractor Supply, Asurion, and the State of TN gain new perspectives of their greatest challenges in organizational communication. She has also served as a private communication coach for CEOs and managers in the fields of finance, healthcare, real estate, counseling, and ministry, and has taught communication courses for Indiana Wesleyan, Williamson College, as well as guest lectured at Trevecca Nazarene and Lipscomb on creativity and communication. Teaching engagements have taken her across the U.S. and around the world to Peru, Puerto Rico, Hungary, South Sudan, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Japan.
In her 20+ years as a voiceover artist, Heidi has voiced hundreds of projects for clients around the world, including The United Way, HGTV, Lifeway, Walmart, Honda, Tri-Star Health Systems, Holiday Inn and World Vision. In ministry, Heidi served as the Creative Director for Fellowship Bible in Northwest Arkansas, developing a fully-fledged creative department utilizing video, drama, dance, and the visual arts as methods of redemptive communication. In her work as a writer, Heidi has written 15 musical drama scripts for major publishing companies, one of which was nominated for a Dove Award in 2017 (Shepherds and Kings– Word Publishing) as well as marketing copy, devotionals, and a forthcoming communication curriculum that investigates the intersection of communication and faith. Additionally, her graduate research and writing focused on the rhetoric of opposition- how believers communicate when they disagree.
She most recently co-founded the Heart Perception Project, a timely effort with a non-theist, Seattle-based, liberal friend, to teach diverse people how to engage in civil discourse and experience connection despite political differences (HeartPerceptionProject.com). Heidi holds a Ph.D. in Communication from Regent University, an M.A. in Communication from the U of Arkansas, a B.S. in Broadcasting and an A.A. in Art & Design from John Brown University. She and her husband Brian recently moved to Colorado and parent 4 crazy boys who challenge their communication skills daily. DrHeidiPetak.com
Each person’s communication becomes a legacy that influences how future generations will communicate.
