“Ryan’s session was a hit. I was the board member that introduced him. Ryan’s afternoon workshop, Leadership & Influence:  How to empower & succeed globally, was well received by the audience. The session was well attended and many attendees stayed past the end of Ryan’s talk to ask him one on one questions.  I witnessed a woman who was so inspired by him, she asked if he would be open to being her mentor. He gladly gave her his card and told her to contact him.  Ryan’s inspirational speech focused on the benefits of building winning teams within organizations to accomplish higher goals.  Ryan was engaging, articulate,  approachable and very easy to follow and relate to.  Ryan added a very human perspective to the daily journey many people encounter in the business world.”
