Ryan was awesome!!! Exceeded our high expectations. Thanks so much for your help, it was a pleasure working on this with you. It was so fun, educational and special for us to meet Ryan.



I have booked A LOT of speakers. Ryan is the rare blend of a total pro who’s also likeable and approachable. He brings an ‘everyman’ spirit to a topic that could go over heads in the wrong hands. His content was insightful, relevant, timely, and forward thinking. To this day I still get notes from our members that attended that event telling me what an impact it had on their lives and their business.
