    Ryan was hands down one of the best speakers we have had. His knowledge of our industry and his ability to touch every attendee with either knowledge or emotion is a phenomenal skill for any speaker. We have not had a speaker who took the extraordinary steps to prepare for a presentation that Ryan took. His questions of our industry, company and attendees were unprecedented in our event planning experience.
