We hired Ryan to do our Millennial training at Kids II. He was FANTASTIC! We have a very tough audience - all type A high performing team members - and he knocked it out of the park for us. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a speaker who can quickly engage the audience, keep them engaged and deliver meaningful content.
~Juanita M. Biasini, Chief Human Resource Officer at Kids II
Ryan spoke at our Client Advisory Meeting with over 30 companies in attendance. He found a way to bring his Millennial message to each customer through a creative, interactive and factual presentation. Our client base was energized and inspired after hearing Ryan speak. We would absolutely have him back to speak with clients in the future.
~Katie Lang Stone, SPHR, EVP, Strategy and Development at Fallon Benefits Group
Ryan did a great job presenting timely information about how the current generation of 20 and 30 year old professionals think and work. He was personable and delightful in his presentation. The audience of 600+ fire chiefs and emergency service leaders left with better perspectives on their future leaders as well as a heightened awareness of the need to become familiar with new technology and social media. Ryan was entertaining and upbeat. We truly enjoyed having him.
~Brandi Plunkett, Director, Center for Executive Development at Texas A&M University
Ryan spoke to all of our Executives and leaders regarding engaging the millennials in our workforce. Ryan is the consummate professional. He was prompt in his response and he did his homework in terms of learning about our organization and what message he needed to send. Ryan’s style is engaging, humorous and professional. His material is grounded in his research, which hit home for our audience. I highly recommend Ryan to speak on leadership and the generations---he was a big hit for us!
~Mimi Weber, M.S., R.N., Chief Learning Officer at Memorial Healthcare System
Because (ISC)2 is a global organization and our members can be found in more than 160 countries, we value diversity. Ryan gave us even more to think about - generations. We were very pleased with Ryan's program at our All Hands Conference. We plan to continue to build on what he imparted with the commitment of our staff as we leverage working together. Ryan is a very engaging, and we received very positive feedback from our attendees.
~David Shearer, CISSP, PMP, CEO at (ISC)2, Inc.
Ryan Jenkins is a creative and forward thinking speaker on generational differences. I have attended two workshops facilitated by Ryan, one of which I was the coordinator, and he blew me away both times with his ability to take a confusing topic (generational differences) and help it to make sense. He interviewed several attendees prior to the workshop and used that information to customize the presentation to our specific needs. Ryan is truly a Next Generation Catalyst, and I highly recommend him to any organization looking to move forward into our multi-generational world.
