Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

"Ryan was incredible – so much energy, passion and a perfect blend of great personal storytelling alongside pragmatic tips for us all to take better care of our wellbeing. Ryan was honest about his own experiences with neurodiversity, and this was hugely inspiring; his vulnerability has given our colleagues the opportunity and platform to share their own experiences too which is so powerful. We had a record colleague turnout for Ryan’s talk – even more special when it’s our busiest business period. 2 days later we’re still on a high." - Inclusion & Diversity Manager, Kingfisher

"Just wanted to say how much I appreciated your call with Unily today. Even though I don’t vocalise too much I have had my own struggles that still affect me every day and have a lot of compassion for anyone speaking out on normalising the conversation. I am definitely taking a couple of pointers from your talk. Sometimes it’s simple things but a bit of a refresher put things in perspective and that’s exactly what happened to me today." - HR Leader, Unily

"I watched you with complete captivation and you were truly AMAZING. Super inspirational! Thank you for all you are doing to change the narrative of mental health out there in the world" - TEDx Audience Feedback

"Ryan brought great focus, practical advice and visibility to the digital balance and future of work at Finastra. His approach and actions turned what could have been a performative token gesture into an internal cultural shift which made a real difference... I found his advice enabled me to model, and expect healthier work practices." - Sarah, Customer Success Enablement and Operations Leader, Finastra

"Ryan is an incredible wellbeing and collaboration leader... he has achieved so much - often encouraging colleagues to prioritise physical health, mental health, great tips and techniques on how to sustain a lifelong commitment to personal wellbeing... a burst of energy and a ray of positivity who is very approachable, fun and knowledgeable." - Rebecca, Agile Coach, William Hill

"Integral and driving force behind business change" - Mike, Head of Diversity (Intelligent Infrastructure), Network Rail

"I loved hearing you at HR Vision today. It is always so wonderful to hear leaders so passionate about well-being, and organisations so willing to embrace the importance of it. I work for Cisco and I have been so lucky to partner with leaders and teams who are so eager to put well-being at the centre of what they do - as the foundation needed for success for the employees and the company as a result." - Shradda, Cisco

"I wanted to compliment you on a terrific discussion today during the hybrid forward summit. I truly enjoyed listening to your enthusiasm as you shared the impact and collaboration across the organisation during COVID, and how you are moving forward with a meaningful organisational change putting the employee first." - Noa, EX MSFT

"I just wanted to say thank you for today - it was a fab discussion, we could chat all day long." - Kelly, Nationwide

"I absolutely loved your practical tips." - Rachel, Education Matters

"Didn’t get a chance to come and give you in-person feedback after the session at This Can Happen but wanted to say your contribution was flipping brilliant! Really appreciated the reflection of geographical and temporal considerations and the language you use!! - Anna, Head of Operational Excellence

"Our audience loved him! He made a huge impact and was such an easy speaker who clearly did his research! Thank you from all of us." - Gemma, Culture and Engagement Manager, Unily
