>> Testimonials

"The Ryan Estis event is one of the best seminars I have been attended in years. Truly, tired of wasting time on seminars and workshops that don't provide nuggets. Your content on employee engagement and culture really triggered some "aha" moments for me. I had to leave about a half hour early and was literally writing down notes as I was walking out the door. At Shavlik we are trying to change the culture. This was the right seminar at exactly the right time. Looking forward to hearing you again! Great job TCHRA for bringing Ryan and his great take aways to the Twin Cities Community!”
-Vice President, Shavlik Technologies

"All morning, I've been receiving RAVE reviews about our sales conference, ... and especially about your presentation. ALL feedback has been positive. The comments have included informative, knowledgeable, dynamic, helpful, interesting, entertaining, etc. Individual members of my staff said they plan to immediately start using/implementing/adopting many of the best practices because they want to get ahead of the competition and become the most productive 'Rock Star.'
Again, on behalf of my corporation, I thank you so much for doing an OUTSTANDING job for us."

"We engaged Ryan to keynote our conference because we knew he would bring high energy and set the tone for a great conference; he far exceeded our expectations. I have been involved in our conference for 5 years and never had I heard such a buzz that lasted throughout the day and beyond. Not only as a conference organizer did I find Ryan’s energy empowering, but as an HR professional, I still find myself revisiting Ryan’s message and applying it to my daily work life. Thank you Ryan for delivering on your promise; you told me you would bring it, and you did. We would be happy to have you back again!”

"I have leveraged Ryan Estis' high energy training seminars on several occasions. Ryan always received very high marks from my staff and leadership teams. A couple of topics that I can personally recommend to other talent acquisition teams include: Sales Skills for the Corporate Recruiter and Closing the Deal. Ryan's deep experience in Sales leadership and the HR communications industry makes him highly credible in front of this audience. His sessions are fun, highly interactive, and high impact. I am confident that Ryan's approach and experience could add even more value to a Sales organization trying to take their team to the next level. The tools and techniques he has provided to my teams over the years have been invaluable."
