“Many people have the skills to analyze data; few have the skills to craft a story out of it.”

Ryan’s goal is to make training as practical as possible, hoping each learner takes at least one thing away that they can use in their daily lives.

Ryan loves the diversity of cultures, experiences, and backgrounds that he encounters in his training and consulting roles. He finds that the best training environment occurs when people from various backgrounds share their take on the subject matter, resulting in a discussion driven class.

Interview with Ryan

I would say my facilitation style is “flexible”. If learners are engaging in the conversation and seem interested in a specific topic or methodology, I like to pursue that even if it deviates a bit from the planned agenda.
I try to do everything I can to get people to share their viewpoints, opinions, experiences, and questions. I advocate for open and constructive dialogue, emphasizing that diverse perspectives enrich the learning experience for all. Often, if I can get just 1-2 people to share or engage early on, more people will feel comfortable joining the discussion.
I think about how to make the material practical and not just theoretical. I will bring up specific projects or use cases from my past experience where I utilized the techniques or topics we are discussing. I’ll also ask the learners to think about or suggest specific ways they might apply the material to their lives.
One major benefit is that you can bring people from different offices, cities, and countries into the same training which can often drastically increase your diversity of thought. When you have people from different backgrounds and cultures you’ll get different viewpoints on the same subject, which will enhance everyone’s learning.
With in-person training you do add all the non-verbal communication and feedback that can sometimes be missed with virtual meetings. If, for instance, some portion of the learners are very interested or confused about a particular topic, that may be evident on their faces in-person which would allow me to respond accordingly. In a virtual setting, they may be feeling the same thing but not necessarily willing to put a voice to that feeling.
I really enjoy the Data to Insights course, because it gives a holistic approach to solving problems with data.
I love to travel, play music, play soccer, and cook!
