We only met a handful of times but they were so meaningful and impactful. You can totally feel the passion coming from him. And I loved it. It was infectious. But the most memorable memory I had was following him on LinkedIn as he shared himself going to local restaurants who were likely struggling during the height of the pandemic. He’d buy food bring it back and eat and talk about how awesome it was. He’d totally promote these businesses and never once plugged his own. I thought it was so selfless.
Lastly, he was doing a business pitch competition for my event. I was all game for him to have an walk up song “nothing but a good time” by Poison. The AV team botched it. And I was so apologetic. He said no worries and pushed on with the same energy and enthusiasm as if the song was playing.
Rock On Ryan!
