Ryan shows leaders and their teams how to Go From A to THE® in their industry!

“What is the hardest thing you have ever had to do?” was a question Ryan Avery couldn’t answer when asked at age 24.  But he laser-focused on the question for weeks, obsessively watching hours of YouTube videos for days on end.

When he came across the video of someone trying to win The World Championship of Public Speaking, he thought “Isn’t public speaking the hardest thing for some people to do, and aren’t most people more afraid of public speaking than anything else? What if I enter this contest? What if I have never given a speech in my life but win this contest? What if I win the world championship THIS year?”

Eight months later, Ryan became the youngest World Champion of Public Speaking in history competing against 30,000 people from 116 countries to win the World Championship of Public Speaking. It was the hardest thing Ryan had ever done…  at the time! Ryan is still the youngest winner in history, but after becoming the World Champion, he wanted to see if he could apply the same principles and strategies he learned winning the contest to other things in his life.

Using the same strategies, Ryan has broken numerous world records, has written two best-selling books and works with companies all over the world showing them the strategies he used to go from A speaker to THE speaker in less than 8 months.

Ryan hadn’t realized it at the time, but before winning the world championship he was learning some of these strategies while working with Nike and at Special Olympics in their sports marketing department, putting on THE  events, developing THE  fundraising campaigns and working with THE  team.

He now has one mission: to show leaders and their teams how to Go from A to THE® in their industries using these proven strategies we all can use to be the best version of ourselves.
