Mr Kevin Ryan

Kevin Ryan has spent over 35 years examining how we can communicate more effectively in business, specifically in customer service and sales.  One of the fascinating areas of research is how to interpret a customer’s non-verbal communication – particularly their body language.  He was one of the first sales trainers to teach the principle of feeding back to a client what their body was saying - creating a higher level of rapport and trust in the business relationship.

His corporate experience includes every level from running a small business to board member of a multi-million dollar organisation.  For the past ten years he has coached and consulted to the most senior level in business, the professions and government.

As a professional speaker, workshop leader, consultant and author, Kevin regularly works with groups across Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia.  He has authored or co-authored ten books used in business and educational institutions around the world.  He has also written nearly 50 articles that have been featured in major daily newspapers and magazines in Australia and Asia.

Kevin’s seminars and workshops always receive feedback about his energetic, entertaining delivery style, the engagement level of his activities and the practical, easily applicable techniques the participants take away.
