“I recently worked with Ryan at Inospire, where he was able to aid in developing training topics for a General Manager conference with Pivot Hotels & Resorts. The content was relevant and impactful to the attendees at the conference and look forward to utilizing Ryan’s services in the future.
Before my position at Pivot, I was a General Manager and Regional Director of Operations at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants at the property where Ryan served as an Area Manager of People & Culture (Human Resources). In this role, Ryan delivered expertise through advisement of human resource practices along with training and development through delivery of sincere care and concern to assist the company’s growth. The competent execution of his responsibilities was critical to the success of the hotel and its staff. In what typically equates a 50 + hour workweek, often more, he was always available to his team and me and was fully committed to success.” –Albert Smith (Senior Vice President, Pivot Hotels & Resorts)
Ryan and I have crossed paths various times over the past 10 years as we’ve moved along in the industry. The impression that he leaves as a teacher/mentor is influential and contagious to those around him. His delivery is always supported with high energy, engagement, activity and also real-life examples – which is always a must-have when trying to appeal to audiences. Most recently, he conducted a communication training customized to our needs which has helped streamline some of the kinks that were happening within our Management team. Since that time, the dynamic on our property has improved greatly and people still proudly have the material posted in their offices! Even after all of these years, I can still remember some of the first training courses I received from Ryan – Behavioral Interviewing, Time Management, etc. When you take the message with you (even after all of these years), you know its a good one!” -Danielle Cadena (Human Resources Manager & Talent Aquisition, DoubleTree by Hilton)
“Ryan is a highly effective Human Resources consultant! As my company continues to grow in size and complexity; HR, employee relations, and compliance can become a bigger burden to the business, and me personally. This is what Ryan excels in… partnering with small to mid-market firms to help increase employee retention while achieving higher productivity and enhanced organizational culture. Just recently, he saved the company over $360k in fines and penalties from ACA and IRS audits. The guy is just a fantastic resource and partner!” -Adam Beamish (President & CEO, Mark Beamish Waterproofing)
“I worked with Ryan Giffen on the implementation and application of Human Resources for my business. Ryan is not only super knowledgeable about HR and Benefits but also offered us a bunch of great solutions to the challenges we were facing. Very much enjoyed working with Ryan and would be happy to endorse his services to anyone looking for HR expertise.” – Thomas Kish (Partner, JMJ Financial Group)
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ryan on multiple projects. His professionalism is unsurpassed. He approaches each task from an owner’s perspective and not just as a paid consultant. He personalizes his approach to my business needs and tailors his work to specifically address our individual situation. He works with my staff and injects humor, logic, and compassion in every interaction. I look forward to working with Ryan again in the years ahead.” -Mitch Healy (General Manager, Courtyard by Marriott)
