SEAN RYAN  SPEAKER

ABOUT SEAN:

Sean Ryan has been in the realm of leadership development, and working with teams for nearly a decade.  One of his passions is taking back the story of Fraternity & Sorority Life.  Rather than sitting back and allowing the media to control our narrative, Sean Ryan works to empower students to author a more authentic portrayal of our communities.  As a graduate student at The University of Iowa, he joined Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) as a founding father where he learned the value of student organization membership.  His accolades and certifications are too numerous to count but here are a few that are sure to impress: certified mediator, Myers Briggs/MBTI practitioner, and low ropes challenge facilitator.

PAST EXPERIENCE:

One of the strengths behind Sean Ryan's ability to effectively facilitate and lead is his dynamic and extensive experience.  He has worked at numerous institutions including; The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Longwood University and Dickinson College where he currently serves as Associate Director of Fraternity Life and Experiential Leadership Education (if you think the title is long, you wouldn't believe his job description!)  In each of those roles Sean Ryan has found a way to impact students, influence change, and foster growth.  When he tells his story BURNED | ego + consequences, attendees find themselves sitting on the edge of their seats.
