About Ryan

Drop me a line!

Classy shirt.

Ryan Geist has built a career working with world-class organizations including Deloitte Consulting, Accenture, Launchbox Digital, Ferrazzi Greenlight and The Kennedy Center Honors.  At Deloitte, he quickly noticed a breakdown of communication between Generation Y employees and their managers.  This led him, and a small group of his peers, to pioneer one of the most innovative and effective inter-generational communications programs in the world.

After almost three years in the corporate world, Ryan grew restless and left Deloitte to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship.  He joined his good friend Sam Blum to work on Razume, a startup company funded by Launchbox Digital.  Ryan managed marketing & product development.

Most recently, Ryan joined Keith Ferrazzi on tour to help him successfully launch his new #1 NYT bestselling book Who’s Got Your Back. He continued to work with Keith to find new ways to help people through his brand new website KeithFerrazzi.com and his online learning academy: RelationshipMastersAcademy.com.


Ryan Geist is fascinated with the psychology of Influence. He focuses specifically on Influence’s role in leadership, communications, marketing and deal making. This blog chronicles his observations and advice.

    Hey Ryan from Dallas Denise:

    Just checked out your website and am impressed. Love your writings, thoughts…particularly on influence. How did New Orleaans go? I need to get on Twitter more. Enjoy the 4th in San Diego? Have a GREAT day and let’s talk soon.

    Hey Ryan. Enjoying your thoughts and looking forward to reading more. Side question… do you know what type of camera Keith is using to record the Youtube video that is being posted as part of his tour? Clarity is great. Or perhaps the HD version is what is being embedded.

    Hey, I saw you tweeted about my talk at BarCamp. As you seem to be more neutral than others who tweeted, I’d like to hear what you thought of my talk. I’m trying to get unbiased feedback.
