?? Hello, I’m Ryan, your host.

 

I’ve coached product managers and product teams at dozens of companies including Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, Capital Group, Microsoft, Bank of America, Ernst & Young, PWC, and Apple.

I was a product manager at LinkedIn, director of product at Degreed, and am now Chief Product Officer at Sprintwell.

I built the first internal version of what today is LinkedIn Learning.

I started as a developer and then got my MBA at Brigham Young University with a focus in Organizational Behavior.

I love helping product managers find their next role and ship impactful products.
