Ryan’s presentation on Google Analytics was most interesting, as it provided an easy solution to monitoring so many aspects of work, and was really easy to follow, even for non-IT people.

Ryan was friendly, knowledgable and very easy to listen to and understand, not too much jargon. He spoke at an appropriate knowledge level for the variety of levels in the class. Just funny enough, without being silly or losing credibility. Very impressed.
