Vice President, Human Resources – Cobham Aviation Services
Bright People provided Cobham Aviation Services with expert advice and support in developing a People and Culture Framework and an Industrial/Employee Relations Strategy. Ryan provides thought leadership that is informed by his ability to network across industries and keep abreast of current trends in business and technology. This is supplemented by his ability to translate strategy and concepts into pragmatic, tactical plans. Ryan and his team members go above and beyond the contractual relationship, continuously seeking opportunities to add value through their proactive and engaging partnership with their clients. I strongly recommend Bright People as a partner of choice in shifting thinking, strategy and execution forward.
Senior HR Vice President – SNC-Lavalin
For ten years, Ryan has been a trusted leader that I have worked with through a variety of challenging transformation programs. He is an intelligent and curious leader who understands the practical realities of solving business problems, but also embraces innovative ways to improve the business.
Ryan is able to develop compelling business cases for change which get executive endorsement and buy-in from the teams that are impacted. He is an outstanding communicator which is why the endorsement and buy-in are sustained. In addition, he consistently exceeds business expectations by achieving the outcomes expected of his work.
former Head of innovation – Rio Tinto
Ryan and his team played a key role in the provision of strategic inputs to shape my successful innovation group leading to significant value being realised. This involved bringing together a complex industrial, technological and human solution in a global context.
Ryan is a true professional, he can make the conceptual link directly to the needs of the business and provide strategic advice to help guide the leadership team thinking. Ryan is easy to work with, has a great style and a great sense of humour (essential in business). I would recommend Ryan without reservation.
