Ryan talks about the impact and opportunity of living in the Age of Longevity.
He is equally adept at speaking to corporate and consumer audiences.



For corporate audiences, he unpacks the dynamics that are creating fundamental changes in our lifespan and the key implications for organizations across a wide variety of fields ranging from health care to real estate to financial services to investment management to technology to consumer products and beyond. He can also take deeper dives with workshops to help groups better understand how to specifically take advantage of opportunities through incremental and disruptive innovation.

For consumer crowds, he helps individuals appreciate the opportunities afforded by living in a time of unprecedented longevity and provides specific actions to improve their or their loved one’s healthspan. Often, people are neither fully aware nor prepared for a longer life and approach this reality with more fear than optimism; Ryan’s presentations and healthy aging courses empower people to realize their full potential in this new era.



Ryan’s talks are customized to the specific themes of a conference or corporate event. His content can also be tailored to a workshop approach with fewer participants but with greater engagement. In some cases, a keynote can be followed with a workshop to provide greater impact for participants.

Popular Speaking Topics


Innovation in the Age of Longevity


We’re in the midst of unprecedented changes in our society with the intersection of longer lives, technology advancements and health care redesign. All organizations will be either directly or indirectly impacted by this shift and presented with opportunities to enhance their business as well as make a positive impact on millions of people. Participants are provided key insights into these changes with direct applicability to their field and area of responsibility.


Thriving in the Age of Longevity


Our healthspan – the number of healthy years in our life – is largely driven by lifestyle choices, not our genetics. Cultivating purpose, creating social connection, promoting physical well-being, investing in financial health and leveraging the power of place are all key elements in flourishing for the long-term. Participants are educated on the latest research on healthy aging and given specific tips and recommendations for thriving in the age of longevity no matter their age and stage.
