Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Ryan has been working in the events industry since he was 18, for agencies including Motivaction, Maximillion Events and Smyle. Since starting at Wildgoose six years ago, he has seen the agency grow from five members of staff to 35.

Boss says

Priya Taylor, head of sales: "Ryan is an asset to Wildgoose. Whether seeking out new clients, working on complex proposals or getting out in the field and managing events, Ryan shows commitment and passion in all he does."

Best project I've worked on

Wildgoose partnered with the Cannonball Run Europe to produce an app for delegates to use in their cars. A space became available and I got to drive 2,500 miles around Europe in an Aston Martin.

Most challenging moment

At an event in Bangkok we lost ten South Korean delegates for an hour. Thankfully they found their way back to us. Bangkok can be quite an unforgiving destination.

Dream client

I'd love to deliver a big car launch for McLaren.

Alternative career

I was going to train as an RAF pilot. I'm quite an adrenaline junkie.

Goals before 40

To climb Mount Everest.
