About Gary

Gary RyanGary Ryan is the owner and Founding Director of Organisations That Matter, a boutique leadership consulting firm.

I acknowledge the Boon Wurrung People of the Kulin Nations, the traditional owners of the land upon which I was born, and continue to live. I pay my respect to their elders past, present, and emerging.

I work with organisations to help their leaders perform in a manner that is great for the people they lead, great for organisational results and great for themselves! The leaders I coach accelerate revenue, decrease costs, increase employee autonomy & engagement and raise their personal incomes and career opportunities.

I am the author of the #1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller: Disruption Leadership Matters – lessons for leaders from the pandemic and  What Really Matters For Young Professionals! How to Master 15 Practices to Accelerate Your Career and have also written a series of e-books, What Really Matters.

If you are good at what you do but want to be extraordinary, then I will support you, challenge you and educate you so that you can break through the barriers that are holding you back from the business performance you know you can create. And, in the process, enable the people in your organisation to shine.

Are you up for the challenge?
