"Ryan is simply amazing! WOW - Over 600 meeting planing professionals were not only highly entertained but responded quickly to his dynamic auctioneer style at our Charity dinner/Auction at the Hilton Lac Leamy!
I would highly recommend Ryan to any organization doing great CSR work. He is energetic, dynamic and completely self assured! Best of all, our people had fun and he substantially raised the bidding to enable us to raise a great deal of money for our cause"
Iana Ciatti, The Conference Publishers
"Over the past 9 years we have hosted an annual charity golf tournament, each year with a different high profile host for the evening’s festivities. I can easily state that Ryan Watson was the most memorable and enthusiastic host we have ever had. He was entertaining to watch, and was able to command the pace and activities of the evening with ease, which was no simple task considering our guests! We will definitely be hiring Ryan again, and would recommend his MC and auctioneering services."
