Speaking & Training

I promise to entertain and educate your audience!

I frequently give speeches to restaurant associations, corporate restaurant groups and vendor hosted events.  All talks are customized for your event theme to reinforce your goals… but the main focus of my speeches and training are about improving restaurant operations. 

My Name is Ryan Gromfin!  I love to work with restaurants and organizations that are not just interested in growing revenue and increasing profits, but exceeding customers’ expectations and improving the lives of their team members. For over 5 years I have been consulting with restaurant owners all over the world, on 6 of the 7 continents (are there even restaurants in Antarctica)?  

 I would be honored to discuss how I might be able to exceed you and your guests’ expectations as a keynote or breakout speaker at your next event!

“The Restaurant Boss was amazing. Ryan was engaging, informative and helpful.”

“Ryan entertained our audience and moved them with actionable strategies that have already shown improvements in our operators bottom lines. I would highly recommend him for your next event or to work personally with your brand.”

Ruby’s GM Conference

I presented a 90-minute keynote to all the mangers and executive team teaching them my 5-step feedback formula.  The formula teaches a way for everybody to communicate quickly and effectively either manager to line level or line level to managers.  The feedback formula encourages positive feedback and in a quick real-time manner. 

I had the privilege of having Ryan lead a break out session for our GMs at our annual conference. One of the items our team had been struggling with is connecting with the ‘younger’ generation and also having tough conversations and holding them accountable. Ryan put together a comprehensive workshop that gave the managers tangible tools and a step-by-step process on how to improve communication and make connections. Ryan has an amazing presence, charisma, and ability to energize his audience. Our team walked away from the session with a great new outlook and I am seeing his methods being used today as a result.

I would highly recommend using Ryan for your organization and I am confident he can provide a fresh perspective on the many complex facets of the restaurant business.

BPAA – Bowling Proprietors Association of America

I presented a 90-minute breakout session to bowling center owners and operators revealing the Foundation to a Lifetime of Restaurant Success.  After working with and studying hundreds of restaurants across the word, I have discovered that there are 5 habits all highly successful restaurants share.  There is a formula for success and those who chose to follow it will be rewarded with the benefits.  Those who don’t will continue to struggle!
