Episode 11: RISE National 2022 Keynote Ryan Avery on how to take your leadership to the next level
Ryan Avery, a world record holder, two-time best-selling author, Emmy award winning journalist, and world champion, joins us for the latest episode of RISE Radio, our podcast series that focuses on issues that impact our three communities: Quality & Revenue; Member Acquisition & Experience; and Social Determinants of Health.Avery will be one of the keynote speakers at RISE National 2022, March 7-9, at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tenn. At the age of 25, Avery became the youngest world champion of public speaking in history. Remarkably, he had never given a professional speech prior to event. He competed against 30,000 people from 116 countries to win the Toastmasters World Championships, launching his career as a public speaker. He then used the same principles and strategies he learned winning the contest to other aspects in his life. His mission is to show leaders how to go from A to The in their industry.  During this 18-minute podcast, Avery shares his thoughts on how COVID changed leadership, aspects that differentiate a leader from the leader, the five “Ds” of achievement, and the leaders who inspire him to become the best he can be. Avery will join a roster of more than 150 speakers at RISE National 2022, the #1 trusted source for all things Medicare Advantage, March 7-9, 2022, at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tenn.
