Expert On

Workshop Leader, Speaker, and Female Founder Anne Irene Ryan is on a mission to help students and professionals identify and convey their value so that they can boldly pursue their career goals.

Anne is especially passionate about empowering women, minorities, and other traditionally under-recognized students and professionals in an effort to close the pay gap and make STEM a more equitable place.

Throughout Anne's 20 year career in tech at Palantir Technologies and IBM, she reviewed thousands of resumes, interviewed hundreds of candidates, and facilitated recruiting presentations & career workshops around the world.

In that time, she was stunned to meet so many incredible people who struggled to articulate their skills and experiences (a potential career catastrophe)!

Anne's own journey showed her that a well-crafted professional brand could be the difference between an employer and employee finding a match made in heaven versus a happily-ever-after that never actually happens.

Prior to starting her own business, Anne worked at Palantir Technologies and IBM as a Software Engineer, Product Support Engineer, Team Lead, and Project Manager. Anne co-founded and globally led Palantir's Women in Tech Affinity Group and served as a Board Member of the IBM Research Triangle Park Women’s Diversity Network Group.

Anne is an avid amateur poker player, a certified vinyasa yoga teacher, and a moonlighting poker dealer. She is a member of Innovation Women, Ellevate, Luminary NYC, and a 2021 / 2022 NSA NYC board member.

"The students were just thrilled by your resume workshop! Not only did you teach them such important lessons for their resumes, you gave them new ways to think about the whole “looking for a job” process and helped them learn more about themselves in the process. It was the best resume class we’ve ever had at LaGuardia and I hope we can sign you up every year!!"
