Thought leader, dog lover and serial entrepreneur, Ryan has redefined the face of social media—bringing Twitter, Facebook and other social networks out of the dorm room and into the boardroom. A college drop-out, he started a paintball company and pizza restaurant before founding Invoke Media, the company that developed Hootsuite.
Today, Ryan is an authority in technology and business. He writes regularly for publications like Fast Company, Inc, Fortune, and has a column in the Wall Street Journal. He's also one of LinkedIn's top 20 most followed Influencers and presents at the world’s top tech conferences.
Igor was the driving force behind the development and launch of the original digital product within an otherwise traditional print-focused company. Responsible for forging key partnerships, Igor has led the growth of PressReader’s B2B network to its current scale. PressReader’s business partners include leading airlines like Qantas, thousands of hotels (including brand deals with Accor, Shangri-La, Trump, InterContinental), libraries all over the world, major cruise lines, and even Uber at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Igor holds Master of Arts degree from the University of British Columbia and degrees from Kuban State University (Russia) and Humboldt University (Germany).
