I hired Mr. O'Ryan to speak at our annual service awards for our 220 employees. I am at a loss of words. In my 30 professional years I have never seen a motivation speaker perform so badly. I have hired speakers for this event for over 20 years and this was the first time I had to send an apology out to all of my employees. He attempted to call me numerous times the following day. I thought he was calling to apologize, but instead he was calling to complain that one of our empIoyee's left a bad review on his Facebook page. I gave respectful, but honest, feedback to Taddley only to be met with excuses. His presentation was disorganized, his stories were unbelievable, with dates and facts that didn't add up. He made inappropriate comments, including making a negative comment about another client he did a presentation for, which he called out by name. I told him he was not worth the money he charged me and he actually offered me a refund. It has been more than three weeks and I have not received it. I am not a mean spirited person, but I felt I had an obligation to put a review online in hopes of sparing another company or organization a disastrous event like ours. He has no business calling himself a motivational speaker. I have 220 people that would gladly back me up! His moniker "the shady saint" is very befitting of him, with an emphasis on "shady".
"To interact with Taddley Ryan is an experience. He is at once hilarious, genuine, witty, insightful, vulnerable, and then he surprises you with a deep vein of wisdom. His life as a child of abuse, neglect, and parental addiction has served only to make him humble and unflagging in his pursuit of wellness and growth. In his presence you will feel completely accepted and somehow ardently challenged to find your best self. Come find hope, recovery, motivation and relate-ability while you laugh so hard you can't breathe. Seriously."

A gut-busting laugh factory experience while being hit with true deep words of wisdom. Planned to be entertained by the way I can guide a conversation from hopeless to hope thru laughter and words of encouragement.

I’ve learned how to find humor in many situations, which carries over into my talks. Here are three other ways I distinguish myself from other motivational speakers in the Holt, Michigan area:
I’M ONE OF THE FEW ENTERTAINING SPEAKERS IN HOLT, MICHIGAN, LET ALONE THE COUNTRY.
I STUDY MY AUDIENCE TO LEARN HOW TO BEST REACH THEM.
I USE MY PAST STRUGGLES TO RELATE TO MY AUDIENCE.
I’m Taddley O’Ryan, better known as The Shady Saint. I come from a long line of addicts, which has impacted my life in many ways. To deal with the abuse I suffered from as a child, I turned to alcohol, sex, and drugs to cope. It wasn’t until I became homeless that I decided to take the first step toward improving my life. I went back to school, found a job and surrounded myself with people who loved me until I learned to love myself. I became a motivational speaker in Holt, Michigan so I could share my story and remind others that it’s not too late to change. I became the person I always wanted to be, and you can, too.
