Principal, Full Focus Communications
Ryan Schwartz applies the science of persuasion to the art of social change.
Fueled by a thirst for understanding how people think, feel, and act, he is inspired by his training as a cultural anthropologist. As a non-profit consultant, he works with organizations to create concrete brand, messaging, and communications strategies that inspire action and build cohesive movements.
Ryan has worked on behalf of clients such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, Human Rights Campaign, and Smart Growth America. His stories have been told across the globe; he’s been recognized by the Media Institute of Southern Africa for producing the community radio show of the year.
When he’s not learning, facilitating, or strategizing, he enjoys exploring the vibrant neighborhoods and forests of Portland, Oregon.
