Breakfast Keynote: “Grategy”
Lisa Ryan, Chief Appreciation Strategist, Grategy
As Chief Appreciation Strategist at Grategy, Lisa Ryan brings more than twenty years of sales, marketing and training experience to her clients and audiences. She works with organizations to help them keep their top talent and best customers from becoming someone else’s. She achieves this by teaching how to build stronger, more profitable, lasting relationships between a company, its employees and customers by creating a stronger emotional connection to the organization. An added benefit of her programs is that her specific steps and actionable ideas are transferable to personal relationships and situations as well.
She is a best-selling author of seven books including The Upside of Down Times: Discovering the Power of Gratitude, which was recently highlighted in NY Times Best Selling Author Harvey Mackay’s syndicated column (Swim with the Sharks Without Getting Eaten Alive.) She is a monthly contributor to four online publications, provides content for a number of association newsletters, and the Wall Street Journal, ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox have quoted her.
Lisa serves on the board of the Ohio Chapter of the National Speakers Association and is past-president of her Toastmasters International Club. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree and an MBA in marketing from Cleveland State University.
Who should attend:
Business & community leaders, interested community members, service provider administrators, directors & leadership, health & human service provider leaders, System of Care partner leadership, medical professionals, elected officials and school personnel.
Focusing on strengthening workplace culture, improving employee engagement, and initiating gratitude strategies (“Grategies”) for personal and professional transformation, Lisa’s down-to-earth approach and willingness to share best practices have proven to be a winning formula for her national and international audiences.

About the training: Since its implementation, C-SSRS helped reduce suicide rate by 65% over the first ten months in the Tennessee programs of the nation’s largest provider of outpatient community behavioral health care. Improved questioning using the C-SSRS also reduces over-identification of risk seen with measures that combine ideation and behavior and do not distinguish suicidal and non-suicidal behavior.
Asking about suicide risk cannot be the province of solely specialists if we are to have a successful National Suicide Prevention Strategy and violence reduction. Knowing that you can ask and knowing how to ask about suicide risk are two key messages that will change how many lives are saved and protected from the effects of violence. The C-SSRS is an effective and feasible tool that can be used by anyone across all sectors of society. It is part of the toolkit for Zero Suicide recommended by the National Action Alliance.
