Ryan Boyles is an early adopter and technology whisperer. He leads the social media team responsible for corporate brand and B2B solutions at AMD. Ryan held several transformational roles at IBM in Research Triangle Park, spanning social media and growth marketing, community management and influencer relations, global tech conferences and technical evangelism, employee advocacy and executive coaching, branding and product launches; and once upon a time, he was a darn good front-end developer. He is an accomplished inventor with 12 software patents. Ryan received his bachelors of science degree in Computer Science from the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University. You can find Ryan co-hosting a stream show about useless nerd knowledge most Friday afternoons. When not working, he is probably traveling the country to an Avett Brothers concert.
