With an unparalleled career that has consistently transcended the boundaries of music, culture and thought leadership, Freddie Ravel toured with Brazilian master Sergio Mendes, directed the legendary band that bridged black and white America - Earth, Wind and Fire, performed on the silver screen with the Queen of Pop - Madonna, rocked stadiums with Afro-Latin-Blues-Rock icon Carlos Santana, performed the Grammys with Prince, cut tracks with Kanye and led the teams behind J. Lo, Jimmy Kimmel and Lady Gaga to become the “Expert’s Expert” on multi-generational integration.

 

As an author, Freddie’s published works with Deepak Chopra on how music and thought cannot exist without silence illuminated that the “pause between the notes” is essential for effective communication. Highlighting the power of listening - whether to clients, colleagues or the signals that nature sends us - would lead to an invitation from the family of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to be a featured author alongside Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali and Robert Kennedy Jr. in the book, Open My Eyes, Open My Soul.

 

Freddie would later be dubbed the “Keynote Maestro” by the City of Los Angeles for his groundbreaking Life In Tune™ system to “renew the national and international economy.” In constant demand to bring audiences in tune around the world, his clients include IBM, Toyota, NASA, Apple, Blue Cross Health, Google and Prudential Financial Services who call his “ideal balance of Entertainment and Content” essential for businesses and entrepreneurs to transform from dissonance to harmony.

* Getting in Tune with (ESG) Environmental, Social, and Governance

As we enter this decisive decade, the urgency for companies to move toward the issues of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is greater than ever. However, many organizations either don’t acknowledge the need nor have a clear approach to help guide them, leaving them out of sync and out of tune with their employees, colleagues and customers. ESG is often viewed as just sustainability and investments, but it’s much more than that – and includes a host of areas ranging from workforce diversity and inclusion to better treatment of workers. So how to get to good governance? First, it’s important to listen – a vital skill top musicians and business leaders share. In this revealing and high-energy presentation, Ravel unlocks the secrets to this keystone of all communication, helping your audience understand the unique parallels between music and business while gaining the ability to cut through the noise and achieve clarity. This fun, interactive experience will help leaders understand what disruption really sounds like, and then reveal fresh techniques to overcome adversity and get in harmony with the new corporate social responsibilities.

Teamwork:  The Power of Human Harmonics

Have you ever heard a great sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup Polls reveal that 4 out of 5 employees are disengaged in their work costing the U.S. Economy over $500 billion per year in lost revenue. In addition, passive listening is so common in our culture that people remember only half of what they hear - even moments after they have heard it. Illuminating the properties of Harmony to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program helps teams learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative
success.
