Freddie Ravel’s Speech Topics

  • 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 or don't 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 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.

  • The Rhythm of Success

    The Rhythm of Success is a one-of-a-kind program designed to challenge and inspire organizations to discover their untapped potential. The format is fast-paced, entertaining, and as the secrets of the world’s undisputed international language of music are revealed, full of surprises.

    No matter what kind of organization—from small companies to large corporations—employees at all levels will tune up to a better future by becoming more collaborative, productive and ultimately more profitable. This multimedia “keynote concert” experience is sure to open or close your meeting on a dynamic high note.

  • The Music of Leadership

    This presentation takes your audience on a deep dive into the role of “Melody” within music and its power as the central message to bring life to your products and services. When leaders “sing” a better future, inspiration resonates across the entire company’s culture.

  • Teamwork: Diversity and 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 four out of five employees are disengaged in their work, costing the U.S. economy over $500 billion annually in lost revenue.

    The Keynote Maestro shares personal stories of how minorities and women have opened doors to his ongoing success from being hired by Brazilian producer Sergio Mendes at age 23 to being the only white guy in the all black band named “Earth, Wind and Fire.” In addition to his collaborations with Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter, Yolanda King as guest author in Open My Eyes, Open My Soul alongside Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Maya Angelou, he’s played the GRAMMY’s with Prince, recorded with Madonna for her major motion picture debut, Evita and toured the world to packed stadiums with Latin rock legend Carlos Santana.

    Freddie Ravel drives home the message that when we embrace teamwork and inclusion, our collective Melodies, Harmonies and Rhythms achieve the ultimate SCORE—a world where human potential is raised and diversity drives organizations to gain the distinct advantage needed in today's hyper-competitive marketplace.

    Illuminating the properties of Human Harmonics to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program will help your team learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

  • The Music of Diplomacy

    “Music’s the great invitation

    For mankind to transcend spoken word

    To enhance how we think

    And put into sync 

    So we hear what is mostly not heard.”


    Those words, from his number-one charting release, If Music Could Speak, sum up the central message of everything Freddie Ravel. Hailing from parents of Latin American and Eastern European decent, his humble beginnings as a newspaper boy to his rise as an internationally-renowned musical ambassador, Ravel is a living example of the classic American success story, highlighting that our strength and competitive advantage as a nation lie in our diverse cultural roots and experiences. Combined with his unrivaled passion for music and business, Ravel unlocks the minds, hearts and potential of audiences around the world.


    For his ongoing contributions to education through music, Ravel was recently knighted by the Knights of St. John, an organization who has championed hospitals and healthcare for over a 1,000 years. In this interactive program, Ravel combines proven solutions towards resolving conflicts and brings meaningful dialogue backed by scientific data and creative musical expression to appeal to the mind, body and soul of your conference participants.


    In these turbulent times of global chaos and relentless disruption, Ravel equips your group with tangible results revealing how music heals not only the sick—but the ills of today’s society by bridging cultural divides that allow conversations for peace to prosper and inspire greatness in leaders and entrepreneurs alike.


    Serving as a bridge between legendary music artists, business leaders and the Fortune 100, Ravel has co-published works with such visionaries as Earth, Wind and Fire, Carlos Santana, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter, Yolanda King providing over two decades of music-applied-to-life successes in both the public and private sectors.

Freddie, I met you shortly after your Keynote Speech at the 2016 WBENC Conference in Orlando, FL. Just wanted to thank you for the powerful message about the importance of listening, and that the power of listening itself is the key to success. I was truly able to relate through your personal story of rhythm and your ability to tie into almost anything, and in this case business. This has helped me see how our small business leads, collaborates, and works together efficiently. More importantly, it has helped me relay the message of the importance of listening and how important the “space in between” is. “Melody and Harmony is what you sing. Rhythm and Timing is EVERYTHING!” Thanks again and it was a pleasure meeting you!
