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.

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.
