The attendee reaction we received to Freddie Ravel’s presentation at the cVent Elite Meetings Alliance last month was off the charts!  His message was smart, clear, humorous, entertaining, energetic and provided real impactful lessons for our attendees to take back to their workplace and make an immediate difference in their creativity, collaboration and productivity.  Our morning audience was as engaged as I’ve ever seen them, and thanks to Freddie, the rest of the day was as productive as I’ve ever seen in the 11 years we’ve been having this event.

I had the pleasure and honour of listening and being part of Freddie’s Keynote performance in Macau. Freddie managed to very simply connect the message of teaming, collaborating and leading and inter wove it with music beautifully. This was by far the best motivational performance I have seen/heard for a long time. What struck me most was Freddie’s humbleness in all this. His ability to listen and tune into people’s thoughts very quickly is simple amazing.

Freddie Ravel was great!  He totally inspired our audience this morning and enthused everybody with so much energy.  And everybody was able to connect to this theme of music, musical harmony, operating as a team and being able to touch people with the rhythms and melodies of their own minds.  It was just perfect – thanks, Freddie!

Marianne Williamson

I have known Freddie Ravel for over two decades. We have co-created events to raise consciousness and shared the stage from America’s spiritual centers to Lincoln Center. In every one of those experiences, he exudes a spirit that weaves the magic of music – pure music – that hot, funky, sexy, classic, jazzy and pure fun into everything he touches and hears.

That his destiny would bring us his Keynote Concert masterpiece, makes perfect sense; after all, this man, sage, philosopher, composer and maestro has consistently directed, produced and collaborated with the world’s finest transformational masters, business leaders and music industry icons of our time. No wonder he brings us a new way to see, hear, feel, touch and experience one’s life set to music.  Enjoy his blessing….your own symphonic masterpiece is waiting.
