Listen Up! The Key to Diversity, Inclusion and Team Success

Have you ever heard a great-sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It simply 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.


Freddie shares his personal stories of how minorities and women have opened doors to his ongoing success; from being hired by Brazilian icon 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 alongside Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy Jr. and Maya Angelou, he’s played the GRAMMY’s with Prince, recorded and appeared with Madonna and toured the world to packed stadiums with Latin rock legend Carlos Santana.


Driving home the message that when we LISTEN UP and embrace diversity and inclusion, our team of collective Melodies, Harmonies and Rhythms achieve the ultimate SCORE—a state where organizations gain the distinct advantage needed in today’s hyper-competitive marketplace.
