Ravi Hutheesing is a keynote speaker who builds his brand globally as a cultural-entrepreneur. His philosophies and strategies have helped businesses, educators, and over a million people throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia bridge generational and cultural divides. Additionally, the US Department of State engages Ravi as a cultural diplomat to create programs worldwide that foster cultural exchange and mutual understanding.
His worldwide visibility skyrocketed as the guitarist for triple Grammy nominee, Hanson. Their massive fan base of the earliest millennials made them the top-selling band in the world around the turn of the millennium. Ravi has performed on stages that include the White House, Madison Square Garden, Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and Saturday Night Live; authored Dancin' with Hanson (Simon & Schuster) and over a hundred articles for major magazines; and released interactive-video music courses, CDs of original music, and multiple singles. He also often serves as "artist-in-residence" at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston MA, focusing on artist-entrepreneurship.
As a cultural diplomat, Ravi first went to Russia in 2015 on behalf of the US Department of State and delivered a series of lectures on artist-entrepreneurship and youth leadership. In 2016, he partnered with American Voices in Indonesia—the world's largest Muslim population—and created a songwriting camp for millennials from ASEAN nations, showcasing how arts and entrepreneurship can bridge the most severe cultural and religious divides. These programs continue to expand globally in 2017.
