This talk is a sweeping overview of how the universe, the galaxy and the solar system have developed, as well as the critical role that dark matter—matter that doesn’t have any discernible interactions with light—has played. As we reflect on cultural, political and environmental changes to the planet today, it is useful to have in mind the billions of years of cosmological history that precede it. Professor Randall will present concepts in theoretical physics through a lens of contemporary issues that work to explain the nature of physical reality in a resonating and relevant way with non-scientist audiences.

"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.

Sir Ken Robinson (Exclusively WSB)

National education systems worldwide are being reformed to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. As a respected adviser to governments in Europe, Asia and the United States, Sir Ken argues in this powerful presentation that many countries are pushing reforms in the wrong direction and that the dominant culture of standardization and testing is stifling the very capabilities that our children, communities and economies need most. Drawing from his groundbreaking books, Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative, and Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution that's Transforming Education, he explains why too many are locked into a model of education shaped by the Industrial Revolution and a narrow idea of academic ability. Urging schools and colleges everywhere to rethink their basic assumptions about intelligence and achievement, Sir Ken focuses on the vital questions: Why is it essential to promote creativity?

Is everyone creative or just a select few? Why do so many adults think they’re not creative? Can creativity be developed? If so, what changes are needed in our schools and education systems and how can they be brought about? Sir Ken argues for radical changes in how we educate all students to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century. Takeaways include:

  • How education wastes more talent than it saves
  • The three core objectives of 21st Century education
  • Why we’re all smarter than we think
  • Why we need to move from an industrial to an organic approach to education
  • What educators, parents and employers should do and how policy makers should help
