Not only was Ravi an amazing speaker who was incredibly well received by our audience, but he was also the easiest speaker to work with in my 20 plus years at AASA. He honed his message to our membership’s needs and made himself available before and after his presentation to talk one on one with attendees. He was awesome! (Mar 2017)

Assist. Executive Director & Director of Conferences, AASA National Conference on Education

An Experience of A Lifetime: Ravi Hutheesing is an amazing keynote speaker. Our students, staff, faculty, partners, and leadership (Board Member, Chancellor, and JP Morgan Chase leadership) were influenced and impacted by his innate ability to capture their attention by sharing his expertise as an artist-entrepreneur and social-entrepreneur. Lives are forever-changed through his storytelling and ability to demonstrate to the audience how to transfer skills from one endeavor to another to maintain a relevant career.  (May 2017)

Dr. Adriene "Alex" Davis
Dean of Economic Development and Workforce Education, Los Angeles City College

Our members said that Ravi was one of the very best keynote speakers they’ve ever heard, and feedback about his presentation was incredibly positive. In addition to a compelling personal story that resonated with our audience, he also took time to individually connect with as many attendees as possible, which made the presentation feel even more relevant and unique to our association. He was a delight to work with and our members loved him!  (Jul 2017)

Director of Membership and Strategic Partners, Colorado Association of School Executives

I have spent the last 6 hours visiting classrooms throughout the district. The outpouring of compliments regarding your shared words at yesterday’s superintendent’s conference day was over the top. And most of the compliments weren’t just, ‘he did a great job’ or ‘I loved his presentation’ but were comprised of specific words, phrases and thoughts that you shared with our staff. I am sure we will be discussing your words and our planned follow up for the entire school year. (Aug 2017)

Henry Grishman
Superintendent of Schools, Jericho School District

Ravi Hutheesing is an excellent speaker. His ability to use his very successful and eclectic background throughout his presentation was exceptional and greatly appreciated by conference attendees. He is very engaging and unusually charismatic. His preparation for the presentation was evident. He had studied our organization and knew many of the issues we are facing locally, state-wide, and nationally. In my nearly 30 years with the Texas Administrators of Continuing Education, Ravi is by far the best speaker that we've had to present.

Inspiring and empowering, Ravi's perspective on millennials highlighted his abilities as a storyteller and an entrepreneur. By illuminating many of the core values that bridge generational gaps, he simplified tangible strategies that produce measurable results combined with the motivation necessary to start implementing them immediately.  (May 2016)

Loyalty360 testimonial

Mark Johnson
CEO, Loyalty360—the association for customer loyalty

A dynamic, engaging speaker who can charm an audience in seconds. His disarming and genuine style left a very positive impression on our audience. In a tough political environment like Russia, positive interactions with Americans can have a lasting and powerful impression. We were very pleased with Ravi's skills as a presenter and his sensitivity to cultural differences and highly recommend him.  (Apr 2015)

Information Resource Officer, US Embassy to Russia

All of the universities have requested to have Ravi back...This is so important given their relatively limited exposure to such progressive ideas. (Apr 2015)

To refer to Ravi as a speaker would be a great disservice. Unlike many who simply fly in, speak and fly out, he arrived early and stayed through a good part of the conference, meeting and spending time with members and Council staff. Ravi is a true talent and I recommend him for your serious consideration as a keynote speaker. (Mar 2016)

NYSCOSS testimonialRobert J. Reidy
Executive Director, New York State Council of School Superintendents

Ravi was an exceptional speaker to work with before, during and after our event. He spoke with several superintendents in preparation for the event and participated in many social events with our members during the conference. He also presented an important message to our members; many said that they could take what he said and make changes in how they approached their students, staff and colleagues immediately. Some even said they understand their kids better and have hope for their futures. I would highly recommend having Ravi present at your event.  (Mar 2016)

Ravi's energy, passion, and optimism for education transcend the generation gap. He captivates his audiences while offering solutions for a smoldering problem—the communication gap between generations.
