2018 Keynote/Breakfast Speakers


Minnesota AFP's 36th Annual Conference
powering what's new in treasury and finance
- april 24, 2018

Minnesota AFP is proud to announce our Keynote Speaker Freddie Ravel. 
His Keynote address is:  "How Treasury and Financial Professionals Achieve the Rhythm of Success."


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

CFOs, Treasurers, VPs of Finance and their banking and financial service providers all have one thing in common—they’re expected to have all the answers for their employees and customers in today’s ever-changing financial markets and economic climate. In the constant demand to drive results, how do they cut through the clutter and noise to forge ahead when such critical information and crucial decisions are hanging over their heads…or when a wrong move can have devastating results?

Freddie shows the solutions to these challenges are within the four major principles of music. Recently commended by Eric Garcetti, the mayor of the city of Los Angeles, for creating a system to “renew the national and international economy,” Ravel’s unique approach of applying music to successful business dynamics takes your audience on an interactive journey to achieving success and clarity through Melody (leadership), Harmony (collaboration/teamwork) and Rhythm (timing) to achieve the ultimate result—the SCORE (ROI/bottom line) where teams learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

Our Breakfast Speaker is fran zeuli and his session is titled:



So many great things happen when we rediscover our creativity and live with gratitude. We’re not just more productive, we also laugh more and are healthier too – the workplace and personal benefits are invaluable. This is of particular importance given the increasing job demands that finance and treasury professionals face each day. Fun Is Good’s Chief Fun Officer will share steps, stories and a music video or two to illustrate how to reclaim creativity and gratitude in these challenging times when most of us are focused on financial results. Fran’s humor, personal experiences, best (and worst) practices and exercises will punctuate the key points of building a fulfilled and successful team.

Recognized as a highly versatile, innovative, performance-driven senior leader, Fran Zeuli has a successful track record of exceeding sales, customer care and employee satisfaction goals in multiple large organizations. He is passionate, competitive, customer-focused and skilled at designing and implementing actionable, strategic initiatives across all levels of an organization. Fran believes fun is a critical part of the workplace and as a principal partner in the Fun Is Good team, he shares this positive message of success, through entertaining keynotes and workshops, with companies across the country.
