Motivational Speaking Engagements
Arturo Sandoval has overcome a number of quite substantial obstacles in his life and career in order to get to where he is today. And despite his musical success he is constantly practicing and striving to be better. A better musician, philanthropist, performer, and most importantly husband, father, grandfather and friend. He has been very honored to present numerous speaking engagements throughout his career, most notably working with IBM in the United States and Australia.
These speaking engagements are very intimate and truly dear to his heart. He is always honored to have the chance to fully open up and speak about everything from his childhood and being born on a kitchen table with dirt floors, to his struggle growing up and fighting to be a musician despite all odds, the journey through his country’s political changes and the battles he passionately fought, which helped him become the person he is now. But also the magic, the chance encounters, and the opportunities that he created for himself through hard work and dedication.
His speaking engagements and his story, like many of ours, is fraught by many deep trials and tribulation, but most importantly it is a heartfelt inspirational story of how he made it through, and continues to make it through the same. With passion, determination, drive, love and decisions which ultimately changed his life and have allowed him to make his wildest dreams at the time, a reality that he gratefully lives today.
We would be honored to welcome Arturo Sandoval to your company retreat, gala, motivational events, and more. You can expect to be inspired, be reinvigorated, laugh with Arturo and enjoy a musical treat to top it all off!
“Born into poverty in Cuba and held back by his government, he risked everything to share his gifts with the world. In the decades since, this astonishing trumpeter, pianist and composer has inspired audiences in every corner of the world and awakened a new generation of great performers. He remains one of the best ever to play.”
