CEO and Facilitator for Sonic Leadership
I'm proud to share a bit of the behind the scenes to how we do what we do, and give people an exciting way to experience leadership through a medium that I've been passionate about my entire life.
Christian Tamburr is an internationally renowned musician, arranger, and musical director with performances and touring in over 65 countries around the world. He is the CEO and facilitator for Sonic Leadership and leads the critically acclaimed Christian Tamburr Quartet, featured recently at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Lincoln Center in NYC and the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival. Christian has worked as Musical Director and Band Leader for Latin vocal legend Julio Iglesias, Las Vegas headliner Clint Holmes, Magicians Penn & Teller, Cirque du Soleil, and Vegas Nocturne's Rose Rabbit Lie.
In 2009 Christian was invited to speak on leadership as a keynote for the Central Florida 4 under 40 awards. It was this event that led him to further develop Sonic Leadership, revealing attributes of leadership a band leader uses when performing on stage and relating it to a corporate audience. "I have spent my entire career working with some of the most talented musicians around the world (sometimes not even speaking the same language) and have been able to drive them to work together, communicate together, create together and bring that hard work out to our audiences." Musicians work in an analog environment, relying not only on their individual skills and talent, but being able to collaborate, in real time as a high functioning team to reach specific performance goals. Sonic Leadership was founded in 2010 and has since presented its message to companies around the globe. "I'm proud to share a bit of the behind the scenes to how we do what we do, and give people an exciting way to experience leadership through a medium that I've been passionate about my entire life."
Christian maintains a busy performance schedule bouncing between Sonic Leadership presentations at companies like GOOGLE and Cisco, and headlining at the Newport Jazz Festival or Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in NYC. As a special guest with Dave Brubeck, private concerts for basketball legend Micheal Jordan or Julia Roberts, Christian now 37 years old, continues to grow his company to new heights, sharing his love for music and leadership.
