ABOUT RICARDO

A talk show host, public speaker, writer and advocate of promoting Arab achievements and social causes. For more than 25 years,  he has worked with the movers and shakers of the world, inspiring Arabs to break new ground one conversation at a time.

Creating new concepts in a pre-satellite era, he has formed a conduit between the special insight he was collecting from his interviewees and a growing Arab TV audience.

He has always encouraged his guests to open up and reveal their innermost thoughts. A long line of international and Arab figures broke the silence; stepped center stage and bared their souls under the glare of his studio lights.

He went on to interview people with great influence such as the Dalai LamaFarah Diba PahlaviNoor Al HusseinBill GatesLuciano PavarottiValentinoIvo Pitanguy and Zaha Hadid, to name a few.

2010

In 2010, he decided to take storytelling to the next level and use it as a means of creating impact. He brought together those he has worked with over the years and created TAKREEM Foundation which stems from his faith in a thriving  Arab world and his strong belief in the importance of giving back to one’s community by empowering its beacons and honoring its traditions.

2018

In 2018, TAKminds came as a natural next step in the Foundation’s strive to bring about change. By building on its singular momentum and the untapped potential of possible synergies, this initiative aims to unite the TAKREEM community through thought and action-triggering events, talks, and activities. It pushes people to make the most out of each encounter.

2019

In 2019, TAKREEM America Foundation has been set to honor brilliance in advancing humanity, inspiring the next generation of immigrants, supporting initiatives of change agents and connect impactful stakeholders. TAKREEM America envisions to be a reference in the propagation and celebration of excellence in the world.

2020

In 2020, he embarked on -yet another- media journey and launched his podcast “Conversations with Ricardo Karam”. This series aims to inspire people by giving them the impression that they are eavesdropping on an intimate one-on-one with the movers and shakers of the Arab world. 

2021

In 2021, he founded Pea comms, a coaching and public speaking training platform, where a team of prominent experts, coaches, and public speakers will join him on empowering public figures and executives with specific skills to improve their presence and communication skills. 

In addition to the above, Ricardo Karam dedicates most of his time embracing and promoting initiatives and causes, primarily those that are youth and health related and boost cultural and educational progress. He believes that culture can succeed where politics fails and can fight fundamentalism and dictatorship with peaceful weapons.
