~ High Impact Seminar Events ~


    "I am open to conducting one of two region-wide seminar events"
                                                                                       -- 100,000 Blessings, Joel

    1. "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!" -- a proven and very popular leadership/teamwork/staff and personal development seminar.
    2. "IGNITE (or re-ignite) Your Entrepreneurial Journey!" -- a region-wide seminar addressing the entrepreneurial journey entitled,  based upon my latest book ( see more below).



    The Freeman Institute Foundation is the non-profit arm of The Freeman Institute. The primary purpose of the foundation is to provide educational/inspirational resources (books, DVDs) and also to help subsidize open-registration, world-class educational and entrepreneurial  workshop experiences for qualifying organizations -- regardless of age, race, class or religious affiliation --  who would be unable to afford Dr. Freeman's regular, general market fees for such training. Based upon the recommendation of Dr. Freeman and The Freeman Institute Foundation board,  will help subsidize a limited number (ten) of seminar events each year. The Freeman Institute's signature seminar program is affectionately titled, "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®.

Is this your seat?

    Dr. Freeman rarely facilitates open registration seminars, but when he has, the seminars typically attract many small business owners, non-profit leadership teams, government workers, faith-based leadership teams and others interested in experiencing how personal development can enhance family and business relationships. The Freeman Institute Foundation also helps to subsidize a specific number of seminar events each year for highly motivated urban young adults (13-29).  -- Email your request, with information about your organization and when/where you want to co-sponsor a seminar event. Near the bottom of this page, watch Dr. Freeman in action.

international seminars (in Colombo, Sri Lanka).

Dr. Freeman has worked with over the years.

Connecting The Dots

   Basic Thesis:   We all are different. Some of us are thinkers, others are doers; some are passive, still others are aggressive. Most people come to work with pretty good intentions, but we get on each other’s nerves just by being ourselves. In the every-day stress of the work environment, the tiniest issues can escalate. And soon we are fighting about the way we are fighting, instead of dealing with the real issues. People do not respond to our intentions. They respond to our behavior.

   Studies show that 15% of one's career and financial success is dependent upon technical competence, while 85% of one's success is dependent upon interpersonal skills.

   Whether an individual flips hamburgers at a fast food restaurant or occupies a mid level position of a Fortune 500 company, Freeman's passion is to enhance the "promotability potential" of people of all ages, shapes, sizes and colors. In his seminars Dr. Freeman blends a sense of humor and personal vulnerability with sharp wit and practical concepts to reach a broad audience.

How You Can Participate In This Project:


   The Question: Do you represent an educational, faith-based and/or business organization with the infrastructure set up to host a co-sponsored area-wide open-registration seminar event with The Freeman Institute?

   This is a very workable program. Email us or call us (cell: 410.991.9718) for specific information on how these seminar events can benefit you, your organization and community.

T E N   "It Takes A City"   S E M I N A R   E V E N T S   A   Y E A R

   Check out the faith-based portal of The Freeman Institute if you represent such an organization. Some faith-based organizations have utilized The Freeman Institute seminars as training for their leadership team -- as well as a unique approach for

community outreach to business professionals. Both inreach and outreach benefits! The Freeman Institute Foundation is willing to help subsidize up to ten "It Takes A City" seminar events each year.

   As a prolific author (6 books), retired chaplain (19 yrs) and pastor (18 yrs), Dr. Freeman is a seasoned veteran. He is virtually unshockable when it comes to the ups and downs of working in a faith-based environment. Freeman has made himself available to facilitate such seminars, but he wants to make sure that each event is successful -- hosted at a venue large enough to make an impact upon the community.

   At each seminar event Dr. Freeman will cast a wide net in terms of content -- customizing the training experience to include everyone from small business owners, family-owned enterprises and government workers to family relationships, faith-based and corporate leadership teams.

"Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®
The People Side of Life, Work and Family

"IGNITE (or re-ignite) Your Entrepreneurial Passion!"
If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand

Dr. Freeman has a number of interests, but as a former pastor/chaplain,
he especially loves working with Faith-Based organizations...

Perhaps this event can be sponsored through one of the ministries
at your church. Here are the inreach and outreach benefits:


1. Excellent, world-class staff development for the church senior leadership team (attend for free). Using personal vulnerability and evocative content, Dr. Freeman will share leadership/personal development principles throughout the day that will positively impact the church leadership team. And perhaps an outreach to other church leadership teams in the region.
2. Perhaps a ministry within the church (e.g. lay counseling or men's ministry) could provide the advocacy for this event, viewing it as a fund-raiser for them. We will gladly set aside a block of tickets for them.  Everyone will want to attend:  musicians, nursery workers, artists, maintenance, security, kitchen help, teenager, teachers, board members, trustees, elders, etc. The sponsoring ministry within the church will get a good percentage of every verified ticket they sell to church members and others in the community. 
3. Some people are reticent about attending a church, but will attend a personal development/leadership seminar. This can be viewed as a unique outreach to established small business owners/associates, government workers and budding entrepreneurs in the community.

4. Other churches in the region can have a similar fundraiser...a healthy percentage of all verified ticket sales through their church.

"Dealing With People
Who Drive You Crazy!"

Watch Dr. Freeman (6 minutes)

5. We'd love to set aside a block of tickets (in the name of your church) for underprivileged people who want to be successful. You can determine the recipients of the those tickets.

5. A ministry (youth?) within the church can develop bag/box lunches for participants. Something simple (e.g. choice of turkey or ham wrap, choice of sodas, chips, small bag of cookies). The sale of these lunches can be a built-in fund-raiser, with the total proceeds from those lunches going to that ministry. People can pre-order a lunch so that the number of lunches to prepare can be pre-determined. It's a better fund raiser than any car wash I have seen!


6. AN ALTERNATIVE IDEA: A few local corporations can sponsor the seminar event, giving Dr. Freeman his normal honorarium. Everyone attends the seminar for free.


To give you an idea as to how all of this can work, feel free to check out the website about a similar large seminar event done in Barbados --



   Do you have a large group of motivated people who would be willing to experience a half-day or all-day seminar experience with Dr. Freeman? Email your thoughts as soon as possible so that you can get on The Freeman Institute schedule...
