How your personality impacts your entrepreneurial success.
Curiosity. Marketing. Branding. Bartering. Reinvention. Humor.

   The Freeman Institute Foundation is the
non-profit arm of The Freeman Institute. The primary purpose of the foundation is to help provide the opportunity for world-class faculty/staff development and student event seminar experiences for all -- 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 board, The Freeman Institute Foundation will help subsidize a limited number (ten) of seminar events each year for educational institutions. The Freeman Institute's signature seminar program is affectionately titled, "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®  (Check out the programs especially designed for Business Schools mentioned below.

Is this your seat?

Here's a "real-world" example of a seminar event co-sponsored by Hampton University School of Business.

   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, family business owners, corporate leadership teams and others interested in experiencing how personal development can enhance family and business relationships. -- Email your request, with information about your institution and when/where you want to co-sponsor a seminar event.

C o n n e c t i n g   T h e   D o t s

   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 institution 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 educational institution and the surrounding community. Freeman also has a program specifically designed for the Business/Entrepreneurial Department of any educational institution.

T E N   S E M I N A R   E V E N T S   A   Y E A R

   Some educational institutions have utilized The Freeman Institute seminars as training for their leadership team -- as well as a unique event for the student body

and an outreach to the community at large. The Freeman Institute Foundation is willing to help subsidize up to ten seminar events each year designed for students, faculty and area business people.

   As a prolific author (6 books in 28 foreign editions), professional speaker and world traveler, Dr. Freeman is a seasoned veteran. He is a seasoned veteran, having worked with people in many levels from many industries. 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 institution and also the community.

   At each seminar event Dr. Freeman will cast a wide net in terms of evocative content and practical application -- customizing the training experience to include everyone from the faculty and support staff to the student body and business people in the surrounding community.

All-Day or Half-Day Entrepreneurial Seminars

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

"Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®
The People Side of Life and Business Success

Freeman has a number of interests, but he especially loves working with Business Schools (Entrepreneurial Studies) with a special emphasis seminar that is designed to help increase enrollment and also to raise awareness of the school. He loves a win/win event where "all of the boats float to the top together."

    There are both inreach and outreach benefits for your school:


  i.   Staff/personal/leadership/faculty development for a school. A certain
        number of your instructors can attend without charge.
  ii.  Exposure for your school to the surrounding business community, with the
        aim to increase enrollment.

  iii. Some tickets to be given to your prime benefactors.

  iv. We can determine the mutually-beneficial percentage split on the per-
        person ticket price.
  v.  Perhaps a group of students can receive additional credit for developing
       and implementing the marketing plan for this specific event. This concept
       prepares the participating students for the "real business world." Since the

"Dealing With People
Who Drive You Crazy!"

       school will be receiving a percentage
       of each ticket sold -- if the ticket sales
       exceed a certain number, the school
       can give the students a partial or full
for the following year
       without feeling any financial pain. An   
       incentive for everyone!
  vi. Perhaps a few local corporations
        could co-sponsor some aspects of the
        event, like the lunch on the day of the
        event or the printing required to
        market the event.
  vii. We also would like to give a block of
        tickets (in your school's name) to
        disadvantaged youth who want to
        succeed in life.



A few local corporations or a large grant from a foundation can sponsor the entire seminar event, giving Dr. Freeman his normal honorarium. Several students can receive extra credit for the "real world" experience of raising the funds for a win/win scenario. Everyone attends the seminar without charge...if the entire event is sponsored.
