Dr. Freeman's International
Seminar Tour Plans

Colombo (Sri Lanka). Bridgetown (Barbados). Accra (Ghana). Nairobi (Kenya).
Toronto (Canada). Belfast (N. Ireland). Bangkok (Thailand). Singapore. Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). Jakarta (Indonesia). Male (Maldives). Colombo (Sri Lanka). Bahamas.
New Delhi (India). Bombay. Calcutta. Bangalore.




















  The Question: Do you represent an organization with the infrastructure to host or to
co-sponsor a region-wide high-impact seminar event with The Freeman Institute
or to co-sponsor a regional/national tour with Dr. Freeman as the keynote presenter?


(review some of the high-impact seminar programs two pages below)

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 leadership development and educational 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 (five) of seminar events each year for organizations that want to co-sponsor a region-wide event. The Freeman Institute's signature seminar program is affectionately titled, "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®  (Check out the other programs mentioned below...)

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, 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 organization and when/where you want to co-sponsor a seminar event...with both inreach and outreach benefits. Some companies may want to sponsor Dr. Freeman for a national tour for special events around the country.

   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 larger multinational 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 organization with the infrastructure to host or to co-sponsor a region-wide open-registration seminar event with The Freeman Institute or to co-sponsor a regional/national tour with Dr. Freeman as the keynote presenter?

   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 your organization.

   Some organizations have utilized the world-class Freeman Institute seminars as training for their leadership teams -- as well as a unique event for the region at large.

The Freeman Institute Foundation is willing to help subsidize up to five seminar events each year designed for organizations that desire to co-sponsor a regional seminar event or to set up a national tour for Dr. Freeman. Who is your organization's target audience? Youth? Healthcare workers? Senior executives? Entrepreneurs? Get the picture? Dr. Freeman can hit a bulls-eye for your organization regardless of the target audience.

   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.

   At the seminar event Dr. Freeman will cast a wide net in terms of evocative content and practical application. The day long training event will be customized, so that everyone will walk away with practical, life-changing principles and values that they can begin to apply that very day.

Specialized  Program Ideas

All-Day or Half-Day Seminar Events

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

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

These are stand-alone seminar events, but here's an idea that combines the two: The morning session of, let's say, an entrepreneurship seminar event can address the "people" side and the afternoon session can address the "practical/creative business" side.

    There are both inreach and outreach benefits for your organization:

  i. Staff/personal/leadership development for the leadership of your organization, along with the potential of reaching many others with real-world value.
  ii. Very real costs will have to be met (air and ground travel, workbooks, hotel, food, auditorium, etc). We can be very creative about all this as we develop a win/win business relationship. IDEAS: Perhaps this can be a ticketed event, with a healthy percentage going back to the organization that co-sponsors it. Understanding the regional advertising/goodwill and internal leadership

"Dealing With People
Who Drive You Crazy!"

benefits, perhaps the organization will sponsor it all. Let's talk through the various scenarios...410.991.9718.

  iii. Perhaps a group of students from a regional business school/course or community college can receive additional credit for developing and implementing the marketing plan for your specific event. Just an idea...

  vi. We also would like to give a block of tickets (in your organization's name) to disadvantaged people who want to succeed in life.

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

Dr. Freeman's Latest Book
Another "Out-Of-The-Box" Idea For Increasing Entrepreneurship

"If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand!"
A Powerful Jolt of Entrepreneurial Energy and Wisdom

Endorsed by Steve Forbes, Ken Blanchard, Brian Tracy, Cathy Hughes, Ben Carson, Rich DeVos, George Fraser, Teri Woods, Pat Williams, Roger Dawson, Janice Corley, Peter Shea (CEO, Entrepreneur Magazine) and many others. Click on cover and read an overview of the book -->



   Dr. Freeman's new book is about starting and expanding an entrepreneurial pursuit -- "If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand!" The publisher is willing to private-label this book for your school (min. 2500 copies).


   Your organization can have its logo on the left-hand corner of the cover, along with the first couple pages to do with what you want. This special edition can be financially sponsored by local corporations, placing their ads on the pages in the back of this special edition to make it a win/win scenario. More info? EMAIL


   This edition is timeless, allowing you to use it over a number of semesters -- sending copies to small business owners in the community who will then be encouraged to sign up for evening classes. Another option is to sell it for retail as a fund-raiser -- Read The First Chapter

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? In addition to doing a company-wide seminar, Freeman loves doing high-impact region-wide seminar events that are designed to help enhance leadership/personal development and teamwork.
 These larger events could be sponsored by your organization.  Email your thoughts as soon as possible so that you can get on The Freeman Institute schedule...


   The Freeman Institute Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
