Would welcome him back to our with open arms!

My experience with Joel A Freeman was that he is a consummate professional and brilliant at what he does. He not only took the time to learn about our industry and related it to his presentation, but he personally interviewed employees to better understand their perceptions and feelings with regard to the organization. His presentation was thought-provoking and insightful; humorous yet relatable; and energetic and poignant. I would recommend Joel to any organization and would welcome him back to our with open arms!

I would like to thank Dr. Freeman for coming to my agency and giving an excellent presentation on "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy At Work" Here are some feedback from the participants: I will use the task of treating people the way you would like to be treated. Great presenter - very engaging. The examples were easy to relate too. LONGER :) Dr. Freeman was great, it would be awesome if we could get more! This course would be beneficial in assisting all employees to better understand their coworkers and improve work relationships.
