Testimonials

"Professor Freeman has one great skill, among many: he turns complex concepts into simple ideas, easy to understand and remember, without losing their depth.


I have been closely working with international diplomats for over a decade and I would suggest to many of them to follow Freeman's course. But this is not a course only for die-hard diplomats and corporate lawyers.


It is a well-rounded course which gives valuable insights and practical skills useful in most circumstances of one's professional and personal life."
