"While the world is filled with people who have had successes in their lives, it is a short list of those who can help others achieve their goals and dreams.  In my life, Don Freda is at the top of that list.  His impact on my achievements both personally and professionally are substantial and real.  ANY time spent with Don is valuable and I encourage you to find out why."

"Don is a great entrepreneur and has a wealth of business experience. I have worked with him and attended many of his seminars and training programs. What has always been amazing to watch is the affect he has on people. Whenever I encounter people who worked with him at Vector, they always speak so highly and fondly of him. He is a strong speaker and teacher. I have had many break-through moments listening to Mr. Freda...he is truly inspirational."

"I have known Don for over 50 years. We were athletes together in High School and I have worked with him in several capacities and structures through the years including work I did for him while he ran Vector. I have two advanced degrees and a career in HR at a Fortune 500 company as well as over a decade in my own consulting practice. I can honestly say that he is one of the most insightful and inspirational speakers I have every worked with. He is a man of integrity, intelligence and inspiration."

"I had the pleasure of attending one of Mr. Freda's training seminars many years ago and I can honestly say that I still draw upon things he taught me in my daily work today. What was great about learning from Don is that he puts things in terms that you can understand and USE. I can say without hesitation that if you want to improve yourself and your results, bring Don Freda into your organization and watch him work his magic."

 I worked directly with Mr. Freda several years ago and I still utilize many of the skills and knowledge I learned from him. He is a vast reservoir of success ideas and knows so much about people. I learned how to access a whole other level of performance from Mr. Freda. He is a great mentor and his success in helping others succeed is well documented."

I've known Don Freda personally since 2011, and  have had the opportunity to work with him on various projects. Don is a great communicator with natural story telling abilities.  His method of using everyday examples that everyone can relate to will hold your interest, guaranteed! Don is a very well rounded intellectual, that does not seem detached but rather has the ability to connect with everyone. As part of a high school mentoring program that I facilitate, I had young men and women listen to Don's trainings and they were captivated. I often describe Don as "your favorite teacher."  Working with Mr. Freda will undoubtedly be a highlight in your career."

"I worked very closely with Mr. Freda for many years and coordinated Vector conferences with hundreds of managers from across the country in attendance. Don has a depth of knowledge and understanding that is very rare. People respond to him strongly and he has a way of helping people reach their full potential. I highly recommend to anyone who gets a chance to work with Don - do so! You'll be very glad you did."

"I speak for a living to people in the hospitality industry in the US and internationally, and I’ve watched and admired Don’s incredible career for decades. Thankfully, his energy, knowledge and desire to help others is as impressive today as it has ever been. Because of the shear numbers of  lucky people, myself included, that have benefited from his personal coaching, I urge you to take any opportunity you may have to work with him. We can all learn from experience, but that way is usually costly, time-consuming, and painful. The better way to learn is by having mentors who have been there and done a whole lot of that, and who are willing and able to help you accelerate your path to success. Working with Mr. Freda will help you embrace the words of English author George Eliot who said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been!"

"I have known Don Freda for over 6 years. Don was the single reason I took a job with a company called CareerTV, where he was doing some consulting work for the CEO at the time. I didn’t have as much experience as the other applicants but Mr. Freda saw something in me and gave me a shot. With Don's training as my foundation I became the top earning sales rep for the company. Don is well grounded and a dedicated individual who takes his role as mentor and leader very seriously. His entrepreneur skills are second to none. Don is the first person I would reach out to, not only for Professional but personal advice as the guy is extremely attentive and insightful. Plus, since I do acting on the side I think it's way cool that He is an independent film producer. All I can tell you is that if you get a chance to tap into Don's vast experience it will undoubtedly help you in your life and career."

..................................................................................................................................................."Having played football with Don in High School I know him to be a tenacious and determined individual.  Many years later my colleague Eleanor Pomante and I were struggling working for a company that did not meet our expectations.  Don suggested we break off and start our own company and with his help and guidance we did, and we have never looked back.  It was not something we would have considered but Don and his son Don III helped us every step of the way, forming the company, developing the business plan.  Their ideas and our hard work set us up for success and it has been wonderful working for ourselves and we have Don to thank for all our accomplishments. Don never wanted any compensation or credit for helping us launch our own company and it gives me great pleasure to be able to endorse him now.  I can honestly say that I never met anyone that knows as much about business and about success as Don Freda."

"I have known and interacted with Don Freda since the early 70s. We came to work closely together in the mid-eighties and we became good friends and colleagues. Don is an excellent teacher and trainer and he can help anyone achieve excellence. If you go by results, he is among the most accomplished I have ever met- not because of $billions inspired in a business that he was directly responsible for creating nor by the 100’s of millionaires that credit their growth directly or indirectly to his training and inspiration - but - by the many lives of both men and women that are making a huge impact in their families and their communities that will be influenced positively for generations. I can hardily endorse working with Mr. Freda for anyone who wants to achieve more in their career or in their life. Don has a way of helping us see our own potential and he offers many specific ideas for improved performance.”

"I have had the blessing of a couple key mentors in my business career. I am happy to say that I got to work with Mr. Freda very closely for many years. During that time, I learned a great deal from Don in many facets of business and in life. I know that Don has had a permanent and lasting impact on thousands of people in his career. One of his key skills is the ability to boil things down to what really matters. There is no doubt in my mind that anyone who engages with the "Freda Philosophy" will benefit and it will help you to excel."

"Very few individuals achieve success, personally or professionally, without the influence of key people in their lives.  Whether an inspiring and engaging parent, high school teacher, college professor, coach, spiritual leader or business mentor, these people all share one thing in common; a sincere belief in others potential and a real passion to help them achieve their goals and dreams.  Don Freda is one such leader. I was blessed in my early professional life to hear firsthand Don's business philosophy's,  more importantly I witnessed them in real life.  Don is a leader inspired by others success breakthroughs, principled in what he believes, willing to walk the talk, and he demonstrates a level of integrity and humility rarely found in accomplished professionals today.  I'm extremely grateful for my opportunity to learn from this remarkable individual and I strongly endorse any opportunity you may have to work with him as well."

"We worked with Don a few years ago through CUC Global. From a dead start he quickly built an entire sales program which produced thousands of new customers for us. This included an effective recruiting program and a thorough, professional and highly productive training program - his training was great. Don has a way of explaining things and guiding people to success that is second to none."

"I have known Don Freda since we were 10 years old (over 50 years!). Don hired me in 1975 as he was launching Commercial Utility Consultants and he gave me a piece of the business. We worked directly and closely for many years and laid the foundation for our company to become the success that it is today. Among other things, Don taught me how to sell (which I had never done before) which has led to our company serving over 10,000 corporate clients. We have remained close friends (including many basketball games at the Freda Arena in years past) and colleagues and CUC has used Mr. Freda as a consultant on many occasions. Exposure to Don's thinking, philosophy and training will not only be enjoyable, it will be tremendously beneficial."
