What People Say

Lyndsay Raymond 

Executive Director for Student Success (Lincoln University)

Derrick Freeland was a memorable and thought-provoking speaker who inspired our students to dig deep within themselves and reflect on their personal and professional journey. From beginning to end he was nothing but kind, professional, and accommodating and I truly feel that he not only lives and breathes his testimony but that he has a genuine level of care to support the students he interacted with. He left such an impression that students are already asking when we are bringing him back. He is definitely a speaker that does not come around often.
