Presenter Bio

Whether speaking in front of thousands of people or coaching a client one-on-one, Jason Freeman has a unique gift to both inspire and guide his audience to recognize the best within themselves and take a step closer toward the goals and dreams they desire.
Aided by a speech impediment, Jason exemplifies the awesome possibility of turning limitations into leverage that, with persistence, can turn defeat into triumph. He has shared the stage with well-known speakers in business, education and (dis)ABILITY communities around the country and would love to help you or your audience make their goals actionable and attainable.


Mike has gained a wealth of professional experiences and insights that he now shares with others through his consulting venture. He concluded a 30-year career in Blount County Schools – nestled between Knoxville, TN, and the Great Smoky Mountains.
Over the years, he has served as a Gifted teacher and a Special Education and Title Administrator. He spent five years as an Assistant Director of Schools and over 20 years as a building-level administrator, including many as a middle school Principal.
Mike is a first-generation college graduate from a rural, working-class factory town. His early years and professional career have also given him experiences and a passion for working with the economically disadvantaged. His accent is authentic, by the way.
