Christopher Freeze is a keynote speaker, consultant, and workshop facilitator.
He’s also fun, passionate, authentic – and the straight-shooting speaker clients love to work with.
As an FBI Agent for over 20 years, he tracked down foreign terrorists, investigated violent extremists, recruited international spies, and arrested corrupt politicians. As a result, he rose to the highest ranks of the FBI and served as the Special Agent in Charge for the State of Mississippi until his retirement in 2019.
Shortly after retiring from the FBI, former Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Chris as Executive Director of the Mississippi Department of Human Services where he served in the final year of Gov. Bryant's term. During this time he led the agency through turbulent times and helped them embrace becoming trauma-informed.

“I am confident Christopher Freeze will do a great job leading MDHS,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “His intellect and leadership experience as a Special Agent in Charge at the FBI makes him an excellent fit to guide the agency during this period of transition. I am grateful he has accepted this appointment.”

"When most people of think of 'FBI executive," the stereotype that comes to mind isn't smiling, affable, or understanding of business realities, but with our audience, Chris was all those. I gladly recommend Chris to others who need an entertaining speaker about business cooperation with law enforcement."
