"Dr. Crawford was fantastic! What else can I say? Wish I had the energy that he had during his presentation and even following it when everyone was standing in line getting his books. I've already presented his name to our director, who in turn passed it on to a friend of his who was looking for a motivational speaker!"

Dr. Crawford Offers Value Before - During - and After Your Event!
Not only will Dr. Bill work with you to customize his content, he will give potential participants his email address and invite them to contact him prior to the event and submit questions, and/or let him know what they want to get out of the presentation! This will not only ensure that the content is relevant to the audience, it should also result in increased attendance given that, those who feel that their questions will be answered, or that they have played a part in the design of the presentation will be more motivated to attend and bring a friend.
During - Cutting Edge Content
Because he knows that today's audiences are looking for more than just "motivation," Dr. Crawford bases all of his presentations on the latest brain-based research and always gives his participants concrete examples and step-by-step models for bringing the material to life. That's why his slogan is: "Not Just Soft Skills, But Hard Science." Of course, it doesn't hurt that due to the amount of humor and energy he brings to a presentation, his participants have dubbed him "The Steve Martin of Psychologists!"
While a Q & A section is built in to all of Dr. Crawford's presentations, we know that there is rarely enough time to answer all of the participants' questions. Plus, it is very likely that new questions will arise in the future as the participants put what they learned into practice. Therefore, Dr. Crawford will also ensure that each participant has information on how to continue to get support and advice for as long as they want it. Plus, he will also give each participant the opportunity to sign up for his complimentary, weekly newsletter that features one of his favorite quotes, and a paragraph or two on how to bring the wisdom of the quote to life. Some of these mini essays are now also being offered as podcasts, and participants report that receiving these each week is a great way to keep the material fresh and relevant.

"I want to thank you for the excellent job you did for us in keynoting our annual convention. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from the over 800 communication specialists who were in attendance. You are able to deliver that rare combination of professionalism, humor and content that will live in the minds of the participants long after the convention has ended. It will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone looking for a dynamic, powerful speaker!"

"I am just taking the opportunity to let you know how pleased we were with your presentation of Dealing with Difficult People here at Fort Monmouth. The entire class, 100%, rated the course "Excellent" on our evaluation form. It simply does not get any better than that. Student comments are a virtual thesaurus of superlatives: knowledgeable, energetic, responsive, informative, articulate, motivational; and they wrote that they would "definitely" recommend the course to others.
On a personal level, I want you to know that I appreciate all of your efforts to accommodate our specific needs. Your tailoring of course content allowed our employees to apply sound interpersonal skills to their particular environments, personal and professional. Please feel free to share this letter as you deem appropriate. Also, if you would like to refer potential clients to me, I will be happy to provide my unhesitating recommendation."

"It was awesome! All persons that attended, including myself, have given his training on stress extremely high marks. I have taught a lot of classes over the years in my field and I was totally captivated the entire day. No one was bored and no one wanted to go home but wanted more".

"I thought Dr. Crawford's presentation was way off the charts! Although the entire conference was interesting, Dr. Crawford's was by far the most useful! I look forward to buying his new book!"
"I think Dr. Crawford is a phenomenal speaker. I rarely get excited about speakers, instead I get excited about the topics. However, Dr. Crawford has changed that with his presentation at the EEOC conference. I never imagined that I would enjoy a topic, such as "Cultural Diversity" as I did that day. In fact, when I returned to my office I mentioned that I would like to pursue him as a speaker for any upcoming events that we may have in the future."
