"We had Bill spend a day with our Leadership Team last week and it was outstanding. In terms of "take home value: real world applicability", this session ranks #1 of the Vistage speakers I've heard."

"I have always been grateful when I have received a speaker recommendation from a colleague or professional who has worked with a presenter and seen him or her in action. Therefore, I wanted to let you know about an excellent speaker (Dr. Bill Crawford) that we have used at three of our national conferences.

Dr. Crawford holds a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Houston and is a licensed psychologist, as well as the author of four books, which means he brings a high level of expertise and content to his topics. What makes him so effective as a speaker, however, is the way he translates this information into common language and presents it with energy and humor (in fact, our members keep telling us that his use of humor reminds them of Steve Martin!).

He brings a fresh, scientific perspective to the issues we all face on a daily basis (stress, communication, leadership, dealing with limited resources, diversity, bringing our best to our roles as professionals, etc.) which really seems to resonate with our members, and he has been able to apply this new information to a variety of formats including concurrent sessions, general sessions, and keynotes. This combination of unique content and engaging presentation style has resulted in our continuing to ask him back to speak at our national conferences, as well as his being booked to keynote at least ten of our state conferences. He will also be doing a workshop for our State Auxiliary Presidents at the American Hospital Association Annual meeting in Washington DC.

I can tell you from experience that he is a joy to work with, and has shown consistent flexibility with respect to fees and logistics, which I have greatly appreciated. If he sounds like someone you would be interested in, I encourage you to visit his website (www.billcphd.com) where you can learn more about his credentials, national press, track record, etc., and even view footage of his second nationally televised PBS special via YouTube! Please feel free to contact me or my assistant if you have further questions."

"Dr. Bill Crawford, was our Keynote Speaker at both the 6th and 9th Global Compliance Solutions' Annual Anti-Money Laundering, Compliance & Financial Crimes Conference in Grand Cayman.

The conference, is the largest of its type in the Caribbean region, and is attended by top-level management both locally and internationally in the Financial Services industry. Dr. Crawford was able to tie his expertise to what was important for our delegates, and it was a brilliant way to start the GCS conference! He captivated everyone with his informative, entertaining, and above all, relevant presentation. They truly appreciated Bill's take on "Getting Others to Get It: Convincing Others of the Importance of Compliance", as can be seen by the comments below:

"Great presentation — very interesting!"

"Excellent speaker — wish I had heard him before now"

"A lively and practical presentation"

"Informative and entertaining"

"Bill gave real points for dealing with people both on the job and personally"

"He got the audience involved. It was a great presentation"

"I enjoyed this presentation so much and it was so relevant to me!"

"What an informative approach to a difficult situation"

"Thought provoking, and at the same time informative"

"Very, very useful topic. I can definitely use this information!"

"I really liked the practical advice given"

"Very interesting presentation"

"Great Speaker — very engaging"

"Informative topic — well presented"

"Very helpful and with good content"

"Very good topic"

"Excellent presentation and the information was very valuable"

While having a psychologist keynote a conference on compliance and anti-money laundering is not the norm, Dr. Crawford's presentation was so well crafted, and presented in such an engaging manner that he turned out to be the perfect speaker to kick off our conference. I heartily recommend him to any conference planner looking for a dynamic opening or closing keynote speaker with a new perspective on dealing with others and bringing our best to life!"

"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."

"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!"
– Ron Bender, President
Texas Speech & Hearing Association

"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!"
– Jan Riley
EEOC, Houston
"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."

This was a great class that everyone who is in the law enforcement profession could learn a lot from. One of the best instructors I have seen in a long time. ~ (Jeff James)
I liked the fact that you advised us you didn't know what it felt like to be in our position. I am one of those dispatchers that is hotheaded and rolls her eyes and my voice is very bold. Comes off very strong. You've helped me to listen before assuming. Thanks. ~ (Nancy Lee Chapa)

Very energetic, full of enthusiasm. Enjoyed all lectures. Look forward to applying all approaches. Thanks! ~ (Shannon Tuttoilmondo)

Very upbeat, informative seminar. You won me over when you said you didn't spell very well. But with your command of speech, you don't need to spell it out.

Howard)

I thought this a very positive and valuable presentation. The instructor was very entertaining. ~ (Karen MacDonald)
I think the class was great. It not only helps you deal w/ problems at work but also with everyday situations. ~ (Kelly Castillo)

I truly enjoyed this seminar. Bill, you were so "down to earth" and just told everything as it is! I feel like there's a new method to deal with "the madness" of our world! Thanks so much! ~ (Beverly Meyer)
Excellent! Helpful in every aspect of life. ~ (Joyce McKee)
Thanks! A very Spiritual approach. I got it. ~ (Nancy Abercrombie)
Great! ~ (Edie Porter)
This seminar was really worth attending, although I do feel that our firm should insist that everyone attend (not just staff). I look at this firm as a relationship - and if only one part of that relationship gets exposed (staff) to this invaluable information and choices, only half of the firm will be able to benefit from it. It's a two-way street. We are the lucky ones though having had the opportunity to attend. Thanks for bringing the seminar here and making it available to me. Learned a lot and had fun! What a great combination. :) ~ (Anonymous)
I really thought Dr. Crawford was a very good speaker, his presentation was clear and I'm looking forward to find some time to read his books soon. Thanks to Lisa and Mary also for putting it together for all support staff. Thanks for taking care of us. ~ (Anonymous)
I was impressed with the material Bill covered and found the whole experience very positive. ~ (Anonymous)
I wish it could have been longer. ~ (Anonymous)
Dr. Crawford was knowledgeable and entertaining. Maybe a little too over the top for my liking, but effective nonetheless. ~ (Anonymous)
Dr. Crawford was excellent. He is obviously a very experienced psychologist, and very quick on his feet with good answers to questions. He was also very funny and entertaining. He had the kind of personality that encouraged open discussion about the problems people encounter in life. I noticed that people were not reluctant to talk about personal issues, because they sensed they were in good, knowledgeable hands. You could incorporate his ideas not just into the workplace, but into every moment of your life. It was a very valuable and worthwhile seminar. ~ (Anonymous)
I really appreciate the opportunity presented to us secretaries. I know LAs, LACs get opportunities to other seminars like this as part of their CLE, but it was really nice to be included - made me feel like yes you are part of the firm. A real acknowledgement. Verbal acknowledgements are great, but actions speak just as loud if not louder sometimes. ~ (Anonymous)
Lots of valuable information - gave me options for dealing with a problem at work. ~ (Anonymous)
His 5 steps were very good and I also liked that people gave Bill situations and asked him to respond. ~ (Anonymous)
I really thought that the biological information regarding limbic and neocortex systems was interesting, and I enjoyed meeting a couple of new people. It is also interesting to hear the different perspectives of the people that you work around everyday. ~ (Anonymous)
The seminar reminded me of the things that I, as a person, would like to aspire to be. Sometimes we get all wrapped up in our daily routines and forget how to look at situations in a more positive light. ~ (Anonymous)
I think the fact that Bill invited audience participation was particularly valuable in his presentation. Giving people the opportunity to express their own personal challenges and hearing Bill's recommended responses to those challenges was helpful and made the presentation's principals applicable to everyday life. ~ (Anonymous)
I think it was really great that we could all come together for a seminar like this - I think it hit home for a lot of people, and made people feel special and that's community building all in itself (and in such a different way from a happy hour or something). ~ (Anonymous)
It was valuable to have an opportunity to share thoughts and concerns with each other and learn or refresh ways to practice the art of self-control. ~ (Anonymous)
I thought the presentation was interesting, had a good pace and was well planned. The group exercise was fun and came along at just the right time in the presentation. After sitting for a couple of hours, it really seemed to re-energize everyone! To provide some constructive feedback. ~ (Anonymous)
Our speaker was a very nice and personable man...great choice! ~ (Anonymous)
I thought it was great! ~ (Anonymous)
I thought is was very informative. It gave me ideas on how to deal with difficult coworkers. ~ (Anonymous)
Dr. Crawford is filled with humor when speaking to his attendees. His presentation breakdown is filled with lots of valuable information that can be applied in many complex situations. This seminar was not a boring seminar, not one bit! ~ (Anonymous)
I liked his energy and enthusiasm. Great use of music, quotes, attractive presentation. Good involvement of participants. ~ (Anonymous)
Enjoyed his enthusiasm. ~ (Anonymous)
Great presentation. High energy! ~ (Anonymous)
He is a very enjoyable speaker - never boring and always open to anyone's comments or questions. Never made you feel like you were being analyzed! ~ (Anonymous)
I thought it was good and applicable in almost every circumstance. ~ (Anonymous)
Very funny man. It was a joy to attend. ~ (Anonymous)
The speaker was wonderful. ~ (Anonymous)
The presentation was 'excellent.' ~ (Anonymous)
Excellent class. Reminded me of skills I frequently forget to deploy when in stressful situations in all aspects of life. ~ (C. J. Cameron)

Very worthwhile workshop. Will recommend to others. ~ (Tim Leite)
The workshop really helped me to get to know my new team. That was great!! ~ (Haris Rahi)

Thank you for presenting this information and making it easy for the "non-psychologists" to understand. I will try to incorporate these ideas into my daily life. ~ (Kimberly Selstad)
'Thanks for sharing!' Seriously, we are in a high-stress industry and you may single-handedly have prevented someone from going POSTAL! ~ (Steve Singleton)
For circumstances relating to the topic of this seminar, Human Resources crammed this down my throat. Well, Ha-Ha on me. This is by far the best seminar I have ever attended and easily the most practical. ~ ((Name deleted for obvious reasons))
Very much enjoyed the class. The high energy was very refreshing. Will recommend this to my friends. ~ (Danny Smith)
Bill, I usually hate seminars but I have to say this has been great. I must commend you on the way you deliver the information in an entertaining way that helps keep everyone focused and the content is very informative and insightful! ~ (Don Williams)
Thanks so much for such an enjoyable seminar. You not only taught me how to begin coping w/ stress but how to make good decisions for myself when dealing with others. I have made bad decisions recently but I will try to think how I can make better choices in the future using your steps. (Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently - words to live by). ~ (Dawn McCutcheon)
I enjoyed the course and the instructor, Bill Crawford. ~ (Rob Lynch)
I really enjoyed your class. It was very informative. Thank you very much. ~ (Joe Pineda)
Thanks for a worthwhile day. ~ (John Sartori)
Bill was great and the class was helpful. Would love to here more about working with different personality types as well. ~ (Diane Walls)
What I liked the most was you never said not to be angry but instead asked if it serve my purpose in life. It gave me a completely different perspective. The class helped me to do a recheck of myself, my priorities and what is not. ~ (Carol Fix)
The class was enlightening. Everyone seems to really participate and use their personal situations as examples in the class. The involvement was great! ~ (Tenisa Mills-Sherman)
I loved your teaching style. You were great. Keep up the good work! Thanks! ~ (Kim Echois)
Once again an enjoyable experience. ~ (Stew Schuler)
Very good points about how we react towards stress. I never thought about me being hired to deal with stress. I like the Ask and Imagine parts of 'BRAIN'. ~ (Lynn L. Shannon)
I found the concept of stress being a warning signal to be intriguing. I'll try to always keep that in mind. ~ (Jeffre Wyatt)
I look forward in using the techniques like change and advice. I'm interested in the "How To Get Kids to do What You Want"! ~ (Cathy A. Rodriguez)
Excellent! ~ (Cheryl Torres)

Dr. Crawford's presentation was wonderful! I really enjoyed it and felt it to be very informative! He really kept my attention! Great speaker! His presentation was the highlight of the conference! ~ (Mitzi Neal, Diamond Offshore)
I enjoyed Bill's presentation very much. I'll be able to use much of what he discussed in my work with employees throughout our organization. I also bought From Chaos to Calm and All Stressed Up and Nowhere to Go. ~ (Cathy Coleman, SCI Management)
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. Therefore, if you have any literature/pricing for his speaking services, I would like to have some emailed or mailed to me. As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation and gave him an "EXCELLENT" in all areas. Keep up the good work! ~ (Angela Yeager, Town Center Improvement District)
I thought his presentation was great. Very useful information and a very dynamic speaker. I would have liked more time for Q&A so that we could see his theories applied to real life situations. ~ (Mary Elizabeth McComas, ExxonMobil Chemical Company)
Bill was awesome. ~ (Clayton Smith)
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! ~ (Jan Riley)
I thought the presentation was very good and in fact I would like to receive some material about other programs that Dr. Crawford offers. ~ (Jo Ann Sparkma, ALSTOM Power Inc.)
Dr. Crawford's presentation was dynamic and enlightening. It is very much in line with training that The Minute Maid Company is currently requiring of all its managers. I rated it the best part of the two day seminar. I also recommended that in the future, they move him to after lunch on either day because of his level of energy. He would be good for those who dose off. I have also been meaning to visit his (your) web site to read some of the quotes. ~ (Tom Boudreaux, The Minute Maid Company)
I greatly enjoyed the presentation by Dr. Crawford. It was very down to earth, and very applicable for today's stressful environments. I know the others at our table truly enjoyed his program. I purchased both books for sale that day, and I am looking forward to reading them. I will be on vacation next week, and that will be a good time to jump in. Thank you for the opportunity to respond. The evaluations at our table were top notch for Dr. Crawford and we look forward to another presentation in the future, wherever that may be! ~ (Anonymous)
I thought Dr. Crawford was an excellent speaker. He was very informative, as well as humorous at the same time. I enjoyed the conference, and all the speakers, but Dr. Crawford was by far my favorite. I appreciate you following up with me on my opinion of his presentation. ~ (Jamie E. Bohmann, CIMARRON)
Dr. Crawford was fantastic! What else can I say? I'm currently reading his book "All Stressed Up and Nowhere to Go". 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. Feel that we will be considering Dr. Crawford sometime in the future for various topics to present within our organization. ~ (Margaret H. Schultz, Apache Corp.)
I enjoyed Dr. Crawford's presentation very much. My impressions are that Dr. Crawford's presentation was the highlight of the seminar. In fact, I had indicated on the cards we turned in that I would be very interested in receiving more information on the leadership and team building training Dr. Crawford offers. ~ (Dwight Burcham, Paslode)
Dr. Crawford is very inspiring. I tend to be a peacemaker/counselor by nature although I have had no formal training (excluding various seminars inclusive of sessions like Dr. Crawford's). I very seldom have a problem getting someone to open up and getting to the root of the problem, but it is when I know that they may need to look at themselves and are dead set they are right....that I do not know quite how to help in the situation. One thing that I have learned, is that if you do not approach it right, that person immediately shuts down and any hope of helping the situation is generally lost. Many times, I am approached by my supervisors, coworkers, family and friends with situations asking for my advise or they are complaining or upset and I see they really need to take a deeper look at the situation. Dr. Crawford's session was very helpful in how to handle many of these situations. I would have to say the most valuable lesson I learned, was how to share with someone a way of looking at themselves in a positive way (while at the same time getting a point across). He referred to this in an example of dealing with upper supervision, however, this can be used in any situation. Dr. Crawford is a dynamic speaker who keeps your interest and has a lot of very helpful life lessons to offer in how to help others as well as ourselves. Knowing how to handle situations in a positive way... is always best for everyone involved. My heart's desire has always been to help others and I always appreciate the opportunity to learn anything to assist me in doing this properly in a positive, productive manner. One thing I have learned along the way, the act of helping someone else always helps oneself. I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share. ~ (Connie DeSha, Lamar University & Lamar Institute of Technology)

Off the top of my head, I can't think of anything that he should do differently. ~ (Dana Greer, RN, BSN (PENS, President))
I very much enjoyed Dr. Crawford's talk at the PENS conference. His speech definitely kept me awake, whereas a few of the classes we attended there impersonated Sominex!! He exhibited a lot of energy moving around at the front and using a nurse from the audience to write characteristics on a display board. These were good techniques to hold our attention. His presentation was excellent! I stopped by your display during the break and bought both of his books!! ~ (Carolyn Lee, R.N.)
I really enjoyed Dr. Bill's talk. His energy is contagious. I bought the 2 audio tapes and have listened to them in my vehicle numerous times since. I am very excited to receive his quotes via email also. I think he has found an approach to life in general that may help me cope with the multiple stressors of being a daughter, mother, wife, volunteer Paramedic, Practically full time Pediatric Endocrine Nurse Clinician, part-time home care nurse and now since the conference..... Pediatric Endocrine Nursing Research Fellow. When I start to feel stressed, it's great to have some extra tools in my head to deal with it and most of all prevent it. I could probably go on forever! ~ (Nicole Kirouac-Elke, NC)
I really enjoyed his presentation. We all laughed at the examples, but in reality were saying to ourselves, he is describing me. I think that he hit home with several people. Hopefully, we can all apply his advise to our everyday life. Gosh, what a better place it would be!!! ~ (Crystal Crites, LPN)
It was the highlight of the conference and a much needed lecture reminding all of us (especially women, especially nurses) to keep it all balanced for everyone's sake, but first for our own. Bill's psychology background surely protruded through his messages and I believe it was well-received by all :) ~ (Nancy Perovic, RN, BSN)
I gave him the highest ratings and requested he come back next year. ~ (Eileen Durham, MSN, PNP, RN)
Dr. Crawford opened my perspective toward things that I already knew and things that I did not know about effective customer service. From this discussion with Dr. Crawford, I now have a better understanding toward effectively handling a difficult customer, as well as handling my own reactions. Through the discussion I was able to see my strengths and weaknesses and how I can strengthen both. ~ (Mark Rachaner)
