"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."

"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!"
