Description of Event
Unequivocally, Craig is one of the best speakers I have ever heard. I have hired him dozens of times and without exception, his speech ends with a heartfelt and enthusiastic standing ovation. This is due to Craig’s ability to remove the blindness that we may have as we attempt to understand certain issues of our life. With humor and humility, Craig provides a remarkable inner vision that makes him memorable and so much more than a motivational speaker.

Craig is astounding! Craig was the opening keynote at our national conference and everyone loved him. He was funny, engaging, and provided an uplifting message that was the perfect kickoff to our show. He was also fantastic to work with. I can’t recommend Craig highly enough – he’s just the speaker every conference needs to set the tone for a great event!
