  • Your words were inspirational, humorous, and timely. I especially appreciate your ability to communicate to the audience. Our students, many over the age of thirty, could relate to your stories and examples. Last week I met with several advisors [from around the state of Tennessee] who attended your session, and they were still commenting about the energy and enthusiasm that you showed during your presentation.

  • Your presentation on "Extreme Living Extreme Valor" drove home a message that was critical to the times we are living in. As you spoke to the audience about integrity, honor, & honesty, you could feel the emotion in the crowd as they took it in.

  • The way you connect to students, especially young, first-year students is truly amazing and admirable. The students not only respected you, but trusted you in a way that I haven't seen. Your message was profound, relatable and very well tailored to the four foundations of Camp Bearcat. I truly appreciate your expertise, knowledge, kind words and advice throughout the course of the weekend.

  • In a time when students are bombarded by so many options that it's become incredibly difficult to keep their attention, your presentation style and message quickly captured their interest and kept them engaged throughout the entire presentation. You have been a joy to work with; your professionalism and communication have been top notch.

  • As a keynote speaker, Carl engages the audience with his knowledge of the subject matter, personal interactions, and relevance. Whether speaking with a colleague, college student or someone he has just met, he immediately connects with them through his ability to understand their verbal and nonverbal communications and his sincere congenial disposition. His academic background complements his presentations very well. He has just the right mix of academia, common sense and humor to hold the attention of his audience.

  • Carl has a unique way to speak the truth in a way that communicates to a 21st century audience.

  • Mr. Creasman has a special talent that allows him to inspire, motivate and excite young people towards being the very best that can be. He delivers the kind of timely message that students need to hear. I highly recommends Mr. Carl Creasman as a motivational speaker for your next program or event. He understands and meets the needs of the students, while delivering a message that will change their lives.
    - Dr. Kermit L. Carter
    Dean for Student Affairs

  • There are few people in our profession that can truly connect with our students and I firmly believe that it was what you were able to do. . .Your ability to quickly assess and become familiar with our college's environment was truly impressive since your message was better received and certainly more authentic.
