Somehow, the words ‘thank you’ just don’t seem like they’re enough. I have never received as many compliments and enthusiastic appreciative comments as I did from my peers for bringing the rock star panel to the NSA Rocks main stage. Even though the end result was exactly what I had envisioned over a year ago, until I met you in Vegas, it had disaster written all over it. I needed to drop the tangled mess I had started into someone’s capable hands and pray they could make Pheasant-Under-Glass out of Chicken —- Soup. Thank GOD Victoria suggested you, Robin. You interfaced beautifully with David, which is a testimony to your leadership and communication skills.
The session was masterful; many believe one of the best ever at an NSA convention. And you were the reason it rocked.
My favorite moment of the entire weekend was when Kevin walked out singing Take It On the Run. NSA has never had a moment like that, and it will never be equaled. Like that would have ever happened without you and your subtle suggestion in the green room. I watched a real pro at work, and I am deeply indebted to you, buddy.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart, Robin, I hope your inbox is totally jammed with all kinds of people who want to work with you and just heap praise on you. I will sing your praises for years and years to come.
Your lifelong friend and fan,
Eric Chester, NSA Rocks! Convention Chair, Bestselling Author and Intl. Hall of Fame Speaker, Generation Why, Inc.
Tastefully Simple Leadership Conference Day 2 …
Our Friday session started with announcements followed by a “Welcome” from our Founder and CEO, Jill Blashak-Strahan. Later, a keynote speaker, Robin Creasman, a motivational speaker, was our next guest speaker. He has done and see it all when it comes to meeting and knowing well known performers. It was fun to listen to him tell his stories and make the jokes about different things. Watch the video on the link I provided; it tells alot about his experiences. I thought he was an awesome speaker! He told us how we can use different tools to make our business grow and to become the Rock star that we can become.
“Robin, Please know you were a hit with everyone we talked to…..thanks so much! I especially am grateful that you helped us fill in for our absent speaker (in addition to your keynote). It was wonderful, powerful info…and a great delivery. You’re a fun person, and I’m pleased to have met you!” — Shirley Hoveland, SPHR, CCP, GRP, FLMI
Director – Employment Services, Farm Bureau Financial Services, 2013 Iowa State HR Conference
Thank you for an inspiring presentation. When I told the company I’m bring over a rocker speaker, there were some raised eyebrows and uncertainty. But you proved that we can bring learning from the Rock n Roll world, deliver the message in a fun way, and still connect effectively with a largely technical audience. The response from the audience was great and we believe you have made a very positive contribution to our conference. Thank you for the effort you put into making your presentation relevant to our audience and their unique challenge. That was the key. I personally heard some of your message used by different people the very next day! Congratulations on a job well done. I would recommend you to any company that wants their employees to build a Rock Star mentality.
Jeanne Lim, Director of Marketing, Tandberg – Asia Pacific
You did a great job once again moderating our little group. The whole experience exceeded my expectations…and it was fun.
Kevin Cronin, REO Speedwagon
I was one of the lucky ladies who attended last night’s APSS meeting. And was very inspired by your rock star magic. You really walked your talk. I am sure you receive these emails all the time, yet I want to share my appreciation too. You made me dance at the end – could not keep static with the music vibe going in the air…
I wish you a happy, successful and adventurous new year! I hope to see you again. Best of luck. I am making my first steps into coaching and training. I also want to be a motivational speaker. My niche is ‘building self-esteem’. One day I’ll be huge 🙂 …
In the meantime, I learn from people like you. Your talk was the reason I came back earlier from vacation in London. Boy – it was so worthwhile!!! I’d love to buy you lunch or coffee next time you’re in Singapore. If your schedule allows it. I’d love to attend your Rock Star workshop. Hope you bring it to Singapore or S.E.Asia!
Thank you again!!! Maria Kassova
You made me look like a ROCK STAR! I got so many compliments for putting together such a wonderful event today that I actually thought I was a rock star. Thank you for a great talk. I learned so much from your session. My big take away was that I have been wanting the Rock Star lifestyle, but until now I’ve been unwilling to do the work of a real rock star. That is all about to change… big time.
Merit Gest – Senior Vice President, Total Selling Solutions
Just wanted to say a GIANT “WELL DONE” on your presentation at Fab Friday last week.
I’m Director of Education for this Chapter for my sins and you really did educate a lot of people last week. Just as importantly, I think you did provide actionable information that will help members build their business. Way to Go DUDE!
Conor Cunneen – C.A.S.H
Robin, thanks for your great presentation to IL Chapter on Friday. It was inspiring and completely depressing all at the same time; inspiring because I can see the possibilities and want to get there, depressing because there’s a long way to go.
Thanks again for your energy and wisdom.
Wayne Turmel – Host/Producer The Cranky Middle Manager Show
“This program was awesome. Real, practical & insightful tips I can use TODAY. My clients are going to love me as a Rock Star!”

Your show was awesome!
Fran Goldstein, Gold Staff Consultants
I so enjoyed the experience. Thanks for making it real!
John Crudele, Reaching the Heart of Business.
Congrats on one hell of a kick ass session in New York. So many fantastic moments at NSA – but yours had to be the most magical. Every bit, every lick, every second mattered. Huge entertainment – huge star power – huge gems for everyone listening.
Plus, it was such a pleasure to have some time with you Robin. You are an original, filled with warmth and talent to share with all. Thanks for putting the Rock in Rock & Roll!
Mark Scharenbroich, Scharenbroich & Associates – Making Connections That Move People
Great job! There was so much energy during your session at the convention.
Karen Cortell Reisman, MS – Author, Speaker
One week ago today, I spoke at my first NSA Convention in New York City. It is a memory I will always treasure. I also must tell you it was an honor to witness the Spirit of Cavett in the Julliard Room that day. After randomly giving away my Telecaster guitar to a member of the audience, Robin Creasman, Robin immediately gave it to first-time attendee Kenneth Williams. Robin Creasman – YOU ROCK !!!
Dave Timmons, Six-String Leadership
Robin Creasman is an amazing speaker coach – he works on both the content and performance of your speech. But unlike a lot of “speaker coaches” out there, he really knows what he’s doing, understands the marketplace, has great taste and follows through. I believe he is truly invested in my personal growth and success. Robin helps you stand out in the marketplace and working with him was a great experience. I felt relieved to have a partner who really knows the business. He’s a friend and someone I hope to work with on a long-term basis.
Libby Gill, Author, Executive Coach, Speaker – Former VP Universal, Sony, & Turner Broadcasting, Director of PR for the “Dr. Phil Show”
Robin has helped me make a complete 180 degree swing in my speaking career. For several years, prior to working with Robin, my keynote presentation struggled to make the kind of impact on my audience that I was looking for. Oh yeah, I would get standing ovations after almost every presentation and people would come up to me afterwards with tears in their eyes and give me this big hug and tell me how lucky I was to be alive. But I wasn’t touching them in the way I knew I wanted to or more importantly the way I needed to. I just couldn’t figure it out on my own. Until I began working with Robin. He has helped me completely transform what I am about on the platform and just as important, what I am about off of the platform. I think differently now. I speak differently now. I impact people’s lives differently now. Robin has helped me draw a line in the sand.
A speaking career is all about relationships. Relationships with clients, relationships with audiences, relationships with colleagues, relationships with all kinds of people. A successful speaking career is also about relationships with coaches. I have that special relationship with Robin.
And here is the coolest thing….I get to call up Robin after a gig and say, “Robin, it worked!, it worked!, it worked!” For a speaker, there is no better feeling in the world.
Bill Ester, Burlington, WI “Fired Up On Purpose!”
Once every so often you are introduced to a person who makes a difference in your craft as a keynote speaker. I met such a gifted person in Robin Creasman. I have worked with several coaches over the past 27 years of being a facilitator, presenter and now a keynote speaker thinking I knew what it meant to be a great keynote speaker. Boy, did I learn something when I hired Robin Creasman this past April. I learned what it takes to be a great keynote speaker. I learned the difference between being a presenter with power point and being able to create a picture with the words, emotions and the stage as your only props that causes your audience to take positive action.
When I was checking Robin out to see if I would invest in him there was a moment of truth which caused me to pick up the phone to hire him. It was when I saw promo videos of the before and after of speakers who hired Robin to advise and coach them in their craft. I too, can now add my video of the before and after to Robin’s successful client list.
Fellow speakers, you can not afford to miss this opportunity to spend time with Robin. I guarantee it. Here are five reasons why you should attend no matter your level from a beginner to some of our seasoned pros.
Jim Jackson, The “Varoom” Speaker with a Harley Attitude, Author of “Power to Change”
Meet Robin Creasman, a multi-talented asset who is the industry leading speaker coach and video producer for professional speakers. Using Robin as a resource will have only one effect, and that’s taking you to the top level in your career. Just working with Robin Creasman makes people think you are a player in the speaking industry.
Lt. Col. Kevin Sweeney, Pressure Cooker Confidence
Robin is fabulous – if you want a killer demo DVD call robin and he gives great advice on becoming a better speaker
Amanda Gore, The Connection Expert
I’ve got to tell you – I just watched the video again, and I could not possibly be happier. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! You and Nathan did a masterful job. The key to a great video, I think, is pulling the right on-stage material. That’s why I’ve always done it myself — I didn’t think anyone else could pick the right stuff. You and Nathan did SO much better than I would have done. I’m just goofy happy with it.
Besides your skill and talent, both you and Nathan are an absolute pleasure to work with. You’re true professionals you’re both really, really good guys. I just had to tell you one more time how BEYOND happy I am with the video. You’ve got some kind of instinctive understanding of what works that I’ve not seen before with this kind of production. Really, really great work!
Joe Calloway – Best Selling Author, Category of One
Everyone loves the video! You have surpassed my expectations. This is the first video I am proud of. Messaging is dead on. Thanks!
Ron Karr – 2014 President of the National Speakers Association
As they say in showbiz. It is a wrap! Thanks again Robin for your coaching, urging me on, and teaching me how to rock! One small step for Robert, one giant leap towards validating who I am… All because I hired this wild and crazy rock star producer/keynoter from Dallas who jams with passion and class…and knows how to get his clients from zero to stardom with a little bit of rock and roll wisdom.
You Rock! Robert Stack
Robin is a video wizard. He has tons of experience in video, and he’ll coach you to stand in the right spot and move in the right directions, so your speaker video looks good. He also gives great advice on WHAT you should say… He’s a very creative guy, very smart, who can make sure that the video you get really does you justice. Robin really cares. And when you call him after all is said and done, he’s right there, helpful, thoughtful, concerned. Robin truly wants to see speakers succeed, and he helps you make that happen!
Lenann McGookey Gardner, A Change Will Do You Good
Robin Creasman is a very neat guy & the real deal. From the moment you meet him, he becomes a friend. He is caring and genuine. Robin has a special gift in the speaking industry. He specializes in speech writing, video production and marketing. He has an eye and an ear for creating the perfect piece that works! Robin helped me to dig really deep within myself, deeper than ever before and he helped me find my message. To me, Robin is known for creating perfection. He doesn’t settle for mediocrity.
Bill Ester, Fired Up On Purpose
Robin’s is uncanny in spotting places where his dynamite coaching ideas can lift a speaker’s program from good to great. He demonstrates an amazing ability to recall long pieces of a program, then improvise those pieces with his suggestions woven in. Consistently high-energy and engaging, he’s able to make a full-day seminar consistently interactive. No talking head here.
The day is a well-organized, insight-rich conversation with his audience.
Loren Ekroth, Ph.D., “Dr. Conversation”
Thanks for a dazzling program for our Las Vegas chapter. It was a high-content workshop covering everything a speaker would need to guarantee promotional and presentation success. And you are THE man when it comes to producing a demo video! Rock on.
John Kinde, Humor Power
Robin Creasman is a soft spoken, sincere, warm, music loving, authentic man nested in non-assuming comfort and loving family. He is a master in this specific niche of the speaking industry, he understands speakers, bureaus and meeting planners and hence is services are unique and invaluable.
Yossi Ghinsberg, Author of the best-selling author of “Jungle,” & Motivational Speaker
“You thought you were good? Wait until Robin Creasman gets his hands on you. Robin’s ability to package your speech or video and send you out into the world as the best speaker you can be is truly remarkable. His outstanding work ethic, talent, professional experience as a television and music producer and knowledge of the speaking industry is a combination that simply can’t be beat. The investment I made paid itself back five-fold in a matter of weeks. To boot, Robin is one of the nicest and most generous souls you will ever meet… one of my closest pals. What more could anyone ask for?”
Victoria Labalme, Theatrical Keynotes
“Robin, I want you to know what a great job you and Nathan have done with my new demo video. I’ve had several demos produced by others over the years, but none have come close to your production quality or your ability to select the perfect content to showcase. The process was collaborative and seamless, and I appreciate the way you captured and enhanced the objectives we discussed for the project. The demo is already getting great feedback and I know it has locked in several client engagements. Thank you, Robin and Nathan!”
Dennis Snow, Speaker , Consultant & former Walt Disney World Executive.
“Robin, I want to thank you for the coaching day we spent together in re-crafting my presentation. I’ve been in the speaking business for almost ten years and felt I needed help in taking my content to the ‘next level.’ I can say without reservation that the day I spent with you has been the best investment I’ve made in my business. You helped me to look at my content in a whole new way, and succeeded in moving me out of my comfort zone. After our day together, I was excited and confident that this new approach was solid. Well, now after delivering the speech several times, I’m more excited than ever. The audience response has been fabulous, and I know I’m having a greater impact on the participants. Thanks so much for your insights, Robin – and also for making the coaching fun!”

In my opinion, Robin Creasman offers the best speaker training and video production available today. I have had the pleasure of working with Robin on many projects. His guidance, creativity and commitment to excellence set him apart from the rest of the “herd.” A “Creasman” project is not a just a “session”…it is an experience that delivers the goods every time!

“Robin, You took a vague concept, that was in my head, and you made it 20 times better with your creative abilities. Your demo video has launched me to being one of the top speakers in North America in my price range. I’ll definitely use your talents for my next demo video. You were able to see the best of what I have, and share it. Thank you.
For anyone still weighing the decision of whether Robin’s end product will give you a return, I wish to emphasize that this is your KEY marketing piece, your demo-video. Robin will make it the next best thing to live.”

Michelle Lemmons, President, International Speakers Bureau
I knew I needed a speaker demo video, but didn’t have a clue what to do… until I met Robin Creasman. He took the mystery right out of the process and walked me through it step by step. He listened to my concerns, answered my questions, & then delivered a video that was more than I could have ever hoped for. And the best part is, my video paid for itself in the first ninety days! Awesome!

Robin Creasman has been an integral part of our marketing and development plan at Lutheran High School of Dallas. He brought with him year’s of experience in video development from conception to completion.
We had an idea of what we wanted but due to our limited knowledge of brand marketing Robin was able to take our ideas and give them life so that we were able to articulate our message.
Lutheran High School of Dallas will not only use Robin Creasman Productions but also recommend them to many others.
Karen Brown – Director of Marketing and Development Lutheran High School of Dallas
I came to Robin with a need to convey the heart of our work in Scotland to people in the United States. Not an easy task with such complex subject matter and a short time to do it. Yet, Robin was able to capture, with sensitivity, the heart of our investment opportunities in Scotland. I have a saying, “The second best thing that I can give you are my friends”. This is certainly the case with Robin. I recommend him with no hesitation to anyone in need of clarity of voice and creativity of touch. He is a master at his trade!
Duane M. Hallof, Business Initiatives / Mentorlink of Edinburgh
I have had the pleasure to work with Robin Creasman and Robin Creasman Productions on several projects throughout the North Texas area. It is his professionalism and hard work that keeps me recommending Robin to my clients. The end result is always a perfect fit for the clients needs.
I am always amazed at just how Robin, when given often times, skeletal ideas, takes them and develops copy that articulates the perfect message. This is the mark of a true professional who will listen and take the time to investigate the real needs of an organization.
All of my clients that I have recommended Robin Creasman Productions too have had positive results with their campaigns.
Karen M. Brown – President, BrownInk Public Relations
Thank you for all you did to help Lutheran High School of Dallas get the Phase III fund raising program off the ground. Your expertise was invaluable and how you took our ideas and developed this awesome video is remarkable.
We are also using the Admissions Video on a regular basis and continually get positive comments from everyone who sees it; our enrollment has also increased by over 10%.
Thank you for all your hard work and direction you gave Lutheran High School.
Karen M. Brown, Director of Marketing and Development Lutheran High School of Dallas
I wish I had worked with Robin sooner! I have had many videos made during my ten years in the speaking business and Robin is the best. He is easy to work with, quick and made this process painless. The video has already paid for itself in just a short time.
Gregory P. Smith, President and Captain of the Ship Chart Your Course International
I place my total confidence in his abilities and it was confidence well placed. His services are a must for any speaker that wants to take it up a couple of notches. Wherever you are in your career, I encourage you to utilize the variety of profitable services offered by Robin Creasman.
Working with Robin Creasman put my career on the fast track. Robin knows what it takes to make a speaker video that gets you BOOKED. Robin is easy to work with yet not afraid to set you straight.
He will hit you with the truth and you are better for the blow. No fluff, no fiddle faddle. But don’t get me wrong, he’s a nice guy too. If Robin chooses to work with you, he WILL make you a better speaker and help you create a video that rockets you to the next level.” –
Dean Lindsay, The Progress Agent
The Video is AWESOME! Way to go. Thank you again for your thoroughness and professionalism and implementing what I wanted but pushing back as well. This video is the absolute best that it could be at this point. I am really happy. Please let me know if I can give you a testimonial or even use this one because you are the man!
Cary Mullen, Two-time Olympian and World Cup Downhill Champion
I noticed you have many more customer testimonials on your site, and I think they are great!! I would like to add that you are also very nice to work with as a person! And…the quality of your video production is timeless. By this I mean that the pieces that we edited and included in my video, for example, were chosen and produced with an eye toward the future. So, I think another benefit of your expertise is that your creativity helps to create a video that will not be quickly outdated. I am still happy with my video and it’s been 1 1/2 years already!!
This may be another factor that speakers consider before spending their $$$ on video production…wondering how long they can use the material produced.
Best wishes from a soggy Seattle!
All the best,
Liesbet Trappenburg Windmill Worldwide, “Discover Yourself!”
