Sports Illustrated has named Roger Crawford as “…one of the most accomplished physically challenged athletes in the world.” In recognition of his extraordinary athletic achievements, he was given the prestigious ITA Achievement Award, presented by the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
After realizing tremendous success on Center Court as a Division 1 athlete, he took his talents to Center Stage and became a motivational speaker. Roger’s transformational message gives organizations the ability to decrease excuses, increase results, and break through self-imposed limitations. His remarkable life story is a powerful example that “challenges are inevitable, defeat is optional!”
He is the host of the weekly feature Motivational Mondays with Roger Crawford, which can be seen worldwide on Tennis Channel.
Roger has been inducted into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame in recognition of his professional success. As a member of the Hall of Fame for People with Disabilities, he shares this impressive distinction with fellow honorees such as Christopher Reeve, Helen Keller, and former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Delivering a Winning Presentation
Playing competitive tennis on center court taught me this invaluable lesson. To win you must be completely and totally prepared. I learned this is also true on center stage. If you give me the privilege of speaking at your event I will invest the time necessary to clearly understand your organization objectives, so I am prepared to deliver a winning presentation.
To make sure that my presentation is relevant and remembered by your team, I have put together a pre-program questionnaire that I will ask you to complete. This document will provide pertinent information about your organization that will help me add maximum value to your meeting. After reviewing the questionnaire, I will develop a preliminary overview of my program and send it to you. The next step is scheduling a conference call to review my outline and get your insight on how to best tailor my presentation to specifically meet the needs of your team. Finally, three weeks before the event we will connect to discuss any last-minute details and answer any questions you may have.
