"Choosing to work with Robert Carrow has been a career-defining decision for me. Before collaborating with him, I was in a rut, uncertain of my message or even what I was offering. Robert didn't just bring his extensive knowledge to the table; he brought empathy and a wealth of experience that's tangible in every interaction.
Under his tutelage, my rates have doubled, and the feedback from clients has gone from good to incredible.

Whether you're in sales or own your own business and are looking to elevate your presentation skills, Robert is the person to consult. Take my advice, and you'll be thanking me later.

"Before enrolling in Robert Carrow's 'How to Develop and Deliver Winning Presentations' workshop, public speaking was my greatest fear. I was so paralyzed by this fear that I considered skipping the final presentation day altogether. However, Robert's unique anchoring techniques helped me tap into times when I was a high performer, allowing me to overcome my anxiety.
With the skills and confidence Robert instilled in me, I not only showed up but delivered a presentation that far exceeded my expectations. If you're struggling with public speaking anxiety, I can't recommend Robert's workshop enough. He doesn't just teach you how to speak; he teaches you how to believe in your own ability to captivate an audience."
"In my long academic career, I became proficient at speaking to captive audiences—students who had to listen. But as I transition into a new chapter, speaking to people who want to listen, I knew I needed to elevate my skills. That's why I chose Robert Carrow's comprehensive program. It covers all aspects of public speaking, from speech organization to voice intonation and even non-verbal cues like hand movements.
I got everything I wanted from the course, and more. Robert delivers on his promise to transform you into an exceptional speaker. If you're looking to captivate your audience, regardless of the setting, I wholeheartedly recommend Robert Carrow's program."
-Dr. Ron Kaiser, Professor
"As the 'Expert Maker,' I've built a career on providing top-notch expertise, so when I was selected for a TED Talk, I knew I couldn't leave anything to chance. That's why I reached out to Robert Carrow. With his thousands of hours of speaking experience, I knew he was the coach I needed to make an impact on that stage.
From our very first session, Robert demonstrated his skill and deep understanding of the art of public speaking. Although my speech was already drafted, he meticulously helped me rearrange its elements for better flow, seamless transitions, and maximum impact. Beyond just the technical aspects, Robert shared invaluable stage philosophy, empowering me to present myself in the most compelling way possible.
But what I appreciate most is the confidence Robert instilled in me. I walked onto that TED stage knowing my speech was the best it could possibly be, thanks to Robert's coaching. If you're looking for a transformative public speaking experience, look no further than Robert Carrow."
The Expert Maker
"As someone who's worked with Robert Carrow in various capacities—as a trainer, speaker, and consultant—I can attest to his extraordinary skill level. But what sets Robert apart isn't just his competence; it's his 'meta knowledge,' his understanding of why he's so good at what he does. This enables him not just to excel, but to replicate that excellence, tailoring it to the specific needs of his audience. In my career, I've come across what's known as 'unconscious competence,' where you're good at something but may not understand why. Robert transcends this—he's not just unconsciously competent; he's consciously masterful. He leads study clusters designed to elevate even seasoned trainers, and he's the go-to trainer for new speakers at major speaking organizations. With Robert, you're not just getting a skilled trainer; you're gaining access to someone who understands the nuances of effective communication and can adapt it seamlessly to meet your needs. I can't recommend him highly enough."

Every time I look at my listing on Forbes 30 Under 30, I am reminded that none of it would have been possible without the training and skills that he instilled in me. His training has made me a better communicator and a more organized person. He taught me a new way of thinking and for that I am forever grateful. I can’t recommend him more highly.”

TV Personality & Professional Speaker
"Before I met Robert Carrow, I admired speakers who effortlessly commanded attention, no matter the topic. They seemed to have a formula, a guidance that I lacked. As a Marketing and Systems Strategist, I understand the power of a well-executed plan, but translating that understanding to public speaking was a challenge. Then I enrolled in one of Robert's programs. In just a few sessions, he demystified the art of powerful communication for me.
Robert's unique approach to storytelling not only captivated me but also provided me with actionable insights to enhance my own presentations. From mastering the tone, pace, and style of my voice to crafting magnetic intros and impactful closes, Robert broke it all down into easy-to-follow steps. What I appreciate most is his knack for simplifying complex concepts, making them immediately applicable.
Today, thanks to Robert, I can articulate my ideas more compellingly, hold my audience's attention, and inspire action. His coaching has been transformative, equipping me with practical skills for immediate results. If you're looking to take your public speaking to the next level, I cannot recommend Robert Carrow highly enough. His expertise will not only help you understand the nuances of effective communication but also enable you to execute them flawlessly."

“Robert is a very motivating and inspirational speaker and coach who thoroughly enjoys helping others achieve their dreams. His methods, tips and techniques are invaluable for the serious speaker who wants to ramp up his or her effectiveness in challenging seminar attendees to go ahead and take that next step and invest in themselves. I would highly recommend Robert as a mentor and coach. In just a short time, he was able to locate my weaknesses and give me very valuable instruction on where, what and how to enhance my presentations to achieve my own professional goals. Thank you Robert, for your time and expertise. I look forward to becoming the best of the best.”
“I contacted Robert Carrow and asked him to coach me. After just one session with Robert, it had an immediate and positive impact on my sales. He then helped me totally rework my presentation and taught me powerful sales and presentation skills that were easy to incorporate into my personality style. Today my sales are steadily increasing, and I’m booked solid. If you’re a contract trainer who wants to increase sales, give more powerful presentations and reduce stress, contact Robert. I did, and it was one of the best career decisions I’ve ever made.”

“I have been personally shaped by Robert in my own development as a seminar leader as he has shared his insights on how to create a case for seminar participants to change and be called to action in investing in themselves – leading to increased seminar resource sales. Time is precious as a traveling seminar leader. Whether investing in a telephone conference seminar or extended personal coaching, any time invested with Robert Carrow as a coach and mentor is time very well spent!”
“I was having no sales success in my public seminars and was even considering finding another line of work. But I decided to call Robert and ask if he would coach me, and after only two sessions I went out and had my best sales week ever. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!”
I contracted with Robert to coach me in increasing my sales revenue and improving my presentation skills. Robert understood my unique personality and was able to tailor his coaching style to help me to be successful. On one occasion he came to a site where I was presenting, which was not home for him nor I to observe my presentation style and to demonstrate how I could improve. This was invaluable for me. I increased my sales from our first session and will continue to use the tools he provides.”
“Robert, your coaching has literally changed my life. Your core four principles have given me the tools to grow my training business. Thanks to you I’m now speaking to hundreds of mangers per month, while traveling throughout the western United States. For me, the best thing is that I am able to help people through quality training and earn a good living while doing it. THANK YOU! Your training is outstanding!”
“Robert is truly dynamic and is the best advertisement for what he teaches. He helps you to clarify and develop your goals and then stays with you each step of the way as you move forward towards the life or business you are looking to create. Never lacking in enthusiasm and honesty, he challenges you to stretch beyond your comfort zone, reach for something even better than you may have imagined for yourself and then come up with the game plan to get there!”

His expertise is evident in every aspect of his delivery—he captivated me for the entire duration of his talk, which is no small feat as I'm easily distracted. If you're aiming to elevate your public speaking skills, I can't recommend Robert Carrow enough. His ability to engage and hold an audience is truly exceptional."
— Leslie Nardini

“Robert demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and integrity in the short period we worked together and contributed many new ideas to our group of supervisors and managers. Robert is an excellent trainer and I recommend him without reservation!”
-Robin Marley, SPHR

“I am writing this correspondence as my personal endorsement of Robert Carrow and his recent assistance to my agency. I had arranged for leadership training to be conducted this year within our department. The supervisory staff in our agency had received many hours of in-service and supplemental training but the leaders had not benefited from group training. I felt it critical that my entire command and supervisory staff receive this training at the same time. I communicated at length with Robert as to our specific goals and problems. He brought a package that addressed all of this and more. Our agency grew in the fact that as the material was presented you could see your counterparts and peers absorbing these new skills as you were. Robert brought his law enforcement experience to bear but did not trip over it. He made it clear that successful people have people skills. He made it clear that this formula was valid in law enforcement as well as the business markets. I would be glad to speak to any agency that is considering utilizing Robert for future seminars.”

“Robert Carrow was selected to be the Keynote speaker for our 81st annual Florida Public Human Resources Association (FPHRA) conference and he also facilitated a whole-day intensive session for our HR masters track.
Robert is surely one of the most effortlessly competent, intelligent and professional people I personally have ever met. His passion for motivating change and goal achievement is evident in his dynamic and energetic style by which he shares his knowledge with the audience. Robert presented an entire day’s worth of motivational and inspirational material and engaged his audience without the typical “reading from the PowerPoint” style that so many speakers become dependent upon. I unreservedly recommend this excellent coach and presenter to anyone contemplating a similar workshop or speaking engagement.”
-Jack Loring, President

Rob created an atmosphere of electricity, excitement, and encouragement which has persisted since the workshop.

Many of the assistants have put into practice positive changes to enhance their roles. Truly awesome!”

Specifically, information on assessing customer/member personality styles before we try to sell to needs was especially enlightening. You inspired our employees to go deeper and learn about the member’s true issue, ask key questions, then move forward to solve problems. You did an exceptional job at addressing our needs! Our folks were glued to every word and your uplifting and entertaining style made the day breeze by. We look forward to working with you again!”

“I would like to take a moment to personally thank you for coming to the National Geographic Society to conduct your seminar on becoming better communicators. I have attended several seminars of the same topic (with different instructors) and did not get a lot out of them. When I went to Baltimore to attend your seminar, I left there feeling like I could communicate and get the most from anyone! I knew my team would also have the same experience if I could get you to do an in-house class.
Fast forward a few months, I was able to get you to come to NGS. I was hopeful my team would get even halve as much from the class as I did, as some were not there voluntarily. I was amazed that every single person in the group was extremely happy to have gotten the opportunity to meet and attend your seminar! Since you have left, I have noticed a difference in the communication level with my team! Thank you again, you are truly an excellent, energetic speaker who knows how to keep everyone’s interest, and teach them how to become better communicators.”

“I attended Robert’s Communication workshop last fall. I had attended a similar workshop 20 years ago. Being young at the time, I failed to realize the importance of different communication styles & the significant effect my style (direct) has on other people & my work. Robert is very insightful & energetic. He pegged me as a direct communicator the moment I walked into the room! He is an engaging coach & instructor & brings great enthusiasm & positivity to the discussion. The workshop was much more than I expected & this time the message stuck. My learning was elevated as a result of Robert’s facilitation of the class and the interactive tactics he uses to coach others. I highly recommend his services.”
“Robert. Just a quick e-mail to let you know I am still using the techniques I acquired. I had a redress with my superiors yesterday prior to the redress I had been listening to the CD’s about resolving conflict while I travel. The session lasted 4 hours. Prior to the session I wrote a resolution to the situation. After having discussed all of the issues that needed to be addressed, I had almost forgotten about the resolution. In my one on one with the mediator I remembered the resolution, whipped it out for her review, discussed a few changes and basically got what I wanted from the session. Now that’s not only God but reinforced training as you reiterated in your training. Again, I say thank you!”
“I really enjoyed the seminar and am sure it will help me be a better manager. It’s funny, I didn’t feel out of place at your seminar after saying something about people without degrees, thanks.”

“Hello Robert. Just a note to let thank you and let you know that after training last week I stopped in Borders Books and picked up Covey’s book. I have continued to read and re-read each day with the exception of one because I was traveling to pick up my sick grandson. Applying the principles, you taught and reading the book has assisted me in being more proactive than I have been in a long time. I see the results of the reinforced training. At present I am concentrating on a mission statement and trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. Again, thank you so much for your teaching and motivation.”

But I want to say a word about ROBERT CARROW! When I was in the Seminar room with Robert, the atmosphere was powerful and full of energy. Robert has an intrinsic desire to take people on a journey of excellence. He is an excellent communicator with a heart for people. I would encourage any company to invite Robert to do an on-site seminar. Just let him know your need; and he will excel with meeting those needs. You will want him back!”

“I want to thank you for being an asset to my life. You can tell that you are a man of GOD. I thank you for yielding your life unto him and being used to bless many of people. Your class on last Thursday and Friday was truly outstanding. When I got to prayer on Saturday, the elder’s scripture was based on the one you used about the keys. What a confirmation. You were sent as an angel to me. Not only did you minister to me in the working world, but my own personal life as well. Please know that you are a blessing to many of people Robert, and your passion for what you do is so obvious. Thanks again and may the peace of God and his FAVOR MANIFEST in your everyday life.”
