About
Looking for NOT only a high-impact speaker, but also an engaging & interactive trainer that will leave your attendees fired-up, focused and wanting more? Well look no further, Cedric is masterful at taking important principles, leadership skills and disciplines and distilling them down into the most simple, yet memorable and meaningful words, formulas and phrases that stick with your audience and can propel them in the direction of achieving the results they seek in business and in life.

Want to overcome the #1 thing that stops most people dead in their tracks and sends them running to the foxhole of fear and the mountains of mediocrity? Well, that #1 thing is "Adversity". "A-D-V-E-R-S-I-T-Y" is an acronym that stands for the "Ability to Develop Via Experiencing Rough Situations that Involuntarily Train You". Cedric's time-tested formulas, philosophies and techniques will equip you to not just overcome adversity and change but also embrace the process and empower you and/or your team to become better today than you were yesterday in every way and win BIG as you reach your full potential in your area of your gifts and passion.

Cedric's mission is also to continue in his efforts to expose the masses to the Amazing possibility that's already inside of them. To Inspire, Motivate, Empower and Educate others and encourage them to live a life pushing and pursuing "GREAT" instead of "Average." To show others that education does not stop with graduation and pursuing a life of significance and a Legacy that models service to others is his main focus and he feels that this is only attainable by his written and spoken word and most importantly, letting his best message be the one that he delivers with the life that he lives.

Finally, Cedric is guaranteed to make your attendees T.A.L.L.E.R. (Think - Act - Laugh - Learn - Excel & Reflect). Five-Star ratings are super-hard to come-by in this business and he's looking forward to adding you to the ever-growing list of his "Five-Star" satisfied clients (See reviews and comments on this GigMasters page). Inquire about booking him today and let Mr. Make it Great partner with you to help make your event GREAT! You'll be glad you did. :-)

We HIGHLY recommend Cedric Crawford better known as Mr. Make It Great. He took a critical topic of Leadership and made it extremely fun and informative. And at Express Employment Professionals we have had the privilege of hearing well known speakers like Colin Powel, Stephen Covey, and John Maxwell…We would rank Cedric amongst the greats. If you are searching for a speaker that can truly relate to a large audience and get them all on their feet participating and obtaining information that they can put to action, Cedric Crawford is your man.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Cedric you have made a difference!

Mr. Make It Great was one of the main reasons our event was so successful. From the time we contacted him to the time he completed our event he was engaged and upbeat. He personalized a presentation for our staff of 1200+ over 4 sessions and never missed a beat. He took time out personally to meet with me and my other event coordinators prior to the event and worked with us at every crossroad we came to. We handed him an idea and he ran with it. We have had several staff thank us for having a different kind of speaker this year. They left motivated and ready to reclaim their passion for their job and recognition for their accomplishments and accountability!

I met Cedric several months ago. I interviewed him for our conference and I knew at "hello" we were going to hire him. Cedric was our opening keynote speaker for our conference of mostly women, over 1000 women attended the event. Cedric helped our conference a great deal, he was instrumental in social media blitzes that we did, and our radio interviews. I knew he was going to be great for our conference. During his opening he had our attendees up, out of their seats, laughing and taking lots of notes. He is not only a joy to be around he is a true professional! You would be lucky to have him at your conference or event!

Cedric was our morning speaker for our high school girls event and he knocked it out of the park! He kicked off our day with high energy, intriguing stories, visual tools, and advice they'll never forget. I watched our junior and senior girls writing down notes furiously as well as our volunteers! He met all of us where we're at and kept us laughing during his entire talk. Cedric was encouraging to our team and kept our attendees engaged. Thank you so much Cedric!

Mr. Make it Great was a hit at our event. We brought him in to inspire and motivate our Associates and he sure did that! He also did his homework on our organization and personalized it in a way I have never seen a speaker do. This was definitely an asset to his program!

Mr. MAKE IT GREAT is the most professional yet compassionate speaker we have ever had. He motivated the audience and kept them engaged. He was an awesome asset to the program. I would like to have him join us for another event if his schedule permits.

Easy to work with, responsive & well-prepared. Appreciate that he reached out to a few attendees in advance to learn about our company and sales team. Attendees included our nationwide Sales team, Senior Management team and Sales Support group. Some feedback from attendees included great energy, funny, entertaining, engaging, relevant, and motivational! Content that struck a chord with several attendees and will be applied to both personal and professional goals. An excellent way to end the meeting. And in the words of one of our attendees, we never thought we’d have the opportunity to see our Senior Management doing the Cupid Shuffle, ever, so thanks for that!

Cedric is a FANTASTIC presenter, our staff enjoyed every minute of his presentation and left feeling TALLER! It was a pleasure working with him prior to the event and he really captured the message of what we wanted our staff to absorb and leave with. As a nonprofit agency we value and strive to make and maintain partnerships and this is nonetheless a great partnership that we hope to continue utilizing to always MAKE IT GREAT!

Mr. Make it Great was an awesome speaker for our Umoja Summer Bridge Program Kick-off Breakfast. He left me with a number of easy to recall talking points that I can reference throughout our 6 week program and also motivated me personally to continue to push myself to ensure that our students get my very best every day. Lastly, he not only inspired our students but also the parents and community members in attendance. He delivered a high energy, interactive speech that engaged the audience from the beginning. I look forward to having him out to future events without a doubt. Absolutely a great job--5 stars!
