Robbie Crabtree

Founder of The On Deck Performative Speaking Fellowship

Robbie started his career as a trial lawyer where he tried 102 jury trials including murders and child abuse cases. He spent time as a prosecutor, defense lawyer, and civil rights lawyer. During his time as a trial lawyer, he also taught persuasive speaking at SMU Law School and coached the national mock trial team. In 2020 Robbie created an online cohort-based course using his Performative Speaking philosophy. The course took all of his lessons learned as a trial lawyer, teacher at SMU Law school, and the years of studying speaking, storytelling, and persuasion.
