Co-Host of Pitch Practice
Robbie Crabtree spent the first seven years of his career as a trial lawyer in Dallas, TX where he tried 102 jury trials. He specialized in violent felonies like robberies and murders before moving into the special crimes unit focused on child abuse cases. During his 16 months in that unit he tried cases of child sexual abuse, child physical abuse, and child death cases.
For four years during that time he also coached the national mock trial team at SMU Law School while also teaching Trial Advocacy.
After 7 years as a trial lawyer, he decided to take on a new challenge. He first founded an edtech startup around public speaking for tech company executives and leadership that was acquired by On Deck at the end of 2020.
He then focused entirely on working with founders, CEOs, and executives to transform them into world-class storytellers and fundraisers, launching Competitive Storytelling in 2021. Over the past 2 years, Robbie has trained thousands of these leaders from startups all the way to large public companies to help them become world-class storytellers.
Founders and CEOs that he’s privately coached have raised over $330 million dollars and been backed by the biggest venture capital funds in the world. He's partnered with venture firms like Seven Seven Six and is also a venture partner at Antler.
Robbie is the author of the upcoming book titled "Competitive Storytelling: How to Tell Stories That Win."
