As a conference host, you know you've hit the mark when the audience spontaneously gives a standing ovation to your keynote speaker! It's so gratifying to know that thousands of educators across the country are benefiting from William's powerful message. I wish all educators could see this performance.
Wow! William is truly a rock star and his story relates to education and the scholars we serve daily. The teachers at our school absolutely loved him and were moved to tears with his inspiring message. Since his message, we see more empowerment of students and stronger relationships being built with our scholars!
Prince Street Elementary School
The most endearing, inspiring story of the difference one teacher can make! In a world where teachers feel pressure from every direction to achieve higher scores, differentiate for all, and be knowledgeable in all areas, William reminds us why we do what we do. We received rave reviews form our participants! If you haven't introduced William to your teachers, they are missing an absolute gem. Book him today! You will never regret it.
Region 5 Educational Service Center
We engaged William to perform at an important alumnae event and everyone LOVED it! It was so inspirational! Everyone commented that it was like attending a Broadway show – that’s the quality of William’s singing and acting. Most people attending were or had been teachers and the content of this particular show resonated deeply. We are hoping to engage him in another event soon.

With humor and song, William weaves his personal story and experience into a motivational message that will stay with educators serving at all levels of our profession. His message continues to stick with me and shape my attitude and decisions.

Southwest Center for Educational Excellence
William provides the perfect conduit to show up-and-coming teachers the meaning and value of teaching, but also help the pros remember why they entered this incredible profession in the first place. I strongly recommend William Martinez for ANY conference, course, weekend retreat, or platform in which is positive message can connect with those who aspire to bring out the best in others.

Not at all! Although William uses ASL throughout, he is always speaking or singing simultaneously. He also teaches a few impactful words in ASL during The Power of BELONGing keynote, giving the audience another tool to remember his message.
The Power of BELONGing is best presented in 75 minutes.
Nope! William has presented for thousands in an arena to 15 people in a board room. His impact is powerful regardless of the size of the audience.
William loves to travel! No place is too big or small. International requests are also welcomed! #Passport #WorldTraveler

Access to language is a human right. The Deaf and HOH world must have ASL interpreters provided by the event hosts for all keynotes, sessions, meet-ups, lunches, or anywhere speaking or sound will occur and they are present. They deserve an equal experience AT ALL TIMES. The Power of BELONGing keynote and any other session given by William contains a heavy amount of ASL, but are not presented by him through SimCom. Interpreters must be provided for full respect to the ASL language and Deaf community. If anyone from that community is present…interpreters must be present. (Also, tell William so he can meet them! #CODAForLife #CODALove #AccessToLanguage)
