I was shown favor by fate when I arrived early for a workshop during a conference and had my choice of seats. The workshop filled to overflowing capacity and my favor was Dr. Joel Martin taking the empty seat next to me. As we interacted during the workshop I did not know I had the honor of working with a conference Awardee, but in a very short while I did come to know of an authentic, caring, encouraging and positive person. I attended another workshop later during the conference, led by Dr. Martin, and observed how she connected with the audience the same way she’d connected with me one on one. I was not at all surprised but thought, “why, of course”, when Dr. Martin was introduced as one of four recipients of the Phenomenal Women Award during the Power Networking Conference Annual Awards Luncheon.
When you book Dr. Martin as a speaker you’ll not only have the pleasure of hearing a Phenomenal Woman, you’ll know afterwards that you’ve been shown favor by experiencing a positively positive person.Willie Simmons

Executive Coaching: After less than one hour of working with Dr. Joel, Entrepreneur Tashi Carr of LA said, “Instead of seeing myself as handicapped, I see myself as the big full of life person that I am.” What was this one hour worth? Tashi said, “I would lose opportunities to grow to fulfill my purpose, to have a voice of confidence. This was priceless. Worth more than a million dollars.”Tashi Carr

Diversity and Inclusion Training Design and Facilitation: As Mountain Park Health Center Diversity and Cultural Competency Director, one of my responsibilities is to ensure that all of our staff receives quality diversity and cultural competency training. Since we do not have the internal capacity to do this work, I began exploring who may be able to provide us with the training we were looking for. Dr. Martin was highly recommended in this capacity.Essen Otu
