What Francesca Martinez's clients say
"Francesca's speech was the hit of the evening funny, personal and very inspirational. Everyone singled her out and said what a great speaker she was. Her impact was amazing and wed love her to come back next year."
"In all our years of annual conferences, Francesca is the first speaker to receive a standing ovation! Francesca had told us 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' - this young woman has it in abundance! Pearls of wisdom flowed from her mouth and her act was both hilarious and inspirational. A refreshingly different take on comedy, she wise-cracks her way through prejudice and disability, using everyday events seen from a disabled person's angle, as the butt of her jokes. A big-hearted lady with a zest for life, from whom everyone could learn a lesson."
"Everybody loved Francesca's performance - she was the highlight of an evening of exciting performances. Her warm, friendly, easy-going personality endeared her to those who worked with her at the event."
