Will did an amazing job for our Kansas school leaders. He was engaging, funny and on target with his message. Will is able to convey his message from his own experiences and through the stories he shares. I would highly recommend Will for your next workshop or conference.

Will Parker’s background as an awarding winner practitioner made him an incredible hit with Minnesota principals. Will uses real world challenges and emerging research to connect with his audience. Will not only was able to establish key learning and growth goals for our members, but also sited innovative techniques to help principals grow, learn and lead. Highly recommended and impactful presentation!
