A Story Every Student Needs to Hear

From Bullied Kid to National Champion

When Matt was a kid he was made fun of for being different and riding BMX.  In fact, he almost quit BMX altogether after an intense bullying situation at the local BMX track left him fearing for his safety.

Determined to make his dream come true, Matt didn’t give up and qualified for the largest BMX competition in the world, The X Games.  However, disappointment struck hard as Matt finished in last place.

Using the “Never Give Up” attitude he learned as a kid, Matt worked harder than ever, eventually becoming the national champion.  He will show your kids that sometimes our biggest failures can turn into our greatest victories.

Matt will empower your kids to turn their biggest challenges into their greatest victories.

We had Matt Wilhelm perform a virtual assembly for us this year. We have had Matt perform live in school previously, so we knew he was talented and shared a positive message, but his virtual performance exceeded our expectations. His tricks and personality engaged our students and his message was... on target, encouraging our students to have a growth mindset and to be kind to each other. I encourage you to invite Matt to your school. We will have him back to our school in the future.read more

Matt recorded a virtual assembly for our school in Feb 21. He and I exchanged several emails throughout the process. He was responsive, courteous, professional, and not pushy. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. He put together a fantastic product, incorporating videos of our... students asking him questions. The video was also unique to our assembly. He didn't use a canned video that he made for all his customers- that part really impressed me. He tricks were captivating and the students AND teachers were mesmerized. It was so great, kids wanted to watch it multiple times (giving parents 45 minutes of quiet each time!). His messaging was also timely and important for kids to hear.Members of our PTA and teachers/principal shared wonderful feedback for his performance and messaging with me. I was thanked a bunch by parents for finding such an exciting assembly. Parents told me their kids loved it and watched it repeatedly; parents also told me they loved the messaging (one parent said, "how special and important his message about finding one’s special thing and just doing it. Very meaningful."The principal told me she received great feedback from the teachers.I would HIGHLY recommend Matt for your next assembly, whether virtual or in-person!read more

I am the Assembly Coordinator for our PTO. With the need for virtual assemblies this year we are so happy to have found Matt's BMX show! Our elementary school is grades K-4 and our students all watched last week! I have heard from many parents saying their child thought it was such a cool video and... really enjoyed it! My son had his older brother watch too! Such a great positive, kindness, and anti-bullying message! I also touched base with our School Administration and they said it had great feedback from the teachers and that it really held the attention of the kids. I watched of course and thought the message was clear and personable. I also think the addition of our schools students gave it such a personal touch in a time where we can't hold assemblies in person. I also liked the addition of Matt's children in the video! Those were such cute segments! My son was laughing so hard during the jumping stuff section! I would highly recommend this program for your school or group!read more

Our students loved Matt Wilhelm’s virtual BMX assembly! Matt customized the show for our kindness week, and it was a wonderful way to kick off the week. Students were thoroughly engaged with the incredible BMX tricks and skills, and all the show had to offer.“My kids are in heaven watching this... amazing assembly!” one of our teachers shared with me during the performance. “Their huge smiles fill my heart!”Additionally, Matt’s thought-provoking messages on kindness, character and perseverance allowed teachers to engage students in meaningful discussion after the show. Beyond this, the show brought a special joy to our students, who have been in remote learning for much of the school year due to COVID. We were so grateful to have the opportunity to bring Matt's positive energy to our students via his virtual assembly.Behind the scenes, Matt was responsive, professional, highly organized, and very kind to work with. He even took the extra time to incorporate pre-recorded questions from select students and our principal, which was a nice, personalized touch. In this season of careful budgeting and remote learning, the virtual format provided a fantastic option to bring a show of this caliber to our students. I give my highest recommendation for Matt Wilhelm’s virtual BMX assembly, with the hopes that you could bring the Matt Wilhelm BMX assembly to your school live!read more

The BMX stunts and tricks were highly engaging for the students. Matt's message of perseverance in pursuit of your dreams and education being a key... to future success were well integrated into the presentation. Additionally, Matt gave a personal story about his experience with bullying and how students can be heroes for each other.

He also was very flexible and worked with my district to find a way to do the assembly that worked for us.Due... to COVID, we did the assembly virtually. As any educator knows, it is very difficult to engage kids virtually but Matt succeeded! Our students were engaged and truly enjoyed the performance. In addition, it was clear through the after assembly survey and conversations with their teachers that they understood and took in the positive character messages being conveyed throughout the performance.Thank you again for a wonderful assembly during a difficult time!read more

Matt Wilhem’s virtual BMX stunt show was an exciting addition to Red Ribbon Week at our school and appealed to boys, girls, parents, and faculty! Matt has created a truly unique show with a variety of elements that keep viewers engaged and talking about the show for days. Matt covers a variety of... topics from safety, bullying, nutrition, drugs, persistence, and resilience. All of these positive messages are woven in between segments of Matt performing some truly astounding tricks from multiple camera angles. The glow biking finale had everyone oohing and aahing. Matt was easy to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend Matt’s show for anyone looking to reinforce core values while also providing a gem of entertainment.read more

Matt made the process in organizing the event seamless and even... embedded video clips of students into the virtual assembly.

Due to COVID our school was 100% remote this year and we booked Matt Wilhelm to do a virtual assembly for us. Not knowing too much of what to expect for a virtual show and how the kids would react we were blown away and I would 100% book this show again. All our students were entertained the... entire 45 minutes. He had a mix of stunts, Q&A and positive message about bullying, perseverance, and teaching kindness. The way he explained bullying and practicing safety was amazing - he really relates well to this age group. We thank Matt for sharing his amazing show with our school!read more

The assembly was well organized, entertaining, and personalized to address our school's focus. Matt involved our students and presented a meaningful message in a memorable way.

Matt Wilhelm recently did a virtual School Assembly for my children's school district. It was his first virtual assembly, but you would not have known it! It was executed perfectly and kept the laser-focused attention of my 5 and 7 year old, which is not easy to do over a computer screen. His BMX... tricks were too cool for words, but the message of empowerment and resilience is what really moved me as a parent. Matt seamlessly delivered that message through a Q&A series, so it didn't feel like the students were being talked at, but the message was still clear...do your best and put your mind to something and anything is possible! I wish every student could hear his message!read more

The virtual event was accessible for all students, parents & educators to view on YouTube and Matt did an AMAZING job and the feedback has been outstanding. We want to thank Matt for adapting to unprecedented circumstances and ending our school year on such an exhilarating and positive note!read more

I cannot thank him enough for coming out and providing such a great message to our community of students.I was not sure how much my Kindergartener or 2nd grader would have understood and processed what he was saying, but when they were explaining what he said they actually got it!I would definitely recommend this assembly to every child out there. We had Pre- K to 8th grade students attend and each student got something out of it. This is the BEST assembly that I have seen yet.

We were honored to welcome Matt Wilhelm to The Avery Coonley School in Downers Grove on January 6, 2020. Matt's school assembly program was our welcome-back event after winter break, and the students needed something special to capture their attention and imagination after two weeks off of school.... Admittedly, Matt had his work cut out for him, but he more than rose to the occasion! The students were treated to an absolutely fantastic performance: Matt engaged them from the first minute to the last, exciting them with his arsenal of amazing BMX tricks, and enthralling them with stories of his background as a bullied kid. The students cheered in delight watching their classmates participate in tricks, and lost their minds when Matt jumped his bike over two of their teachers! His uplifting messages of trying your best, persevering through practice, and being kind and supportive to others resonated with all our students - from 1st through 8th grades! As a father of two kids at ACS and a member of their Home and School Association, I am so happy that we had Matt at our school. We would recommend him to any other elementary or middle school looking for a fantastic enrichment program! Thanks Matt!read more

Through the PTA, I’ve had the pleasure of booking assemblies for our school for the last six years. Matt is by far the most engaging presenter we’ve had. Regardless of whether the students liked or even knew of the BMX sport, they are fully enthralled and engaged from the beginning all the way... through the end of his presentation. He has excellent public speaking skills and high level classroom management. He manages to leave his audience satisfied yet wanting more. What every educator must understand about Matt’s presentation is this is not about the sport of BMX. Matt uses his athleticism and talents in this sport as his primary vehicle to convey an anti bullying message with additional positive messages and life lessons such as “never give up” in a highly engaging manner. It was an absolute pleasure having Matt at our school. Well worth the cost of the assembly!!read more

Matt's message to both our k-2 and our 3rd-5th grade kiddos supports every SEL goal we have be working on. The show is extremely entertaining while delivering a powerful message of acceptance, tolerance, and standing up for others in our community. Our students were heard saying all day, "that... was the best assembly ever!" More than a couple of our staff shared the same sentiment. One teacher said to me, "I referenced the assembly 10 times throughout the rest of the day. I could tie his message to everything!"

Matt Wilhelm performed at our annual First Day of School Assembly for students, staff, and family members. He was a resounding success with his entertaining and engaging act. I appreciated his powerful message on perseverance, hard work, and being a positive leader at school in the face of... bullying. We had an unforeseen issue with our gym space that required Matt to change locations 30 minutes prior to our show, and he did so in a positive and upbeat manner, even helping direct students to seats in an organized fashion. In my 3 years as an administrator, this was the BEST and most meaningful assembly we have had. Thank you Matt for helping Oregon Elementary School start the school year on a positive note!read more

He talked about never giving up, always trying your best, kindness, bullying.... All his messages came across. He kept the crowd laughing, learning and wanting more. The kids loved it.

Matt visited our school for two performances last week. The kids loved the show as he creates a fun atmosphere during the show right from the start with upbeat music, his bike moves, and funny personality. He kept a nice pace to the show with bike stunts and time to share his anti-bullying... message. His message of building others up and knowing the power of your words was shared in a student friendly and interesting way. Matt was professional with every aspect of his visit from arriving early to our school for set-up and being flexible with the spaces we had to work with for the performances. We had two great shows, one outdoor and one inside due to weather. I think I actually liked the indoor show better, but both were fantastic.read more

He does some tricks which the kids love, but he does a good job of talking during and explaining them. He has a great message about not only being... kind, but also not being the bystander. Whether or not they truly take it to heart, they said things afterwards like, "I want to be someone's Batman." He also delivers it well. He clearly knows how to talk with young people.read more

As a fellow school assembly performer, I've seen hundreds of school speakers and performers over my 30 year career. Matt's presentation is among the top 5 I've ever seen. His ability to connect with kids, sense of humor, and playful approach of demonstrating his finely honed skills make his... anti-bully message sink in. Sadly, the 50 minute performance was over much too soon (but I got to watch it a second time) --everyone wanted more including the teachers and middle school kids. Matt's act is the kind that a school could repeat yearly, and I think many do. The message is genuine and heartfelt. The skills and bike stunts are world-class. Excellent, excellent performance. Bravo!read more

Matt Wilhelm shared his presentation with our elementary school. He did two presentations. The first was geared towards a Kindergarten to 3rd grade audience. The second was geared to a 4th and 5th grade audience. Both presentations made an impact on students and staff. His message of... anti-bullying mixed with responsibility, compassion, and perseverance was a natural fit for the daily message we share with our students. His presentation was extremely entertaining, but even more importantly left an impact on his audience. It's been a presentation that students and staff alike continue to talk about.

My children came home yesterday excited about Matt’s visit. I’m happy to report as a parent that they received valuable lessons from his assembly. They didn’t place great emphasis on his tricks (even though they thought they were super cool), but more so on what Matt shared with them. It was nice... to hear that if you fail to try and try again. They also shared that he was bullied and how Matt was able to overcome this. It was positive for them to see someone that went through something many children do and come out on the better side of things. Two thumbs up!! 👍🏻 👍🏻read more

Mr. Wilhelm is an awesome speaker and performer! He tailored his message to different ages and captivated them from the very beginning. It's so hard to reach older students (6th grade), but he had them completely immersed in his message by the end of his presentation.

Our teachers gave me a lot of positive feedback and are excited to use the follow-up activities that he shared. Great job!read more

But his bike tricks weren't the only thing I will remember from the assembly. He also told a story about him being bullied in school. He told us to be... like Batman, a hero. It empowered me to not just stand there like a bump on a log when someone is getting bullied. You need to stand up for both yourself and other people. Also, you need to remember that you are unique and you should NEVER EVER GIVE UP! When you know you have a purpose in this huge world, you should practice and embrace what you are good at. That's what I liked about this. Oh, another note, be yourself! And stand out!"Outstanding take-away for all of my students from a person they could relate to and enjoyed his delivery!read more

After the assembly, I had students telling me they were tearing up because either they could relate, or they knew one of their classmates could relate, to his story. I received a note on my desk the next day, stating "We want to talk with you about our classmate XXX. Our classmates always make fun of him and make him cry. Nobody has ever stood up to the people that make fun of him, but after we heard Matt Wilhelm's story we wanted to make a difference and we want to be his friend." This letter speaks volumes to how amazing his presentation is! We will be bringing him back most definitely. Thank you, Matt!!read more

I am a teacher associate for a special needs child and your performance today made him so happy and excited. Not only did he talk about your tricks but he also remembered your words. He went home after school and told his mom all about it and he usually doesn't talk about stuff at school like that.... He also won a signed poster which is hanging up in his room now. I also have 3 daughters who also got to see the performance. One at middle school level and 2 at elementary level. They were all excited and talked about all the different things that were said and done. It was an awesome performance that kept the kids and teachers entertained.

Students learn powerful lessons that they... can talk about after the show is over, and that are much needed in today’s world. Matt is a Hero and role model that students look up to.read more

Matt Wilhelm performed three incredible shows at our school today. Each show had over 270 kids and Matt held their attention from start to finish with his captivating life story, BMX tricks, humor, as well as the several engaging messages embedded in his presentation. His BMX tricks were off the... chain; he was witty and did funny accents that had everyone laughing. Some local firefighters heard about the show, and four of them stopped by school to check it out, and they ended up staying for the entire show! Matt’s anti-bullying message was spot on- “be someone’s Batman; stand up for the underdog and be that person’s hero.” That message struck a chord with many students as well as teachers. Matt challenged the students to be somebody’s superhero; after hearing his story, the students learned that strength, bravery, positivity, and love, are some of the most important super powers out there. We work so hard to teach our kids to always treat others with the respect they deserve, and having Matt there to reinforce this message in a fun, positive way was exactly what our school needed! I definitely recommend this 5-star assembly for your school!read more

Matt's ability to connect to students with his message of perseverance resonates beyond his presentation. Our students continue to talk about his visit as well as his message.

Matt's was THE BEST assembly we have ever had at our school! His performance was entertaining and his message inspiring. He tailored his talk specifically for the younger vs older kids at our school. He was also very pleasant and easy to work with, brought and set up all of his own equipment... and followed up with us after the show with suggested classroom activities to drive home his message. We will definitely be looking to bring Matt back in the future.read more

We had the best assembly at school today. Matt Wilhelm's BMX show-You delivered!!! Your tricks were amazing and your message was powerful. (Don't be afraid to be different. Find you talent and work hard. Never give up on your dreams. The words you use matter. Choose to build someone up... instead of tearing them down. Stand up for what is right and those in need.)It was so much more than a show, it was an EXPERIENCE to be remembered!read more

Matt Wilhelm provided a positive message to our students while also entertaining them with amazing tricks. His personal stories of how he never gave up on his dreams tied directly into conversations that we have been sharing with our elementary students about "grit" and how they can show tenacity,... perseverance, and determination everyday.I would highly suggest his assembly if you are looking for a way to kick off character education or a spirit week at your school. His high energy performance kept our students engaged and excited for a full hour.read more

Matt performed for our Middle School (6th, 7th, & 8th graders) and we also invited our 4th and 5th graders from the elementary. Matt captivated our students with his tricks and his message. Matt did a great job of involving the students and the faculty in his program. We were also excited to use... his Hero Inside series during Advisory time. Thank you for being an inspiration to our students.read more

We just had Matt return to our school for the second time. His program is engaging, inspiring and motivation to all of our students. I highly recommend him for any school that wants to reach kids about the effects of bullying and how to rise above it.

Matt Wilhelm's assembly is motivating, inspiring, entertaining, and resonates with students of all ages! As a longtime educator, I can assure you that Matt's assembly show is second to none. It's by far the best assembly available in the Midwest. Keep up the good work, Matt!

We have Matt come to our school every two years as our kick off character assembly. He does a great job with 4th and 5th graders. They LOVE his show and his message inspires them. He always leaves prize posters that I can give out throughout the year to help students remember his show and... messages as well. If you are looking for a good character assembly, you can't go wrong with Matt!read more

I have been an educator for 15 years and have to share that this is truly the best assembly I have ever seen. Matt captivated the kids, audience from K-6th grade, and was able to mix his talent with his amazing story. I cried at times with his words and then laughed out loud with his antics. He... holds your attention with his BMX tricks and then breaks your heart with his history, he is a HERO in all sense of the word. He survived so many obstacles and shares his talents to inspire children to never give up. It works for adults too. TRULY INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!read more
