“Never Give Up!  The Survivor Way”

Step out of your comfort zone and truly discover what you are made of! Life is about seizing opportunities, and when you are in control of your inner strength, attitude, and power, you have the ability to open doors you never thought possible. You become a survivor.  Life's biggest education comes through the acknowledgement of our own personal strengths and weaknesses and the inner power we are willing to harness to live our best life and succeed.  In reality, the only person always looking out for you , is you. In this way, we are all survivors.


"On behalf of the Nebraska Bankers Association, thank you for speaking at our Young Bankers of Nebraska Conference. Your message was both inspirational and motivational and so much more than just another story from a reality TV show personality. The comments from the attendees were extremely positive and appreciative of the information shared and the takeaways that you offered by sharing your experiences. I will definitely look for future opportunities where we can have you speak to other groups within our association. Thank you!”  Ron Arrigo, NBA Senior Vice President, Nebraska Bankers Association, Lincoln, NE

She is a must-book speaker for your next event – you will not be disappointed. Our event raised over $100,000 thanks to Holly’s great speech!”   Christy Menning, Charity Fundraiser for McCrossan Boys Ranch, Sioux Falls, SD

“I organize a lot of the trainings for Anoka County. I am a huge Survivor fan, and thought it would be fun to have Holly come and speak at one of our trainings. I was hoping to hear her story about being on the show and was not disappointed. What I found interesting was there were many people in our audience that have never even seen the show, and the feedback from them was overwhelmingly positive. Holly’s message of inner strength and overcoming fear is universal, you don’t have to be a fan to benefit from what she says. She kept the interest of everyone and was so genuine and warm. I recommend her to anyone looking for a dynamic speaker whose message is both entertaining and thought provoking.”   Paula Anderson, Manager of License Bureau Services, Anoka County, MN

“Holly is a very talented speaker and storyteller. Her story resonated with our audience of 2,500 from all over the country – individuals from all walks of life who appreciated both her challenges and her inspiration to overcome the odds. We continue to receive notes of thanks for finding Holly and bringing her to our conference. She is an absolute delight to work with!”   Pat Shafer, Executive Project Manager, NISC, St. Louis, MO

“Holly is an inspiration and a motivator. She spoke to our youth group and had their attention the entire session. It’s a no canned presentation with Holly. She personalized the presentation to the audience, theme of our conference, and for each session. Students went home to tell their friends and parents about Holly Hoffman. This was a conference for new members who were inspired and fired up about our organization due to Holly’s performance. We will definitely have her back!”   Kevin Reisenauer, North Dakota DECA Advisor, Fargo, ND
