Holly's Most Requested Programs:

“Never Give Up!  The Survivor Way”

As we survive life's challenges, we come face to face with fear and uncertainty.  Challenges may allow us to step out of our comfort zone and push ourselves above and beyond our own self-limitations.  It is how we choose to overcome challenges that make us who we are.  It is our strength in times of difficulty that prove our character and self-worth.  As I share with you an experience that I had, that not only pushed my physically but mentally, I encourage you to think about how you decide to survive on a daily basis.  I will encourage you to think about six words to develop your survival skills.  With my six simple words, you can take on any challenge you are faced with.  Adversity is not so much contending with problems as it is learning more about who you are and what is inside of you.  Join me and explore what your true survival skills are.

Write yourself a Note

We all need to make a conscious effort to bring ourselves back to center and refocus. The desire to live focused every day may take a daily reminder to write yourself a note. 


"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

“Holly Hoffman is an amazing speaker. Holly is a true “Survivor” – her story about starring on the reality show and her real world experiences are relatable for so many people. Her speech appeals to audiences of all ages. Her positive attitude and fun stories will leave you recharged and entertained. 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

“I've had the privilege of hearing Holly speak on two separate occasions.  Each time she was incredible!  Holly has such an incredible warmth and authenticity about her that allows her to instantly make connections with all kinds of people.  As she reveals her personal journey, both in writing and speaking, you can't help but be drawn in.  Hers is such a compelling story of inner strength, positivity and belief in yourself - that's oftentimes funny, happy and hopeful and at other times tragic and brutally honest.  During her presentation, I could see men and women alike, all around the room, laughing and crying and nodding their heads in agreement as she recounters her struggles and accomplishments.  She is so down to earth and truly is someone that everyone can relate to.  What Holly shares with others is so empowering and ispiring, I wish everyone could hear her story!"  Lauren Balleweg, PayPal, Phoenix Arizona
