Title: Never Give Up – The Survivor Way     

Speaker:  Holly Hoffman, Professional Speaker & Author

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 my experience of being on a reality show, 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 really are and what is inside of you.  Join me and explore what your true survival skills are.


About the Speaker: Holly Hoffman

Born and raised in Eureka, South Dakota, Holly Hoffman was the last remaining member of the Espada Tribe and the last woman standing on Season 21 of CBS’ hit reality show “Survivor Nicaragua”. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly was inspired to share her message of positivity, determination, and confidence with business leaders, teachers, and students across the nation.

A professional speaker and the author of Your Winner Within and Write Yourself a Note, Holly acknowledges that life is made up of challenges, and we are oftentimes faced with situations that seem insurmountable. But within each of us is an ability to focus our thoughts, emotions, and energy to succeed—if only we have the knowledge, tools, and discipline to do so.

Holly’s speaking and writing not only offer encouragement and optimism but a road-map for self discovery and spiritual enlightenment. Her methods ─ the ones she uses everyday in her own life ─ are intuitive, honest, and adaptable to nearly any situation. Readers and audience members alike walk away inspired to light the fire of successful living within themselves.

Today, Holly is a member of the National Speaker’s Association and travels the country, speaking to schools and universities, healthcare organizations, women’s organizations, community leaders, and business professionals. Holly performs many motivational speeches and presentations each year, and in her eight years of speaking, she has traveled to 35 states and more than 180 high schools. Holly inspires her audiences to explore opportunities and focus on attitude, determination, confidence, desire, faith, and perseverance.

Topic: How Do You Express Gratitude Toward Your Clients?

This meeting will allow each of us the opportunity to share and see examples of how we express gratitude towards our clients. Some of the examples we will discuss are: What do you do after a site visit?, What do you do after a proposal is sent to a client?, What do you do after a meeting?, Do you recognize a 5 year client or 10 year client anniversary? Do you recognize when a client has a milestone or career achievement?

Don’t forget about the competition…bring a sample of how you express your gratitude for your clients and the attendees will vote for the best one. One lucky winner will walk away with a prize. This session is just in time before the holiday season to give you great ideas on how to express your gratitude. Make sure and register today!
