2022 KEYNOTE SPEAKER – Holly Hoffmann

 

Holly Hoffman was the last remaining member of the Espada Tribe and the last woman standing on Season 21 of Survivor Nicaragua on CBS. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly was inspired to share her message of positivity, determination and confidence.

 

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 often faced with situations that seem insurmountable. She inspires her audience to focus their thoughts, emotions, and energy towards success and shares the knowledge, tools, and discipline to achieve it.

 

A lifelong resident of America’s heartland, Holly graduated from her hometown high school in Eureka, South Dakota, and then attended Northern State University. Holly is the proud mother of three wonderful children and six grandchildren.

 

In 2019, Holly earned the CSP® (Certified Speaking Professional™) designation from the National Speakers Association. She travels across the country speaking to a wide variety of corporations, associations, universities, schools and women’s organizations.

 

Holly’s message not only offers encouragement and optimism but a roadmap for self-discovery and spiritual enlightenment. Her methods are intuitive, honest, and adaptable to nearly any situation. Her audience is guaranteed to walk away inspired and motivated to succeed.
