“Alan is an engaging speaker and teacher with a compelling message: anyone can be a good communicator. Alan helped our team recognize the power of effective communications in everything from an email to a formal presentation, and armed them with practical ways to be better communicators in business and beyond.”


Senior Communications Specialist, RTI International

Alan’s breakout session at the CXps 2018 Conference, Sound Like You Feel, contained terrific information about how to get your passion across when you are speaking to clients, prospects, or members of your team. One of our presenters attended Alan’s session before his own session and I could see him putting the techniques he learned to work right away.


Marketing Director, Client Savvy

THANK YOU! I have honestly had no less than 15 employees tell me today that you were the best speaker in our four years of holding planning sessions. We had high expectations and you delivered. Your message was clear, applicable and you delivered it in a fun and insightful way.


Chief Operating Officer, Pool Professionals of the Carolinas

We at Foothills Area FCA have invited Alan Hoffler to speak at our coaches’ clinics numerous times. His content, personalism, and professionalism are second to none which speaks to why we invite him back time and time again. With Alan as your keynote speaker for whatever occasion I can promise you will not be disappointed, in fact your audience will leave encouraged and inspired.”


Area Director, Foothills FCA

“Alan Hoffler provides the insights you need for powerful and persuasive communication. His programs are energetic, entertaining, and most importantly, effective.”


President, Triangle American Marketing Association

I attended the Storytelling Workshop led by Alan Hoffler…it was one of the most entertaining and educational workshops I have ever participated in. I walked away with about 15 story topics/outlines in three hours. I wish it ran another 4 hours to write and practice. I highly recommend it for any level speaker. Also, I was very impressed by the distance most people traveled to be there…some 5+ hours.”


Executive Director, John Maxwell Team

“What I loved about Alan’s talk (The Four Questions) was that he talked about the principles of coaching. We all understand what coaching is about, but he distilled it down to really four questions that we can apply to ourselves as a speaker or in our day to day business. And he really made us think about how we speak, about the audience and how their perception of us is, and how we can be effective. And at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about. How can you become more of an effective communicator? And Alan really nailed it.


Keynote Speaker,

I have been a public speaker for more than 25 years.  I majored in communications in college, and have studied it and practiced it ever since. Alan’s class was transformative.  He took what I knew and moved me to a whole new level of skill even after decades of work.  I highly recommend you take Alan’s classes in presentation skills.  If you’re scared, he’ll get you comfortable.  If you’re okay, he’ll make you good.  If you’re good, he’ll make you great.  He even has follow-up classes to keep your skills fresh. Toastmasters has nothing on Alan!”
Craig Mathews, Big Think


Big Think Innovation, Inc.

Alan Hoffler has been the most popular trainer we’ve ever had. Many of our staff have called me immediately after completing communications training with Alan to say how much they learned from him and how much they enjoyed his training. Alan’s energy, his wit, his many experiences, and his ways of directly involving our staff during his presentations make for truly fun, effective, and memorable training. We highly recommend Alan.
