2018 Keynote Speakers

Holly Hoffman
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.

An accomplished motivational speaker and the author of Your Winner Within, 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 writing and speaking not only offer encouragement and optimism, but a roadmap 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 travels across the country, speaking to schools and universities, healthcare organizations, women’s organizations, community leaders, and business professionals, inspiring audiences to take opportunities and focus on attitude, determination, confidence, desire, faith, and perseverance.
