We booked Tony when looking for a speaker who would share a compelling story regarding opioid use, abuse and overcoming the obstacles. With the epidemic growing by the second in our state and in our nation, the message needs to be shared.

Tony delivered a riveting speech that kept all audience members on the edge of their chairs. One audience member said on their survey, “Tony Hoffman is one of the best speakers I have ever heard and that says a lot over the course of my 20+ years of hearing speakers”.

It is rare to find a speaker who has encountered what Tony has and lives to tell a story of such hope and inspiration.” - Tim Rave, President/CEO, South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations
