“Tony’s program was riveting. He was able to take us on an emotional rollercoaster, all the while driving home the point that each one of us has our own unique story that has molded and shaped us into the person that we are today.
The following message continues to resonate through our souls nearly twenty four hours after the program, rather than placing judgement on people who are truly unable to modify their destructive actions, we should instead, invest the time to determine what has caused these actions to surface in their life.”

“We were fortunate enough to have Tony come speak to our student body at Mount Saint Mary College. Tony’s message was delivered in a powerful way and he had the attention of the room the entire night. He speaks with such passion and energy that has the ability to engulf you. His message goes way beyond being involved in sports but focuses on making better and healthier decisions. When Tony tells his story, he does it in a way that creates strong imagery that you feel like you are actually in the story. I feel like Tony is very relatable to the college aged student and that his messages are well perceived. I received nothing but positive feedback even days after his speaking event. The kids raved about his ability to have a lasting impact on their decision making processes going forward. I would highly recommend Tony to any and all schools because he is an outstanding speaker and did a phenomenal job. He is very approachable and genuinely cares about helping other human beings. If you haven’t done so yet, book Tony Hoffman for your school! He is a game changer!”

“Our school was honored to host Tony Hoffman on our campus to share his story with our students, staff, parents, and community members. In recognition of a drug issue at our school and in our community, student leaders came to me to request a speaker who might inspire our student body. After a great deal of research of guest speakers, our students chose Tony because of the message that he delivers as well as his ability to relate to students.
Tony delivered far above and beyond our expectations. He completely captivated the attention of our 1,400 students and staff for an hour and a half, which is absolutely unprecedented. During the question and answer part of his talk, we were able to clearly hear questions that came from the top row of our balcony, as students were that attentive to what he had to say. Afterward, Tony spent the remainder of the day in our building talking with students and visiting classrooms. Moreover, he has continued to respond to our students via social media. His impact is lasting long past his time with us.
Tony demonstrates a genuine care for students and for his mission to help others. Not only do I confidently recommend Tony Hoffman to any school or organization, but also I look forward to welcoming him back to our school in the future. His is an exceptional speaker and an inspirational human being. ”

Tony's "The Choice" was provided to our secondary students in light of our community and students being impacted by the national mental health and addiction crisis. Tony's story in itself was powerful; but what had the greatest impact was his raw and poignant authenticity that cut through economic or social status. His story truly reached the students. After each presentation, Tony made himself available for individual conversations and genuine human kindness. It is clear that this is his calling and that his story and wisdom will prevent so many others from making a choice that will adversely alter the course of their lives forever. I have not seen anyone better do this kind of transformational work that is desperately needed in all communities.
