“When Tony speaks, people listen… Although Tony’s life story is about his struggle with substance abuse and recovery, his message is so much stronger, so much more. It’s about making life choices; it’s about handling trials, tribulations and success; it’s about becoming the best you can be; it’s invigorating, challenging, and even difficult to hear. Tony’s level of energy is extraordinary. He connects with the audience and his passion for people is astonishing real. Tony’s devotion to, giving back to communities is unparalleled.”
— Myra Wilkey, HCCP Executive Director Mental Health America of West Central Indiana, Inc.
“The athletes, coaches, and parents of the Danville Oaks Rugby Football Club were fortunate to have Tony Hoffman with us on Friday, April 24, 2018. He was an excellent motivational speaker for our Club. Before Tony’s arrival, we were uncertain whether he would be able to effectively reach our players and educate them on the dangers of alcohol/drug use. We were apprehensive about the reaction Tony would get from players and parents. Our fears were unfounded. Tony captured the attention of the entire audience in the first five minutes of his presentation. Both players and parents felt connected to his story. Everyone could relate to the struggles he faced and the courage it took to fight back his addiction to drugs. He shared his “Micro Process” to help our audience establish better habits in their own life struggles. He made an impact on every person sitting in the room. Tony didn’t just speak and take off. He stayed for photos with the players and let them know he cared about them. He spoke to parents who wanted to get specific advice. By far, Tony Hoffman is one of the best speakers I have had the pleasure of meeting. We look forward to working with him in the future.”
Your performance today was nothing short of spectacular. 1,000 high school students listened to every word of your powerful story. I am thoroughly impressed that you gave out your social media contact and continued to answer questions from our audience both privately and publicly. It shows how much you really care, a class act. I truly believe you saved many lives today and look forward to having you speak again soon. In my opinion, every 9-12th-grade kid should hear your message. Thanks again!”

On behalf of the the USD Students for Life Club, I'd like to thank you again for speaking at our Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention event. You made us feel motivated to be our best selves and encourage others to do the same. You also opened our eyes to the reality of of addiction and challenged us to change our perspectives on those struggling with addiction. We feel more confident in our abilities to reach out and support others in their struggles and we will most definitely continue to work to change the stigma that surrounds addiction.
I would travel the country to see you speak again. I attend conferences (a lot) and have never been so moved and impacted by a keynote speaker. As a public defender I don’t always get to hear the depths of people’s journeys - thank you so much for your courage and willingness to share. Your talk alone made the conference worth it. I will be sharing the webcast with my judges, prosecutors, and community partners as soon as I get back!
Tony Hoffman delivers one of the most important talks that people of this generation could hear.
The younger generation often doesn’t think about the consequences of actions or that walking
through a door in life can lead to actions that the individual never dreamt of. Tony’s message
never comes across as preachy or condescending; quite the opposite actually, it comes from
absolute humility and dedication to his core message: people who’ve gotten to a nasty point in
their life didn’t ask to be there… the stigma against them must be broken. Overall, if your
organization is looking for a speaker that not only will deliver a powerful message, but also
packs a commanding motivational tone that will inspire people to get back on their feet if they’ve
fallen down, then Tony Hoffman needs to be your go-to speaker.
