MASMS Special Training at ALL April 2023 Chapter Meetings

Connections Matter | Communication & Leadership
Presenter:  Holly Hoffman

When you hear there is going to be a leadership presentation what goes through your mind?
“That’s for our manager to attend.” or “Those are common sense things I’ve heard before.”
Holly Hoffman will shatter that mindset with her program on communication & leadership.

EVERYONE possesses leadership and communication skills that come out in our daily actions

not matter what role we are performing, whether it’s at work, as a parent, as a volunteer, or a supportive friend.

Holly is a professional motivational speaker, a native of South Dakota and the author of Your Winner Within and Write Yourself a Note.

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.

This program is laced with humor to reinforce the motivation and inspiration ofwhat it takes to survive in the real world.
