Jeff has been invited to more than 50 countries (and all 7 continents) to speak on innovation, entrepreneurship and innovation. An engaging storyteller, he applies his vast experience to problems that challenge all entrepreneurs, and those trying to make a difference in the world. Jeff always leaves his audience with a profoundly new way to think, and a sense of hope and empowerment.
Jeff tailors all of his talks to be event-specific, but below is a general overview of the themes he covers in his keynotes:
Jeff has spoken at several of our main events over the past few years including talks at the United Nations and the US Chamber of Commerce. Every speech he has delivered has resulted in a standing ovation. I think what resonates with people is Jeff's humility, authenticity, sincerity, and amazing track record. When Jeff comes to our events, you directly feel his mission to improve the world by supporting one entrepreneur at a time. It is inspiring.
Jeff graciously hosted the first quarterly Music Media & Money Gabfest this past February. He kept the audience involved and interested as he spoke. I attribute much of the day's success to Jeff's ability to naturally converse with our speakers in front of a live audience. His perspective on business and life was received well and our attendees took vigorous notes. Jeff is down to earth, sociable, and pleasant to be around. Any event would be blessed to have Jeff as its host and/or motivational speaker.
Jeff's glittering resume and reputation preceded him before we met. What isn't on the page however, is his humble approach to business that drives him to always be learning rather than teaching - a rare approach for such an accomplished entrepreneur, and to always be listening rather than preaching - an even rarer gift for such an accomplished public speaker. He is a worthy ambassador for US innovation wherever he goes around the world, and the best example of how great success in business need not be at the expense of decency and compassion.
Jeff is an incredible individual that I feel privileged to know and perceive as a peer, mentor and a friend. I invited Jeff to address our dynamic audience at Behind Every Leader in 2013 and he was remarkable. Two standing ovations and even a couple a marriage proposals from the attendees!
Jeff Hoffman is a man on a mission. He is a world class speaker and mentor. It has been an honor to share the stage with Jeff at BEL, have his message on my stage and have Jeff as a mentor. His humility and actionable advice leave an indelible influence. Jeff doesn't rely on dazzling accomplishments which certainly he could. His presence, curiosity and innovative thinking make him an extraordinary combination. His message was so well received at my conference, BRAVA, that he received a standing ovation. Jeff inspired attendees to such a degree that they took the initiative to record a thank you video for him. We got so many requests that he will be presenting at our next event.
