MillsWyck Communications

Winning Communication, Strategies to Connect and Convince

We know the rules to soccer, baseball, chess, and Monopoly. Even hiring practices and the cultural conventions of our organization are played with regulations we understand and accept. But what about communication? Meetings. Emails. Letters. Pitches. Status updates. Family dinners. How do we win in these highly competitive environments with so much on the line?

In this face-paced and example-filled presentation, come discover and apply the three critical principles that will impress any audience. With immediate applicability to presentations, lectures, emails, voicemails, and personal conversations, you will find yourself uncovering new ways to use communication for impact. Alan will lead you on a journey that includes the world of college math, medicine, annual reviews, summer camp, and the Gettysburg Address to show you how to create and deliver messages that will ring in your audiences’ ears and have them talking about your message long after you have finished.

Those who attend this session will…

  • Leave with three easy principles to improve any communication

  • Apply these three tips to all forms of communication

  • Deliver messages that your audience will not forget

About Alan

Raised around America's Space Program, Alan Hoffler has earned degrees in aerospace engineering and applied mathematics, but his true passion is teaching. Midway into his 25 years of training technical corporate audiences, instructing in the college classroom, teaching public high school, and speaking nationally to pilots about flying safety, he discovered the joy in helping others communicate with excellence. He believes that communication has the power to change a person, an organization, a community, and the world. With a coach’s passion, a teacher’s heart, and an engineer’s mind, he creates practical paths to greatness for his clients. His blog reveals his desire to improve himself as well. When he’s not speaking or training, he stays active serving in the local chapter of his professional organization, supporting activities and instructing in his local church, coaching and speaking about youth sports, and dreaming about using the privileges of his commercial pilot’s license. He is the co-author of 6 Steps Forward, a parable about the stages in a man’s life, and author of Presentation Sin, a collection of tips he has learned through his observations as a speaking coach. His most challenging training endeavor is also his most enjoyable raising two children.
