Meet Alan Goff: a family man, an award-winning professional speaker, and President of Achieving Goals. Alan is an ACHIEVEMENT GURU – a man of great passion, perseverance, and action – who can turn your intent into reality. Alan is also an author, father, husband, and friend.
As the President of Achieving Goals, Alan relies on his real-life knowledge and experiences (of both success and failure), on a daily basis to provide an entirely different approach to helping others realize their own achievement. Alan doesn’t just teach what he knows – he teaches what he lives, which is where real transformation takes place.
Communication is in Alan’s DNA. Alan dreamed of being a professional speaker since the age of 10. He has dedicated his life to his craft, and his own personal brand of excellence, accumulating a long list of awards and accomplishments to demonstrate that. Among his many achievements, Alan has ten years as a professional speaker under his belt. In two consecutive years, Alan competed against more than 35,000 contestants from over 14 countries, finishing in the top 20 of the world semi-finals in Toastmasters International’s prestigious ‘World Championship of Public Speaking.’
He is a certified leadership speaker, teacher, and coach with the John Maxwell Team, as well as a founding member of the JMT. The Metropolitan Executive and Professional Registry has recognized Alan for ‘Outstanding Leadership and Achievement’. Alan has worked with the world-renowned Dale Carnegie organization, where he learned from some of the best teachers in the world and was the recipient of their prestigious ‘Highest Award for Achievement’.
Alan has worked throughout Canada, the United States, and around the world, also being published in New York City’s ‘Mainline Magazine’ and the Canadian Institute of Management’s ‘Leaders in Management.’ Alan has also been featured on the CBS program ‘Leading Experts’, and has been a guest on many internet and broadcast radio programs.
At the end of the day, however, Alan is human. He has earned success, and felt the burn of mistakes. Alan’s unique ability is demonstrated when he turns professional experiences into thought-provoking presentations on how to achieve remarkable results.
Whether on the platform in front of an audience of thousands, or coaching a small team, Alan connects with people. He’s honest, open, and vulnerable; willing to share his struggles, mistakes and failures. Alan walks his audiences through those challenges, and demonstrates how he produces results.
Even in the face of failure and difficulty, Alan teaches his audience how to live up to their full potential, find necessary purpose in life, and the conviction to turn intent into reality.
