Speaking Reviews

Alan, you’ve got a wonderful knack for getting everyone involved. This was an accomplishment that will never be forgotten. You are a marvel and well worth our time and money, we were honored to have you. I can honestly say that if you were to give another presentation, we would all be there again.

- Brian Kranzler, President, School Plant Officials Society of Alberta/ Alberta Education

Although this was just a lesson on leadership, you’ve changed my life today. When I get home, my wife and kids will have a new leader in the home and my staff will have a new leader at work. Thank you!

Another fantastic session from the UofA (University of Alan). You have lifted my spirits with yet another of your practical and inspiring lessons.

- Darren Weeks, Founder, Fast Track Group

I have heard many great speakers including Tony Robbins and T. Harv Eker; and can honestly say that Alan Goff is among the best in the world.

- Travis Lutz, President, Out There Media

I’ve been a C-level executive most of my career. I’ve heard a lot of speakers, the best of the best, and a lot of the so-called ‘Big Dogs’, but none with a message this good. It’s the best leadership training I’ve had – period! Everybody needs this lesson. I’m going back to the corporation I retired from and getting you in.

- Keith Baldwin

Your motivational topic was both appropriate and timely given the current economic downturn and the effect we were experiencing in our general morale at the time. I am confident we will see positive results in terms of morale, engagement and attitude; and look forward to the impact this will have on our safety program as well as our overall working environment. I highly recommend Alan.

- Pete Merlo, President, LSM – Lee’s Sheet Metal Ltd.

Once again, your presentation was outstanding!  We’re so glad we had you back.

- Lorena Iceton, Association of Administrative Assistants

“You were WONDERFUL!!!  Everyone is STILL talking about you!!! I am even practicing your tips and putting my learning to daily use.

Coaching Reviews

Alan Goff is a leader who can leverage both his insight, developed through his commitment of being a life-long learner, and his vast real-life experience as a business leader.While being authentic and real can be a struggle for all of us, Alan strives to be honest about his past struggles and triumphs for the learning benefit of all who come in contact with him.During the time he spent working with DEXIO, Alan left a great impact and stirred us all to look in the mirror at how we can become even better.

- Dan Duckering, President, DEXIO Inc.

I had the pleasure of working with Alan a few years ago and he was always very professional and delivered as promised. Alan has the quality of being very honest and will always give the information that is required no matter what the consequences. This quality is very important as it is the only way to find the true root cause of a problem which leads to long lasting solutions.

- Roch Dallaire, President, Gemini Helicopters Ltd.

Alan Goff has been a driving force in my inspiration and development as a professional and a leader. I appreciate his straight forward approach, generosity and respect to tell you what you need to know, rather than what you want to hear. His expertise is to inspire and challenge you to be better tomorrow than you are today and to lay out a path to achieve your dreams.I can say in complete honesty, that knowing Alan Goff and spending time with Achieving Goals has helped set me on an adventure of significance. I now know that to chase significance is a worthy goal and the path is filled with chances to grow, adapt, and learn and path a new way for your life and career.

- Dane Campbell, Assistant Manager, Rona Inc. Grande Prairie

Alan has worked with me in many of his weekend seminars, and as a personal coach. In this time, the growth I have experienced has been staggering. The ‘how’ that has been missing from all other programs is now in place. The amazing part, after only one week of applying the material and principles Alan taught, I am months ahead of schedule. And that’s after he challenged me to double my goal and cut the time line in half!

- Tevis Sample, Principal, Slick International

Alan, is brutally honest in his coaching. He isn't going to pussyfoot around and make you feel good. He delivers... I was stuck and didn't know how to get out of my rut. I truly enjoyed working with Alan, well worth the investment. I definitely feel he is outstanding in his meticulous attention to his clients (me). I'm really grateful for the help he gave me and I know I could call him up and he'd be there for me, ready to answer a question or help me resolve a situation, even today. Thank you Alan, I appreciate your brilliance.

- Roberta Brunin, Owner, Strategies for Life

I do NOT recommend Alan Goff, if you are satisfied with being average, happy being stuck, not willing to learn how to do better or put in the effort to change, then Alan is not for you.If you are serious about taking your life and business not only the next level, but to take a Quantum leap. You are doing yourself a HUGE disservice by not hiring Alan Goff Right NOW!Your life and business will be transformed to heights you may not have even dreamt about, you deserve to have Alan on your team, Call Alan TODAY!

- Jimmy Lefebvre, President/Principle Director, Apex Results Inc.

Alan’s coaching will provide you with life changing tools. Applying those tools resulted in me reaching my goal of writing a book and equipped me to move on to starting my own organization. I’ll never be able to thank Alan enough for coaching me!

Alan has made such a huge change in my leadership in such a short time. I’m very thankful to be working with him and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend him to anyone who wants to better themselves or their business!

- Sheldon Dietz, Owner, Real Canadian Property Management

Working with Alan has been a breath of fresh air. He is a true master of his craft. Our experience has been brief but bold, he really loves what he does and it shines through his work. I would rate him 6 stars if I could.

- John Anderson, President/CEO, Supplement King

Alan Goff is a great coach. He is helping me develop and shape my speaking and training business. He challenges my thinking and is teaching me how to develop my USP (Unique Selling Proposition) and how to identify my ideal client and target audience for my business. He is also doing more than this, and I appreciate everything Alan is helping me to learn.My coaching sessions with Alan are one of the highlights of my week and I get real value out of every one of my coaching sessions. Thank you, Alan for being an awesome coach for my calculated Decisions business!

- Jonathan Ettie, President, Kalculated Decisions Limited

Alan came alongside me, pulled me out of the depths of despair, set my feet on a strong foundation, and gave me the tools I need. He continues to be alongside me as I build my huge dream. He is amazing. His ability to pour out of himself and support my vision is inspiring. He is what I needed. He is a coach to me and part of my team for life.

- Someh Niengor, Owner, DG Real Estate & DGD Homes

Working with Alan was not easy ;-)... He is straight forward and uses a no-excuse approach in extracting the best out of you. He is insightful, quickly discerning your excuses, while pushing you forward in your goals (often exposing limiting beliefs that hold you back). No quick fixes or easy outs, with Alan you receive clarity of vision help creating tangible steps towards your goals. If you do the work, you will see the results. Highly recommend!

- Scott Campbell, Owner, Energetic Services Inc.

Alan is a positive force that challenges me to be the best I can be finding hidden potential and unshakable belief in my success. His teaching leadership and encouragement have made the difference in achieving my dreams and reaching for far more than I even cared to consider possible. He is fearless and faithful. He is a true champion of people!

- Kimberly Talmey, President, KAT-al-yst Coaching and Counseling Services

Alan has been mentoring and coaching me for around 9 years now. My background was that of a troubled kid raised in a “challenging” environment; a high school dropout who was hungry for positive change and looking for improvement where I could find it.When I was 22, I met Alan at a Toastmasters event. He was the professional speaker and I was the young kid who didn’t even know what a dress shirt was. Right from that moment I knew I could learn from Alan.Alan taught me how to speak in front of hundreds of people (I raised millions of dollars with his help), how to be professional, and most of all, how to be a better human being.I owe a lot of my success to Alan.

- Chris Doran, Chief Financial Officer, Blastaway Enterprises (former CEO, Cashflow Strategies)

Alan Goff is an exceptional coach, as he takes his time to make sure every speech/ presentation I’ve written is being delivered in the best way possible. Alan is an honest coach as he pushes you out of your comfort zone and makes sure he critiques and praise your efforts. He sees your goals and always keeps them in mind to help you succeed.I can say that my confidence and speaking skills have grown tremendously thanks to Alan's continual effort and dedication. He truly wants you to be successful and will do anything he can to help you achieve your goals. He sets the bar high and never lets you fail. I am forever grateful that I received coaching from Alan as I continually think back to his techniques that he taught, which are useful every day.

- Miranda Pybus, Miss Rodeo Canada Competitor & Finalist

Alan Goff is amazing!!!!  He is far beyond any traditional therapist, shrink, or counselor (no offense to their profession). Positively inspiring! He is someone who is easy and amazing to talk with. I recommend him anytime!

- Renee Callahan, Design Artist, Salon West

Training Reviews

Attending your leadership sessions impacted both my professional and personal life. I am now better equipped to handle new and tough situations that arrive. I now look at challenges as a "test of what I learned" and am encouraged to go the extra distance to do things in a better way. Learning the characteristics of a good leader gave me something concrete to strive for. Your resource materials are a useful reference and I am motivated to provide stronger leadership to my family as well as other activities I am involved with.You did a great job of keeping me interested and thinking throughout your sessions. I appreciate the chance to contribute my thoughts and learn from the other people attending. We had a lot of laughs while we learned valuable information.Alan, I was impressed by every session. I left each session with a feeling of empowerment and motivation. You impacted my life and gave me something to strive for!

- Brian Peterson, Principle Director, BAP Designworks

Alan, your presentation and classroom skills are exceptional. Even though the sessions were in the evenings after a long day at work, you captured everyone's full attention. Your examples and stories were clear and simple so that even now I can still remember them and share them with others.Your sessions helped me identify my current areas of strength while at the same time; identify areas in which to grow. Previously, courses and books about leadership applied to my work, but for the first time, yours helped me apply it in every area of my life. This is the best tool I’ve ever received.I enjoyed "Delegating Tasks and Developing People" the most. It showed how to develop others while delegating work is something that we need to do each day. I learned that when you delegate, you make others responsible, respect their ideas and ultimately they grow. I’ve made changes in my office in order to apply this principle and I have already had very good results. 'The good holds us back from great' is another principle I just can’t get out of my head. You’ve really challenged me to grow even more.With the changes I’ve implemented in my office, my family and myself, I feel renewed and am seeing positive fruit in my staff and colleagues. Thank you so much for your excellence. I am anxiously waiting your return.

- Rodo Terceros, Director/Administrator, Peace Wapiti Public School Division

Thank you for providing your leadership training. I have benefited tremendously from my involvement. The skills learned in your sessions are transferable to all aspects of my life. Although the focus was "leadership", the tools I received have also helped me improve my communications skills. Your material is excellent and I was impacted by the approach to relationships discussed throughout the sessions.I truly appreciate the informal and comfortable atmosphere you create. Your interactive approach made it easy for me to participate and engage in discussions. You made every session interesting, impactful, uplifting and entertaining. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from you and I value what you have shared.Thank you for taking the time to make a difference. I highly recommend your training and I am committed to participating in any future sessions offered.Alan, your enthusiasm, talents, knowledge and people skills made my experience with you one I will treasure. Your warmth and friendliness bring life to the material and creates a perfect learning environment. It was an outstanding opportunity for me.

- Aleta Peterson, Director At Large, White Rock Theater Company / Coast Capital Playhouse

One of the best training programs I’ve ever had. Very useful and necessary training that should be cascaded to all employees.

- Deborah Albury, First Caribbean Bank, Bahamas

I think the EPIC program is one that should be taught at all levels of the business. The information and tools provided will enable me to enhance my skills in every area of my life.

- Andrea Smith, First Caribbean Bank, Bahamas

This training was excellent… I suggest we extend this program to all employees at First Caribbean. The sessions help you to take a deeper look at yourself and to see how best to improve as a person. Hence, you would be able to improve First Caribbean overall.

- Anne Ferguson, First Caribbean Bank, Bahamas

Your leadership session on Saturday will change my life. Thank you.

- Darryl W. Olson, President, La Crete & Area Chamber of Commerce

Thank you for the excellent day yesterday Alan, everyone got something of value from it and we’ve already decided to have you back.  This type of training should be mandatory – even for high school students – it should be part of the curriculum; it is that valuable.

- Joe Letourneau, Agent/Owner, Co-operators Insurance

I’ve finally had break throughs that I’ve waited five years to achieve. Thank you for the time you’ve put into my development, I appreciate it more than you know.

- Graham Elger, World Financial Group Securities of Canada

I think all companies must invest in seminars like these. The topics covered are excellent and definitely helped our company increase productivity and build a better management team. It has been a great experience.

- Manager, Suzuki Dealership

Leadership is the capacity to turn others into leaders; developing their talents, skills, and ideas and managing by example. It is the capacity to transform vision into reality. That's exactly what your leadership seminars do.

- Irma Sotogras, Finance Comptroller, Suzuki Motors Barbados

This was a great opportunity to explore myself and make significant changes in how I approach life. You gave us tremendous skills and a great way to transmit them to others. I can't wait to get back and start coaching my team.

- Manager, Suzuki Motors, Puerto Rico

In view of what the training team was able to accomplish for Buildfolio and the deep insights that they were able to provide, we highly recommend the EPIC system to any corporation looking to augment performance and effectiveness.

- Guy Tcheau, CEO, Buildfolio, Inc.

I found the training to be insightful. Not only for myself, personally, but in how I view and deal with others. My attention was held throughout the course, not a dull moment.

- Gia Gulino, President, The Mortgage Firm

For the first time in 50 years I now understand myself, through your course, which will enable me to understand my co-workers and even improve my personal life 100%.

- Gary Clarke, Executive Vice President, Simpson Motors

Thank you for inspiring me and impacting my team.

Masterminds & Mentorship Reviews

I have completed a couple of different programs Alan Goff has led, which has been very positive for our entire organization.  Our personal growth has made us better leaders and more productive as a company overall.  My motive to engage with Alan was to help me raise the potential of our company through this tough economic time.  The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership Mastermind experience has given me more hope, and a more positive outlook on our future.  Alan is a great teacher. He makes the training very personal by using real examples and personal stories from his own journey as well as some of his previous clients.I highly recommend Alan’s leadership training, especially The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership Mastermind I’ve just completed.  It has a ton of benefits for our organization I know will last long into the future.  Alan has helped our whole team grow as stronger leaders together.

- Phillip Fehr, General Manager, Fair Energy Inc.

I feel privileged to have taken Alan Goff's leadership training, specifically ‘The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership’ mastermind series.  I have experienced massive growth both personally and professionally as a leader in ways I can only deem as necessary to anyone in a management role.  Alan's approach to facilitation is admirable and most definitely welcomed.  It was my first training in leadership.  I applied the concepts and benefited immediately.  Alan actually demonstrates tremendous skills of leadership and teaching that inspired us all to assume our roles as leaders in ways we had never considered before, but needed to.  His personal touch (stories and practical ‘real-world’ examples) to the material added common sense, and great depth, making it easy to understand and actually apply.   I encourage anyone who has an opportunity to take training or coaching from Alan, to do so without reservation.

- Tayt Kosabeck, Sales Manager, Rona Inc. Grande Prairie

I have personally participated in one of Alan's Mastermind series and can attest to its value.  After talking to Alan about how I could grow my own personal leadership abilities, I determined it would have a positive impact on the entire team I lead at Rona.   During the weeks of learning I have seen immense growth in my team.  They have developed a new passion for their individual positions, as well as their impact on the overall crew here at Rona.  They have also developed a deeper understanding of how their strengths and weaknesses impact those around them.To describe the general observations of my entire management team in two words, I say ‘Profound Growth!’My personal experience is much the same.  I have developed more skills and understanding of how to grow in my own leadership.  To be frank, 10 weeks isn't even long enough.  Which is why I intend to continue my training with Alan.  I have realized more of my vision, goals and navigation through his facilitation and I highly recommend it – and him - to anyone who endeavors to build a more solid team and increase their leadership influence.

- Dane Campbell, Assistant Manager, Rona Inc. Grande Prairie
