REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Daniel Hoffman Biography

Daniel Hoffman is a risk consultant, author, and avid fly fisherman. Based in Fairbanks, Alaska, Hoffman Consulting provides customized emergency planning and preparedness services for businesses and organizations throughout North America. Founder and Principal Daniel Hoffman worked as a fly-fishing guide in the remote lodges of Katmai/Bristol Bay while completing his bachelor’s degree from the University of Alaska; he eventually obtained his master’s degree in justice and public administration while serving as Chief of Police for the City of Fairbanks.

Following his retirement from a 20-year law enforcement career, Hoffman entered the world of industrial risk management, serving for over a decade as the Risk Management Supervisor for Alaska’s Pogo Mine through the successive ownership of three international companies: Canada’s Teck Resources, Japan’s Sumitomo Metal Mining, and Australia’s Northern Star Resources.

As a nearly lifelong Alaskan and avid angler, Daniel’s recent book – "An Alaska Flyfisher’s Odyssey: Seeking a Life of Drag-Free Drift in the Land of the Midnight Sun" – offers keen insights into life’s challenges and relationships, where lessons applying directly to business and leadership development, risk management, and personal growth are artfully delivered through his unique fly-fisherman’s perspective.

Attendees at conferences, corporate retreats, and in-service training events will find Dan’s messaging to be both meaningful and memorable. As a comfortable and personable presenter, Hoffman can draw upon his career experience to custom tailor his delivery for a wide variety of audiences. Most commonly addressing business and leadership development groups, Daniel effectively utilizes analogies from the world of fly fishing to speak to the importance of mindful observation and deliberative pre-planning. He further emphasizes the need to “mend one’s line” (i.e., make mid-course corrections) when necessary in order to optimize leadership, promote effective risk-management culture, and enhance relationships.

Speaking Topics
  • Risk Management from the Flyfisher's Perspective

    Designed for risk practitioners, supervisors, and business leaders, Daniel examines the thought-processes, qualities, and practices necessary to ensure that a robust risk-management culture takes root within one's organization. Often using analogies from the world of fly fishing, Dan's presentation is a welcome departure from the standard, bone-dry material often presented at such training events, and is guaranteed to hold the interest of anglers and non-anglers alike.

  • Leadership Development- The Art of Thinking Like a Fly Fisherman

    Designed for supervisory development seminars, corporate retreats, and in-service training sessions, Daniel examines the qualities that lend themselves to exceptional leadership in today's world. Dan then examines some of the pitfalls encountered with trainings based upon "personality assessment models," and takes participants on a journey through the fly fisherman's world to better understand how people and situations can be approached in a manner designed to enhance leadership abilities and achieve optimal outcomes.

  • Relationships and the Dry-Dropper Rig... Do You Know Which One You Are?

    Designed for a wide variety of audiences, this presentation examines how a tandem-fly setup (commonly used in fly fishing) pairs two very different types of flies together, each possessing its own unique set of characteristics, in a configuration where superior outcomes are consistently achieved by working in unison. Applicability applies to a wide variety of relationships, to include those of work colleagues, supervisor/subordinates, marital partners, etc. Daniel takes his audience through a list of potential "hazard areas" to avoid in such relationships, providing insight into how interactions, work-plans, and personal relationships can be enhanced.

  • Personal Growth- Seeking a Life of Drag-Free Drift

    Drawing heavily from the lessons in his recent book, Daniel artfully utilizes the fly-fisherman's pursuit of a "drag-free drift" on one's line as a metaphor for achieving a more harmonious existence in life. While not necessarily meaning to "going with the flow," Dan points out that frequent mends in one's line (i.e. conscious adjustments in one's behaviors and approaches to situations) are often necessary to truly achieve a drag-free drift. Whether one has ever fly fished or not, the lessons relayed in this presentation will appeal to a broad-based audience.
