My name is Kevin Hoffberg. Think of me as an advisor to advice givers. It’s nice to meet you.
At different times over the past forty years I have been a consultant, author, speaker, executive, and entrepreneur . . . the constant has been advice.
That advice has taken many forms over the past forty years. A lot of it was straight-up advice paid for by the hour, day, or project. I’ve also packaged my advice in the form of sales, service, marketing, customer experience, coaching, and leadership training programs, workshops, and seminars that tens of thousands of advice givers have been through. There was a point in the late 80’s when I was one of the few people specialized in helping credentialed professionals (attorneys, accountants, IT consultants, ad-men) learn how to sell.
I have worked as a lone wolf, worked in partnership with others, started some companies, and worked for companies that others started. Whatever your business form, I’ve probably done it.
My clients have been organizations large and small. Many of the companies you’ve heard of . . .
CapitalOne, Lloyds/TSB, EDS, Russell Investments, Union Bank, Teletech, Wells Fargo, FleetBank, Microsoft, Bank of America, Regions Bank, Sony, Colgate, Young & Rubicam, Sears, CIBC, Arthur Andersen (long, long before Enron), Ernst & Young, KPMG, United Utilities, and Colonial First State (Aus). Many others you probably haven’t. None of them ever asked for their money back, and most would even tell you that the work I did made a difference.
The past five years I was Managing Director, Marketing for Russell Investment’s US intermediary sold business. During that time I spent a lot of time with advisors . . . a lot of it listening to them about their advice giving but also giving them advice about how to make their process better.
I know something about advice . . .
I’ve made a lot of money giving advice. I’ve helped clients win millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions, and even billions in new client mandates, assignments, and engagements (just different words for the same idea). If you’re reading this it means you have a need.
So how can I help you?
