Alyson Van Hooser

Alyson Van Hooser, author of the books “Infinite Influence” and “Level Up” and inspirational speaker on leading in the future of work, will be the keynote speaker at the 2023 IAAO Annual Conference in Salt Lake City. She will present during the Conference’s Opening Session, Monday, Aug. 28.

Van Hooser works to help leaders succeed in the complex post-pandemic workforce and knows the pressure and responsibility of breaking through big obstacles to achieve great results — both personally and professionally.

As a trusted resource for managing and leading people, her management experience with Walmart, her leadership experience in the banking and insurance industry, and her election to a city council — all by the age of 30 — equip her to relate authentically with the challenges leaders are facing.

She deeply understands the price of admission to leadership and the keys for leveling up — and how she guides leaders to achieve even greater results. Tough beginnings taught her the power of an ownership mindset, one that transforms the trajectory of your life and helps you achieve audacious goals. Although grit without an effective strategy still leaves success to chance.

In Van Hooser’s book, “Infinite Influence,” she unveils a future-proof, practical, immediately actionable strategy for captivating, connecting with, and compelling people to move forward with you, whether they be customers or employees.

Her results-obsessed inspiration guides people at all stages of their career to make practical changes that drive real-life results. With Van Hooser’s personal and professional strategies for success, her presentations prepare leaders and teams across the country to successfully work together. Audiences return to work both energized and equipped to transform the way they lead themselves and their teams and earn unprecedented success.

Van Hooser lives in Kentucky with her husband, Joe, and their four children Willow, Lincoln, Duke, and Holt. When she’s not working, you can find her dancing with her family in the kitchen … “Alexa, play ‘We Will Rock You.’ ”
