Our Story

American Confidence Institute (ACI) was started in 2015 as a result of HR.com’s interest in Alyssa Dver’s 5th book, Ms. Informed. Soon after, ACI received ICF accreditation and began offering eclasses, workshops, and coaching certification programs. 

Now recognized as THE confidence experts, the ACI team has trained over 350,000 individuals and certified over 200 coaches from around the world.
