Jessica Buchanan shares her story of the impossible odds facing her during her 93 days of captivity by Somali land pirates and her determination and efforts to survive the harrowing and most painful experience of her life. In sharing her story with audiences she provides to use in everyday life to help find strength in any situation or challenge. They will be surprised to find that you can scrape out just enough to get through that day. It may not be more than enough—but just enough has got to be ok, and as Buchanan experienced day after day after day—just enough will do just fine.

Change is an inevitable part of life. Whether the change is something you have chosen or if the change has chosen you, the one thing you ALWAYS have is a choice. Through sharing the dramatic story of her rescue by SEAL Team Six after being held hostage by Somali Pirates, New York Times Bestselling Author, Humanitarian, and Survivor, Jessica Buchanan will show you how to become a collaborator with change and create the strategies you need to survive and thrive. Through story-telling and practical exercises, Jessica teaches you the lessons she learned during her 93-day captivity that will show you how to build a collaborative mindset that empowers you to optimize change. Jessica will walk you through activities that invite contemplation, create a new definition of change, and launch you into a space of abundant growth and success.


Jessica Buchanan is a wonderful ambassador for our Navy SEAL Foundation. During her life and death struggle in an austere environment, she never quit. Like
the U.S. Navy SEALs who came to her rescue, Jessica’s faith in herself and her loved ones triumphed over evil in the most daunting of circumstances. She speaks from the heart, and offers an articulate, inspirational message of hope and courage. Jessica Buchanan’s humanitarian work, then and now, continues to make a positive difference in the world.
