The Journey Back
In 2020, millions of Survivor fans got to see 20 previous winners from the reality show’s storied past return for another shot at victory and a $2 million prize. And while each of them had a journey to getting back to the island, season 3 winner Ethan Zohn may have the most inspirational story of them all. Because up until seven years ago, not only was it up in the air whether Ethan would be playing Survivor again in 2020, it was unlikely he would even be alive to see season 40. This keynote tells the story of his journey through cancer and back to the island and what he learned about himself and human beings along the way.

Ethan Zohn | Speaker Biography

Ethan Zohn redefines the word "survivor" in more ways than one. Not only did he win the 1-million-dollar prize on CBS Survivor: Africa, but he also used that victory as a springboard to an extraordinary life of entrepreneurship, social purpose, and advocacy. His journey is nothing short of remarkable, showcasing perseverance, accomplishment, and an enduring spirit in the face of unimaginable challenges.

Originally from Lexington, MA, Ethan is a former professional soccer player who has also conquered cancer not once, but twice. In addition to being a TV personality and author, he is the co-founder of Grassroot Soccer (GRS), an organization that harnesses the power of soccer and the energy of youth to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to improve health. Over the past two decades, Ethan has played a crucial role in shaping the strategic direction of GRS and establishing partnerships that have provided lifesaving education to over 18 million young people in 60 countries.

Ethan's public disclosure of his battles with CD20+ Hodgkin's Lymphoma and his two stem cell transplants has led to him being named a global ambassador for organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, StandUp2Cancer, AKTIV Against Cancer, and First Descents, among others. As an international keynote speaker, Ethan delivers powerful presentations that are deeply rooted in personal strength, inspiring audiences to confront life's questions, challenges, and opportunities with unwavering determination and character. With his remarkable sense of humor, honesty, and vulnerability, he offers keynotes that encourage audiences to view crises as opportunities to make a meaningful impact.

If you are seeking inspiration to weather the storms of life or overcome obstacles at work, tune in to Ethan's story and learn not only how to survive but also how to thrive.
