John Walsh shares moving tales about ordinary people who make an extraordinary impact to illustrate that anyone can make a difference if they direct their passion toward a lifelong cause. 

A renowned victims’ rights advocate, John was a leading force behind the founding of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children before serving as host of the long-running television show America’s Most Wanted. Following the phenomenal success of AMW, John was featured for four seasons on The Hunt, first on CNN before moving to HLN. The show has been credited with the capture of 12 more fugitives. A successor to the show, In Pursuit with John Walsh which airs on Investigation Discovery.

Sadly, his dedication to the issue is rooted in the tragic 1981 abduction and murder of his six-year-old son, Adam. 

On stage, John recounts how he channeled the pain of his son's untimely death into a lifelong mission to help others. At the same time, he calls on audiences to advocate for causes they are passionate about, while delivering important insights and strategies for identifying allies who support their cause.
