Speaker: Robert O'Neill
Learn from the man who had Osama Bin Laden in his sights and led the team that killed him. When Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Robert J. O'Neill was a SEAL Team Six leader, he led extractions under enemy fire, tailed terrorists for days, and snuck onto land to meet with sources. His training taught him to be resourceful and make good decisions no matter the circumstances. Now he shares his lessons from these experiences to show you how to achieve what may seem impossible and become the best version of yourself. Based on his book The Way Forward: Master Life’s Toughest Battles and Create Your Lasting Legacy, Robert O’Neill offers audiences a deeper look into how to use hard-earned lessons from both his time in combat and his personal life to accomplish their goals, overcome adversity, and discover the hero within you.
