Sujo John

is an international motivational speaker and a humanitarian who was launched into public speaking following his survival experience of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, on New York’s World Trade Centers.

He is a visionary who is known for being a developer of ideas that impact people in ways that would not be evident without his ability to recognize the need for restoration. He is a skilled leader who values the relationships he has cultivated with people from every walk of life.


Sujo’s greatest mission in life to act upon the responsibility we bear to take action when we see things going wrong in the world, leaving the world a better place than we found it. Sujo feels life is an incredible adventure if you are willing to leave the safe harbor and catch the wind.

Because of this, today, he shares his story of hope and resilience to assemblies at universities, sporting events, Fortune 500 companies, and festivals in hundreds of cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

In the Press

He has been featured in national and international media, including the National Geographic, BBC, CBC, Associated Press, The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Times-London, Times of India, and the National Post.

Fight Against Modern Slavery

Sujo is the founder of YouCanFreeUs, an international human rights organization fighting modern slavery worldwide through advocacy, rescue, and rehabilitation. His fight against modern slavery has encouraged a network of global leaders to raise its voice against the evil of our times. YouCanFreeUs presently operates safes houses, training centers, and strategic intervention hubs in the USA, Canada, UK, India, and Norway.

His most recent initiative has been to mobilize Luxembourg’s global financial investment community to create a slavery-free world.
