Introducing... Sebastian Terry

Sebastian Terry is a keynote speaker, top-selling author, motivator and adventurer.

Everyone has at least one thing they have to do before they die. Some even have a list. But how many goals and dreams on this list are actually achieved? 

Affected by the death of a close friend in 2004, Sydney-born Seb experienced a moment in his life where he asked himself a simple question; ‘Am I happy?’. The answer was NO and so he decided to pen down a list of 100 Things that he’d always wanted to achieve.

He then decided to prioritise this list in his life and now some three years on, his life has changed. Over sixty items down, and over $65,000 raised for Camp Quality, the pursuing journey has not only fulfilled himself, but the lives of people all over the world - the journey he calls ‘100 Things’.

Drawing on stories and reflections from his inspirational book 100 Things, Sebastian discusses the issues on the minds of many people in today’s complex world and questions the limits of the notion; “What can but one person do..?”

Seb incorporates visual aids into his talks and highlights powerful and profound messages with dynamic, interactive, and humorous delivery. Depending on time, a member of the audience might even have the opportunity to attempt to break a Guinness World Record live on stage!
