Known worldwide for pursuing an incredible list of 100 Things that he wants to achieve before he dies, Sebastian Terry’s story is surprisingly not about a bucket list. It’s about something more far reaching; permission, choice, growth and connection.
Affected by a curious mind and the death of a close friend, Sebastian 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.
Following his heart and armed with nothing but a list, Sebastian's incredible story has grown from an entertaining tale of adventure into a global philanthropic movement that engages a growing tribe of hundreds of thousands to not just set meaningful goals, but pull the trigger and achieve them - all whilst helping others do the same.
“I thought initially that it would take me 100 Things to reach a state of fulfilment but it’s taken me 72 things to realise that ‘ticks’ are just the beginning. The key to growth and happiness is finding out who you are on a primal level and then being that person, each and every day.”
Turned into a bestselling book (‘100 Things’), a Discovery Channel documentary (‘100 things to do before you die’) and most recently a US-based reality TV show (‘100 Things) where Sebastian travels the world helping complete strangers achieve their specific dreams, 100 Things inspires people and organisations to gain perspective, think big and be the best they can be on every level so that others can follow suit.
From marrying a stranger in Las Vegas, delivering a baby in Canada and even representing the Mauritian national rugby team at the African Championships (they won!), Sebastian’s most profound moment was when he was first contacted by a suicidal stranger who needed help.
100 Things is no longer about one person, it’s about everyone.
Guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and inspire motivation, the 100 Things keynote is like no other and will re-engage, connect and inspire your organisation to move forward as one.
What’s on your list?
Delivered with candidness and humour, Sebastian's interactive and motivating story includes amazing photography, hilarious videos attached with a message for everyone. He will not only entertain and engage a crowd, but he'll leave everyone wanting to put together their very own list.
Seb now also offers a one hour workshop following his keynote where the focus shifts and puts the emphasis on the individuals in attendance. Seb steps his audience through a series of exercises that allows them to realise what areas in their lives (work, social and community) they can give attention to. He then works with them on setting appropriate goals and then taking the first steps to achieve them.
Seb only wears thongs, and his presentation on stage is done without any shoes on ... It's just another point of difference!
