What started as one man’s journey to find purpose in life has grown into a global movement of people chasing their dreams and helping others do the same.
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?
In 2009, at the ripe-old age of 27, Sebastian realised that like most people, he has not achieved anything on his long-forgotten list. The death of a close friend combined with a naturally abstract view on life sparks a moment of clarity. In the midst of overseas trip, Sebastian decides to put pen to paper and re-create a list of 100 Things. His goal, to tick off everything. It’s the start of a crazy, no holds barred adventure that sees Sebastian travel to the ends of the earth on a quest to prove that anything is possible, including true fulfillment.
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 and minimal savings, the progression of this story, which turned into a best-selling book and a Discovery Channel documentary, has gone onto inspire people and organisations globally to not just set meaningful goals, but pull the trigger and achieve them, whilst helping others do the same.
Telling his unique story while integrating the principles of goal setting, altering mindset, benefiting from change, the art of achievement, opportunity creation and helping others, Sebastian's keynote is like no other.
From marrying a stranger in Las Vegas to delivering a baby in Canada, it's now the story of how lives have been turned around and saved that drives Sebastian and his 100 Things movement.
Guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and motivated, Sebastian Terry's 100 Things keynote will re-engage, connect and inspire your organisation to move forward as one.

Goals – Growth – Connection
Appealing to the core of everybody, the 100 Things keynote has influenced tens of thousands of people from students to CEO’s throughout Australia and beyond. Delivered in 5 continents to date, Sebastian’s presentation offers perspective to individuals to assist them in finding purpose whether it be on a personal level, a business level or within the greater community.
Testing the limits of the notion; “What can but one person do..?”, Sebastian Terry is genuinely driven by a desire to help people and spread positivity throughout communities.
In just three years, Sebastian (‘Seb’) has traveled the world ticking over sixty items from his 100 Things list in a pioneering and courageous personal journey that has become a public campaign to evoke change in lives and communities. Delving a lot deeper than just the creation of list, this movement has now acted as a catalyst for the concept of ‘People Helping People’, where by strangers world wide now reach out and help one another. All of this has been translated into an internationally sold book now translated into 3 languages (so far!), a world-wide documentary with a leading adventure channel and an ever-evolving keynote presentation.
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; including:
The positivity that emerges from adversity;
The wonder of stepping out of one’s comfort zone;
Personal empowerment and development;
Process of achievement;
The art and power of helping others through leadership and community; and
Much more (topic and theme requests happily accepted)
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!
