From disengaged and stagnant to purpose-driven and fully activated, Sebastian Terry’s inspirational and motivational keynotes are powerful catalysts for personal growth and organizational transformation. He has worked with some of the world’s largest organizations, including Google, Berkshire Hathaway, Bank of America, and McKesson, showing them how to leverage his framework to unlock peak performance, drive deep connection, and foster meaningful collaboration through building workplace cultures rooted in wellness and purpose.

Terry is known worldwide as the founder of the 100 Things movement. Shocked by the death of a close friend in his mid-twenties, Terry experienced a moment of deep reflection where he asked himself a simple question, am I happy? The answer was no. Terry created a list of 100 things that he hoped would bring him closer to a sense of happiness in life, if not purpose. This set him on a course that completely transformed his life. He has spent the 16 years pursuing and achieving his most audacious goals, creating a ripple effect of positive change in others along the way.

From delivering a baby (#23) to living on a deserted island for one week (#63) and helping a quadriplegic man complete a half marathon (#26), Terry’s incredible story has inspired a bestselling book, two international documentaries, and a hit reality TV show. He is also a renowned keynote speaker who has inspired millions of people and influenced thousands of organizations and Fortune 500 companies around the world.

Client reviews

  • THANK YOU for your session at our Sales Kick Off yesterday. The feedback was INCREDIBLE!!! The messaging was perfectly aligned to set up our “Journey Past 100”, and we already have heaps of people uploading their videos of three things from their list on our Veeam Tube video platform, so the fun continues!

  • Sebastian Terry is an incredibly inspirational guy who has done extraordinary things with his life. His stories, philosophies, tools, and processes will unleash anyone’s ability to put aside procrastination and prioritize what’s truly important to them in living a happier and healthier life. Time with Seb is a gift and one my whole team and I will forever be grateful for – it’s nothing short of life changing.

  • Sebastian Terry recently spoke at one of our virtual events, streaming live via Zoom, Youtube, and Facebook. With over 100 attendees from financial services in Australia, Seb held the audience enthralled throughout the presentation — no mean feat from LA via a virtual conference call!

    Seb has an incredibly authentic and engaging manner. In addition to being a gifted storyteller, he has a beautiful sense of the audience, such that they were engaging via chat, asking questions, and were completely connected to his story and his mission. I can only imagine how great Seb would be in person!

    I highly recommend Sebastian Terry as a speaker for any event where you want to inspire, laugh, and really connect your audience with a deeper message.

  • It’s only every once in a while I feel so strongly about a speaker that I want to recommend them… and this is one of those times. Our members can be a tough audience to please.  With hiring Sebastian, we definitely went a little outside the box for our group and, admittedly, I held my breath up until he was a couple of minutes into his presentation — and… they LOVED him!

    After his presentation, our members lined up to meet him and take photos with him, which almost never happens. So, what I’m saying is — book him! You won’t be disappointed!

  • Sebastian was a keynote speaker at McGrath Estate Agents annual Kickstart conference 2019. It was a pleasure to work with him as his high level of professionalism and general passion was evident from start to finish. He delivered a keynote presentation that was exciting, engaging, down to earth, and inspiring. He kept things real which was a perfect addition to the event.

  • Sebastian had the daunting task of opening on the morning after an epic, and very late, event party and he certainly delivered. The aim was to leave people inspired, despite the late night, and he did this through an emotional and heartfelt session which had us all in tears — laughing and crying simultaneously! His enthusiasm is infectious and his lust for life 100% genuine. Just days after the event we had people lining up to help him on his journey. We cannot recommend him highly enough as a motivational speaker and an all-round nice guy!

  • Sebastian is entertaining, engaging, and fun. He shared his incredibly uplifting life story with our employees, and inspired everyone in the room. Sebastian easily communicates how we can all make a difference, either directly helping others or by being the connection needed in the world.

  • Event attendees can often feel “PowerPoint-ed to death” after a three-day conference. Having Sebastian as our keynote speaker was more than just another presentation. Aside from inspiring our attendees within their personal lives through his stories, advice, and acts of kindness, Sebastian taught us all how to take words of wisdom and turn them into actionable items that tie into our business and relationships with colleagues, and to approach every opportunity with a different perspective.
