About Sebastian Terry

‘In case of an emergency oxygen masks will fall from the ceiling. Please put yours on first before helping others’

Inspired by the death of a close friend, Sebastian Terry experienced a moment in his life where he asked himself a simple question; ‘Am I happy?’. 

The answer was NO and so he created a list of 100 Things that he hoped would help him find happiness .

Ten years later, after dropping everything in his life to achieve the ultimate bucket list (#23 Deliver a Baby, #67 Live on a Deserted Island for 1 Week, #26 Help a Stranger, etc), Sebastian’s story has grown from an adventurous tale into a global philanthropic movement that engages a growing tribe of hundreds of thousands to set meaningful goals, achieve our biggest dreams and help others in need.

“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. The icing on the cake is then helping others and being of service”

This evolution into the kindness space has spawned the birth of Kindsum, a peer-to-peer platform, activating acts of kindness in the general public and within organizations..

As a keynote speaker, Sebastian inspires organisations to gain perspective, think big and be the best they can be on every level so that others can follow suit, beit family, peers, clients or customers.

Guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and inspire motivation, the 100 Things & Kindsum keynotes are like no other and will re-engage, connect and inspire your organisation to move forward as one.

Turned into a best selling book, an ESPN documentary and most recently a US-based reality TV show, Sebastian’s growing platforms are creating impact in and out of workplaces around the world.
