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. 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 while helping others do the same.

We all want more wellbeing and less stress in our personal and professional lives. Many organizations allocate a great deal of resources to wellbeing programs, stress prevention plans and the development of resilient skillsets. But, despite all this effort, engagement and productivity stay low, relationships hinder progress, customer service suffers, innovation stalls, and chronic stress and burnout are becoming more and more common. So, what is going on? Is the global epidemic of stress a sign of our times? Is it a product of 21st-century living? Or have our current approaches passed their sell-by date? Dorothy Martin is an expert in national policy in areas of workplace health and wellbeing as well as mental health. She has consulted with organizations such as the NHS, John Lewis & Partners, M&C Saatchi, Dorchester Hotel, Regent’s University London and many more, and has received special recognition from the Mayor of London for her work on organizational wellbeing. She is uniquely placed not only to answer these questions, but more importantly to help people understand how to unlock wellbeing and turn stress into success to bring about the results they really want. Dorothy doesn’t teach techniques or strategies. She will not add to your ‘to-do’ list. She won’t even ask you to make any changes at work or in life. She invites you to look in a completely different direction – one that is completely overlooked and often missing in our current conversation about stress, mental health and wellbeing. She asks important questions such as: where do stress and wellbeing really come from? She blends research and neuroscience with heart-warming stories to explain the mechanics of the human mind, challenging our beliefs and deeply ingrained ways of thinking. Most importantly, she makes it easy to use this knowledge to transform chronic stress into a doorway of opportunity to more wellbeing, productivity and extraordinary success.
