Sebastian is a changemaker, best-selling author and thought leader. Residing in LA, California, Seb still has a cheeky Australian accent and his passion for life is evident in everything he does, from surfing and traveling, to writing and keynoting.
With 12 years of keynoting, Seb continues to create huge impact from stage through the experiences he customizes, ultimately connecting and transforming his audiences in ways only he can.
Coining the phrase, The Passion Effect, Seb’s passion to see others achieve has seen him use his one-of-a-kind story and custom models to create a positive ripple for peak performance, wellbeing and thriving workplace culture.
Shocked by the death of a close friend in his mid-twenties, Sebastian 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 100things that he hoped would bring him closer to a sense of happiness, if not purpose, in life.
Dropping everything, Seb has been chasing down the goals on his list and teaching others how to do the same for over 15 years.
From Marrying a Stranger in Vegas (Goal #2) and Delivering a Baby (#23), to Living on a Deserted Island for 1 week (#63) and even helping a quadriplegic man complete a half marathon by pushing him (#26), Sebastian’s story has been turned into a bestselling book, his own reality show and a renowned keynote that has inspired millions of people around the world.
The impact of time and experience has helped shape Seb’s journey from the pursuit of fun and exciting life goals to the realization that these strategies transfer to the mechanics of organizational health. Complemented with his breakout sessions and additional virtual programming, Seb ensures that his inspiration and motivation is supported with ongoing frameworks that allow long-term change in the audiences he is fortunate enough to meet.

Staff engagement and motivation has increased massively since Seb’s keynote & workshop and we’re progressing as a unified team with smiles in our faces. 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.
Thank you again for participating in our Forum last week. Your session was the perfect way to end our 2 days, leaving colleagues with your inspiring messages. Your story about the marathon especially impacted many of our colleagues. There was just a handful of us in the auditorium (all other viewers were remote), and each colleague in the auditorium had something to share as a result of your presentation, so thank you! It was a pleasure working with you Sebastian, and your flexibility and professionalism was greatly appreciated every step of the way.
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. Sebastian was interesting and HILARIOUS! And SUPER nice! Book him! You won't be disappointed!
Sebastian's enthusiasm is infectious, his lust for life 100% genuine, and 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 was terrific! I enjoyed the breakout session as much as the general session. We were able to dive in and walk out with an action plan. It’s clear that he is passionate about not just accomplishing his 100 things, but also helping others achieve their goals as well.
