Author of 100 Things & CEO of Kindsum

What's on your list?


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.

Current Work

Ten years later, after dropping everything in his life to pursue his crazy list, 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.

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 organisations. His work has included working with numerous charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation for which he currently serves as an ambassador

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.

Focusing on the psychological aspect of social impact. the Kindsum workshop takes delegates through a series of exercises and fun challenges aimed at strengthening emotional intelligence and creating ideas & actions plans for an ongoing kindness mindset.

Kindsum Community Project
What better way to show how easy kindness can be than to offer a live opportunity for delegates to engage with? Using a unique process that sources a kindness opportunity from your own community, and then allows your delegates to volunteer, we execute a kindness project that will invigorate, unite and inspire everyone involved. Capturing this project on film and editing in accordingly allows an additional opportunity to further spread the powerful message through sharing the content amongst your network and client base.
