A little about Seamus
Living with non-swearing Tourette Syndrome and ADHD caused Seamus difficulties at school. He didn’t perform as well as expected and he was well on the path to failing.
With few options ahead of him, Seamus turned a corner and decided to never let ‘setbacks’ stand in the way of his dreams. He went on to become a breakfast radio personality and sort-after TV show presenter with amazing career highlights.
A workshop designed to build student skills in Attitude, Resilience and Confidence. Grounded in research, powerful story-telling and group activities, the session is broken into three engaging modules.
How do you work with someone who is neurodiverse? Seamus is here to help guide you on the correct way to work with Tourette Syndrome, ADHD and other neurological conditions for a more inclusive society.
Here’s how it works
Seamus has run successful sessions at universities, high schools and other educational institutions across Australia.

Seamus not only created a safe space to talk about these challenges and normalised ‘flaws’, but used humour to extend this conversation into being proud of difference. The University of Newcastle looks forward to having you back
Rachel - University of Newcastle
Seamus' passion and energy was amazing. He engaged well with the students, many of whom later spoke about feeling a real connection with his story and experiences. His gentle yet powerful approach to addressing the challenges we all will face was something the students could walk away with feeling empowered. He's a great speaker and one we truly want to have come back!
Brent - Emmanuel College
Seamus was a highly engaging presenter and knew just how to read the audience and get them laughing and listening at the same time. His message of acceptance, passion and determination was well received and inspiring to the young men of St Laurence’s College.
Lachlan - St Laurences College
Seamus is thoroughly engaging speaker whose message of motivation, overcoming adversity and aspiration left our young men captivated. His message is powerful and thought provoking as he relays his life journey and the lessons he has learnt. Seamus left our students with clear messages of hope and tangible ways of being true to what they desire in life.
Peter - Padua College
"...Seamus was brilliant at communicating with us in the lead up and post event as well."
Olivia - Barker College
I have no doubt that many students walked away feeling buoyed by Seamus' words and inspired to make their perceived flaws or weaknesses, their very own "superpower".
Matt - Baringa State High School
“What an amazing human! The gift he has given my son is invaluable."
Kellie - Parent
"Seamus authentically presents his story of resilience and naturally captures the attention of young people."
Emily - Child Psychotherapist
Seamus champions the importance of making all in our community aware of neurodiversity. He delivers his personal story that embraces the need for inclusion, acceptance and support for all members of our school community. Seamus delivers this through his own lens that navigates his journey of triumph, despair and struggle – a truly inspiring and motivating session that has allowed our school further conversation in this space.
