Being neurodivergent, Seamus has first-hand experience on building mental strength from a young age. He has a range of methods to get your students activated and considering ways they can overcome Adversity, build Resilience and gain Confidence.
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.

Be inspired to conquer the world as Seamus share his triumphant journey overcoming the challenges associated with Tourette Syndrome to work on TV and pursue a career in the public eye.

On the day...
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!
“What an amazing human! The gift he has given my son is invaluable."
"Seamus authentically presents his story of resilience and naturally captures the attention of young people."
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.
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
"...Seamus was brilliant at communicating with us in the lead up and post event as well."
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.
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".
What an amazing human! The gift he has given my son is invaluable. Seamus went above and beyond, gave such an inspirational talk and spent time talking with my son about his journey with Tourette’s. His talk was so well received that I had many “Thankyous” from the children afterwards and multiple messages from parents that evening saying their children came home talking about Seamus and the points he discussed. Thank you Seamus, my son has a new hero!
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.
