FROM MT EVEREST TO THE SAHARA Change, agility and transformation

A keynote by Sébastien Sasseville

From mount Everest to the Sahara, to the Race Across America, Sébastien had to adapt to survive and conquer. Supported by cinematic visuals, this awe-inspiring keynote helps organisations and individuals to adopt an enthusiastic posture toward change.

Endurance athletes like Sebastien must continually adapt to new environments. Your audience will be motivated by Sébastien’s mind blowing adventures and inspired to take a first step, to embrace change and to change first and proactively to win.

For a successful transformational journey, we must always remember why we seek to evolve. To stay relevant, to serve and to continue to bring value, we must accept to change to how, to continue to serve the why. Sébastien’s accomplishments are made more impressive by the fact that he lives with type 1 diabetes. The disease, an obstacle he did not choose, adds a massive layer of complexity to all his endeavours. Sebastien overflows with optimism and his story is a testament that adversity can be transformed in opportunity.

Sébastien Sasseville has spoken globally for clients such as SAP, Amazon, Johnson & Johnson, L’Oréal, Hewitt, Airbus, and KPMG.
