Seamus was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and ADHD at the age of 10.
Feeling incredibly bored and disengaged at school, Seamus was more interested in making people laugh and distracting the class.
As a result of not taking school seriously, Seamus failed school and hated hard physical labour so was stuck with limited career options.
But Seamus already knew what he wanted to be when he ‘grew up’… a TV host!
How does a ‘dumb’ kid with ADHD, Tourette Syndrome and an attention span shorter than this sentence land a job entertaining Australia?
Hear his story to find out.
After 13 years hosting TV shows, performing stand-up comedy and being on breakfast radio Seamus is now a professional speaker giving keynote talks all over the country.
Seamus shares his incredible journey of overcoming the challenges associated with Tourette Syndrome to work on TV and pursue a career in the public eye. Clinically diagnosed with depression and anxiety Seamus has had his fair share of self-appointed set-backs.
With daily changes compounding into significant results Seamus developed his own method of building resilience and changing a flaw into a strength, with only three ingredients, Acceptance, Passion and Determination.
His hilarious and vulnerable keynotes go into detail through his tricks to keep ‘mentally healthy’, maintain a positive attitude and grow from strength to strength encouraging others to do the same.
Now as a professional keynote speaker and ambassador for Tourette Syndrome Seamus is taking his ‘mind-set recipe’ to encourage Australians to turn their flaws into SUPERPOWERS so we can run with resilience, dance with adversity and conquer with confidence.
