Nextgen leaders is all about making the most of opportunities and creating an amazing network of likeminded individuals who all wish success for themselves and those around them. The group is a new initiative of the Coffs Harbour Chamber of Commerce and its aim is to provide under 40 year old professionals development and networking opportunities in an open and social environment.
Our values are centred around Networking, Development, Impact and Openness. We see this group as providing an open and collaborative culture where ideas generation, innovation and progression are core aims.
When: Thursday, 30th May 6.00pm 2013 at Surf Club Restaurant and Bar
Join us to hear from the awe-inspiring Sebastian Terry from 100 things on how his journey of achieving his challenging and highly-interesting bucket list has shaped his life in a truly profound way.
Everyone has at least one thing they have to do before they die. Some even have a list. But how many goals and dreams on this list are actually achieved?
In 2009, at the ripe-old age of 27, Sebastian realised that like most people, he has not achieved anything on his long-forgotten list.?? The death of a close friend combined with a naturally abstract view on life sparks a moment of clarity. In the midst of overseas trip, Sebastian decides to put pen to paper and re-create a list of 100 Things. His goal, to tick off everything, is the start of a crazy, no holds barred adventure that has seen Sebastian travel to the ends of the earth on a quest to prove that anything is possible, including true fulfilment.
60 items down, and over $90,000 raised for CampQuality, the pursuing journey has not only offered him fulfilment, but has also started a movement that inspires others to chase their own dreams and help others do the same.
Made into a book, a Discovery Networks documentary and an global on-line community, this journey he calls ‘100 Things’ has inspired many others around the globe to do the same and pursue happiness through their '100 things' list.
Sebastian will share some of the fascinating and crazy experiences he has pursued in order to achieve some of the items on his list including: sky diving naked, getting bowled an over by Steve McGrath, achieving a Guiness World Record and marrying a stranger in Vegas, just to name a few - we know you'll love it!
