Daniel Howard CEO Jobmatch Employment
"Seamus Evans delivered a vibrant, energetic, inspiring and motivating presentation for our students. His ability to share his story, his battles and struggles, as he learned to manage, live with, and then thrive with his perceived disability becoming his "superpower" and an asset rather than a hinderance in his successes. Seamus was funny and entertaining, while also showing vulnerability and honesty in sharing his story with the students.
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".

The monotony of hotel quarantine turned to variety when members of the Australian Paralympic Team had the opportunity to listen and engage with Seamus Evans. It was an inspiring session, where Seamus cleverly brought understanding to Tourette Syndrome with a beautiful sense of humour and enthusiasm. Seamus is engaging, the content is informative and he captures the audience with his vulnerability.

Handling Tourette’s? How do you handle someone who is neurodiverse?
Equality in the workplace and schoolyard is important in our modern society. As we move closer to a fully inclusive world nobody should be ‘off the table’ for employment or education opportunities.
I work very closely with a child and adolescent psychiatrist to educate teachers and staff on the correct way to manage someone with Tourette Syndrome, ADHD and many of neurological conditions for a more inclusive society.
75% of the worlds population are more scared of speaking in public than they are of DYING! Master the fear of public speaking, harness those nerves and conquer the stage, boardroom, executives office and shine bright like a diamond.
