Sean Allen speaks for a living.
He talks to schools, sporting groups, corporate groups and individuals.
His talks centre around his experiences as a surfer on the Amazon River, surviving heart disease and a skirmish with depression. He educates through sharing his experiences whilst never losing sight of the comedy that exists in every situation, no matter how serious the event may seem.
At 50, having open heart surgery and making a remarkable return to surfing and martial arts, his story is designed to make you think that life is a challenge, a gift and a chance to learn about yourself. It may make you cry at times, but all worthwhile endeavours are supposed to be difficult.
Sean is living proof that we all have an opportunity to contribute. To our families, to our businesses, to our communities.
Surfing the Amazon - From dreaming to screaming.
In 2005, Sean Allen became the first Australian surfer to surf the Rio Mearim in the Amazon River. This part of the river hosts a natural phenomenon called the Pororoca, or Great Thunder - a result of the gravitational pull of the moon on the tide and the passage of the largest river in the world. When these two forces come together, they combine to make a rideable wave that lasts for two hours. Dealing with Piranha, Alligators and Anaconda, Sean Allen recounts the story in vivid detail.
Business and Stress - Is it good for us or not?
It's not what happens to us, it's our reaction.
We all know it, but does it really make a difference?
Competition and Stress. How to focus when your body tells you to run.
Sean Allen has judged, refereed and trained competitors to compete in the ring at national level.
