TuDiabetes Live interview with Sébastien Sasseville, motivational speaker with T1D


Sebastien Sasseville was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2002. In 2008, he became the first Canadian with type 1 diabetes to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Several years later Sebastien competed in the mythical Sahara Race in Egypt, a 250km self-supported ultra-marathon.

From mount Everest to the Sahara, Sebastien Sasseville had to reinvent himself to succeed.

Sebastien obtained a Communications degree from Laval University in Quebec City, and has dedicated his career to inspiring and motivating audiences of all kinds. A climber, endurance athlete and Ironman, Sebastien has delivered more than 100 keynotes addresses since 2005. He is now a member of Team Novo Nordisk.

Sebastien is a charismatic speaker who provokes deep reflection and drives audiences to action. Using his fascinating life story, he motivates work teams, enables them to overcome all obstacles, and guides them to new summits.

In the spirit of sharing the dream, Sebastien has led groups of teens living with type 1 diabetes to the summit of the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro (2005) and to Mount Everest Base camp in Nepal (2007).
