Sean Conway is an adventurer, extreme endurance athlete, and inspirational speaker. Sean has achieved the holy grail of endurance, what Sean likes to call the 3 Fs: a world’s first, the world’s furthest, and the world’s fastest. Now he holds the world record for the most full-distance triathlons too.
Sean draws on hard-won experience when he shares his story about how a former corporate photographer became an inspiring, world-record-setting, endurance adventurer.
Iron102 – In 2023, Sean achieved 102 consecutive full-distance triathlons, a new world record. Sean swam 2.5 miles, cycled 112 miles, and then put on his running shoes to complete a marathon run of 26.2 miles each day.
First Person to Swim the Length of Britain – In 2015, Sean became the first person to complete the Great British Triathlon: cycling, swimming, and running the length of Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats. The swim was considered impossible, too dangerous, and had never even been attempted
Furthest Ultra Triathlon – In 2016, Sean completed a self-supported continuous Ultra Triathlon around the coast of Britain. Sean cycled 3,350 miles, ran 800 miles, and swam from Brighton to Lulworth Cove to complete the coastal route.
Fastest – In 2018, Sean became the fastest person to cycle the 4000 miles across Europe from Portugal to Russia, solo and unsupported. He completed this in 24 days 18 hours and 39 minutes.
Jay Unwin is a keynote speaker who brings a wealth of lived experience and academic insight to the field of stress management.
As a psychology postgraduate and lifelong student of biology, he’s also navigated personal challenges including burnout, cancer, depression, and managing a chronic stress-related condition – fibromyalgia.
These experiences have not only shaped Jay’s perspective but have driven him to develop an innovative approach to stress management -Stressonomics.
In his early career, Jay was a dedicated science teacher and later, a personal trainer. These roles were not without their challenges – Jay experienced burnout twice, the first incident ending his teaching career and the second causing him to lose his successful personal training business. Additionally, the arrival of his first child added another dimension to his stress landscape. However, each of these instances marked not an endpoint, but a transformation.
Rising from these challenges, Jay created Stressonomics – an integrated approach that turns traditional stress management on its head. Drawing on the latest research from psychology and biology, as well as from the business world, Stressonomics provides a suite of strategies that view stress not as an enemy, but as a tool for growth and performance. Stressonomics addresses the multifaceted nature of stress – its impact on health, productivity, and well-being, and the need for resilience in high-stress environments.
