Eric Bailey, ‘switches on’ kids and corporates in time to kick-start the education and business year

Eric Bailey, motivational and activational speaker, former professional athlete and NBL legend, was so hungry to help those in need that he wrote, published and released his new book, Bring Your A Game, within less than a month – just in time for the start of the school and business year. Through his vision and undertakings as a key note speaker, Eric found that his audiences were lacking the guidance needed to move forward and empower their own lives. He seized the opportunity and began to record the story of his life in a way that could be used as a guidebook to help empower teenagers who lacked self-esteem right through to corporates who were looking for success, leadership and achievements in their own careers.

BringYourAGame-bookBased in Brisbane, (Australia) the former NBL player with the Hobart Devils, Melbourne Tigers and Gold Coast Rollers is a regular keynote speaker in the education and corporate sector on a global level. Eric draws on his successful career and his adversity growing up as a young, desperate man in the ‘Hood’ whom withsheer determination and mindset, has gone on to achieve incredible success. His unique and personable way of sharing his life story and lessons learned has connected with over 3 million people worldwide to date and continues to grow at a rapid rate. Eric knows that through his new book, Bring Your A Game, he will be able to help completely transform lives and change individuals, helping them to achieve success despite the challenges they may face.

The book, Bring Your A Game, helps readers navigate the waters of abandonment and anticipation to success and achievement. Based on the former NBL’s professional life as an athlete, Eric shares raw and often bitterly revealing recollections of the discrimination, economic uncertainty, loss and abandonment that served as his initiation into the world. His new book is about overcoming adversity and navigating life’s difficulties, in order to empower those feeling powerless in their own lives to go on to achieve their own personal success.

Eric Bailey says: “Just because you have been abandoned or rejected by society, an organisation or a relationship, that is no reason why you should let those challenges abandon your own goals, dreams and aspirations, if you do, you are missing out on your abundance – if you believe in yourself, and want it bad enough, you have to go out and get it yourself.

Ocean Reeve (Publisher) says: “As Eric’s publisher I have never seen an author write and publish a book that is so amazing and inspirational (and in record time). Eric’s hunger for life has been captured in the messages within his book and I have no doubt that he will go on to help change all who read his book and comes across his path. The importance of his message was so profound that the Inhouse Publishing Team felt compelled to work tirelessly to bring Eric’s book to the market as quickly as possible.

Our company conference would not have had the buzz and excitement without Eric Bailey as our Keynote Speaker. Eric shares his life experiences in a way that brings honesty and touches everyone in the room. He has a great ability of using these personal challenges and relates them to a business environment. He took the time to learn who we were and weaved this knowledge throughout the presentation so that everyone understood how to take his philosophies and ingrain them into our business lives. Thank you Eric for the opportunity and the inspiration you have left with us all.

Charles Harris, Sales Manager, Ford Motor Company
Eric is a shining example of what can be achieved with true grit and determination. He represents ‘Getting Off the Nail’ better than anyone else I have met or listened to. As an inspiring speaker he is engaging, spirited and a true showman. He will supply a tremendous framework to any conference, management seminar or employee away-day. We are incredibly pleased with how well Eric demonstrated his understanding of our objectives and very impressed with the extent to which he tailored his speech to our needs and the audience of Senior executives who left this important conference motivated and inspired. His genuine passion is quite obvious. He inspired us all to embrace the message that it is possible to achieve the seemingly unachievable. His message was focused, powerful, inspirational, and lasting. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Eric Bailey as a speaker.

Eric – our conference attendees enjoyed not only your message, but also the humorous and real-life way in which it was delivered. The ratings you received on our Speaker Evaluation Survey were all “Excellent!” We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Eric – in a world of global diversity you have demonstrated that anything is possible. Your journey from South Central Los Angeles to sharing the stages in 10 different countries with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Tim Ferris, Harry Dent, and world leaders like Prime Minister of Australia John Howard you have shown that colour, race, gender, and religion doesn’t prohibit one from following their DREAMS. Your ability to bring various themes into the motivational speech impressed me, our program committee, and the 800 strong in attendance. We especially liked the tangible objects you gave to each audience member, symbolizing the topic and message you delivered. ‘Getting off the Nail’ will resonate with me and the audience forever. Your presentation was an integral component of our Diversity Theme. We walked away with more than just a few philosophical ideals; we learned how to put diversity and inclusion into action. Eric you are a great role model and inspiration to all that hear you. Keep helping people ‘get off the nail’!
