Eric Bailey is a hero who's helped millions of others become one too. Compared to Les Brown and Tony Robbins in Australia, Bailey welds a mighty voice convincing audiences worldwide that "no matter what obstacles you face, use them to your advantage" and that "persistency is power over incredible odds."
Bailey is not just a motivational speaker, but an"" Activational star"" coach; insisting people get off their chairs and flick their "on' switch with an "I can do it!" shout. Comparisons between Tony Robbins and Bailey are inevitable since both are tall, impressive, and have megatons of charisma. However, Bailey's life arc is phenomenal: Born in South Central L.A. with a rare bone disease, his parents gave him up for adoption. Bailey persisted with his dream of becoming a basketball player despite doctors warning against it. When the NBA wouldn't take him, he headed for Australia and played with Australia's NBA International where he rose to stardom. His message is clear: "Activate now! No one can take away your dream."
In the pantheon of speakers, Bailey is at the top of his game. More than 2.5 million have heard his talks and he was awarded the CSP award for excellence in communication. From speaking to at-risk youths to 8,000 corporate financiers, Bailey ignites audiences with a fierce determination to help them all. He says the secret formula to success is: Adaptability, Believability, Credibility, and Durability. Even corporate magnates or entire companies can't afford to be on cruise control and that's where Bailey insists their durability depends on re-energizing themselves.
