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.

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 – 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’!
