"A note to advise and thank you, my youngest son is a student at St Teresa’s Catholic college and saw your presentation at the school yesterday, afterwards you spoke to him one on one and I just wanted to let you know how important this moment was for him. It was, for him, a personal epiphany. As a relative stranger in a short conversation you were able to make a connection with him that ignited a spirit within him that his father and I have been trying to light for the past 3 years. He finds it hard to articulate to me the actual reasons for this but he is convinced that it was you personally that made the difference, he said that if he heard the same words you spoke uttered from me, or a hundred different people he said it would not have had the same effect as the effect that you had. Although he has had our loving parental support and the ‘not so loving’( but usual) familial support of two older siblings he hasn't had the easiest of childhoods. This has been for various reasons which include bullying, an eating disorder and diagnosed OCD. School life for my young man is an ongoing struggle and after yesterday I think both he and I both see light at the end of what seemed a very dim tunnel. I am not sure if you are able to offer any ongoing advice or support or whether in fact he will require this. I just wanted you to know how worthwhile your contact with my son has been." (Alison Fisk - St Teresa's Catholic College, Noosaville)

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 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’!

"Hey Eric! My daughter goes to St Mary's College in Ipswich and she came home today all buzzy about this great speaker "Eric Bailey" and then I realised "I know that guy!!" days??? Anyways, just wanted to say hi. Looks like you're doing good things - the excitement Jazz came home today with is a good indication! I have never seen her like this before. She wants me to help her more with her goals. You have changed my daughter and the way she feels about herself. Hope all is well in your world..." (Angie - St. Mary's College, Ipswich)

"Hi Eric, My daughter goes to Redcliffe SHS and you recently spoke there. When I picked her up from school she had a look of astonishment and was just so excited. She is so shy and unmotivated all of the time. She said the "tall black man has changed her life forever." (Hope that didn't offend you). But our family is so grateful for you for taking the time to save lives. I mean that literally. We have changed our daily routine and she has a picture of you on her wall and a goal poster. I have a son that will be in the year level next year. Can't wait for him to hear you speak. Thank you again."
(Gail - Redcliffe SHS, Redcliffe)
