Eric Bailey isn't just a speaker; he's a catalyst of transformation. With a dynamic presence that commands attention and a story that resonates across continents, Eric is a powerhouse of motivation. From the professional basketball court to the international stage, Eric's journey has been nothing short of remarkable. His evolution from athlete to motivational speaker mirrors the ascent of a true champion.

Eric's early life could have been a script of despair, but he chose a different path. With unwavering determination, he refused to be defined by his circumstances. Instead, he embraced the challenges as stepping stones, propelling him toward a destiny beyond anyone's imagination.

Born with a bone disease and abandoned by his biological parents, Eric journeyed through the unforgiving streets of South-Central Los Angeles. Rather than succumb, he channelled these struggles to forge strength. In a neighbourhood synonymous with challenges, he unearthed his unbreakable spirit.

A pivotal mentor recognised Eric's potential, propelling him to secure a university education against all odds. Overcoming mental, emotional, physical, and financial hurdles, this marked the inception of his transformative journey.

Although NBA dreams encountered setbacks, Eric's tenacity endured. He ventured to Australia in the early '80s, pioneering the National Basketball League (NBL). While injuries curtailed his playing career, his passion burned on.

For over 30 years, Eric's impact transcends borders. Giants such as Qantas, Footlocker, NBA, Pizza Hut, Robert Walters, John Deere, Scotia Bank, CIMB Bank, Toyota, RE/MAX and many more have sought his transformative insights.

As a Certified Mental Wellness First Aid Coach and Facilitator, Eric possesses the tools to nurture wellbeing. His workshops and keynotes extend across mediums – online, convention centres, boardrooms, classrooms, and even the basketball court. He pioneers groundbreaking team-building activities on the hardwood and offers one-on-one coaching.
