Speaking Testimonials


"I started this camp 34 years ago and Bailey was the best speaker we've ever had, because her message came from the heart."


- Bert Hammell, ABA Camp Director & Head Men's Basketball Coach at Merrimack College

"Bailey grabbed the attention of the team with her personal story and related a wonderful perspective to them. She challenged our guys to think and respond - our guys grew because of Bailey's presentation."


- John Casey, Head Tufts University Baseball Coach


"Bailey came into my 7th and 8th grade class and absolutely captivated the audience. The students were hanging on to every word she spoke and walked away with incredible life lessons. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that she made an impact on my students that day and the things they heard from her will serve them well in their daily lives."


- Kimberly Kastuk, Middle School Physical Education Teacher, Life Skills Coordinator at St. Anne's-Belfield Middle School


"Bailey O'Brien was more than awesome. She is a remarkable and inspiring young woman with an incredible story to tell—a story of survival, hope, friendship, love and faith. Bailey captivated her audience with words that flowed straight from her heart. The emotion that Bailey brought to her words was overwhelming. Everybody needs to hear Bailey speak."

- Scott Auker, EXIT Realty 


"I had the pleasure of meeting Bailey O’Brien through Jon Gordon’s weekly newsletter. Having read his glowing and inspirational story of Bailey, I decided to call her and invite her to our Annual EXIT Mid-Atlantic Agent Retreat Day. The theme for our event was “Inspirational” and Bailey WOWWED the audience with her touching and courageous story! It’s not often that you can meet a complete stranger and, after only 15 minutes of talking to her, you feel that you have created a special bond that will last for years to come. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me after the event and raved about Bailey, or how many gathered around Bailey to learn more. She truly is a dynamite speaker that has a story to tell that touches the heartstrings of every person in the audience. Our mission at EXIT Mid-Atlantic is to help create awareness within our organization and other organizations that are looking to book an inspirational speaker. Bailey O’Brien is certainly the type of person that will motivate and inspire people to appreciate everyday living with kindness and gratitude."


- Carol A. McDaniel, Regional Owner EXIT Mid-Atlantic 


"We are so glad that Bailey was our Keynote Speaker last night. Her speech was inspirational, personal and honest. The advice she gave to our students was deeply profound. We know it took a lot of strength and courage for Bailey to share her story with the audience last night and for that we are truly humbled and grateful."
