Inspiring school kids across Australia
Sam Bailey has a dream....to have an impact on every school age child across Australia. Ultimately he hopes to achieve that goal by becoming the first quadriplegic in the world to fly a helicopter and fly into schools to speak. Meanwhile, he's spreading the word travelling in a more conventional way…by car.
He delivers 4 key messages:
- Lesson One: Wear a seat belt and don't speed; and if you choose to do the wrong thing…think about the possible consequences.
- Lesson Two: Try everything, even if you think you can't do it because most of the time you’ll discover you actually can do it afterall.
- Lesson Three: People who say you can't do something are actually helping you. It's up to you to prove them wrong!
- Lesson Four: Value your family, friends and the community you live in because when things go wrong they’re the ones who will support you.
"The students and staff at Marist College were privileged to hear the insights of Sam Bailey and his wife Jenny. You could have 'heard a pin drop' as 150 students sat riveted to every word. Drama, humour, wisdom - the speech had every aspect of a genuine life changing experience. A wonderful opportunity for any young person on the cusp of adulthood," - Marie Martin, Principal, Marist College, Emerald. (August 2010).
Sam and Jenny Bailey donate a FREE copy of "Head Over Heels" to every school where Sam speaks to be placed in the library.
