The world has changed and we’re changing with it.

NSA NYC is here more than ever to support you on your speaking journey.

Each monthly Chapter Meeting features learning from incredible speakers who are experts in their fields – sharing insights and examples of how to evolve our businesses. In addition, each meeting contains interactive and networking components to model innovation, engagement and connection as we navigate this massive shift together.

Spark Your Comeback 

Forward-thinking thought leaders understand that fortitude is the new attitude. In a world of economic uncertainty and radical transformation, speakers are poised to spark new possibilities. You will learn how to reset, realign, and re-emerge as an original voice instead of an annoying echo.

In this fast-paced virtual experience, you will learn:

  • What to do when six figures of contracted revenue disappear in seven days and you still have to pay alimony, college tuition, mortgage, and provide financial support for your family?
  • How to be Paid to Think instead of Paid to Speak
  • Shift from a Speaking Model to a Content Distribution Model


Just a side note…

Hi NSA NYC, I am Simon T. Bailey. I could attempt to impress you with my awards, accolades, and social media following. That’s boring and does nothing for you. Here’s the real deal…

I am perfectly imperfect. I am flawed. I’ve failed at many things and when I was promoted to Sales Director at Disney Institute, I was a boss with an agenda instead of a leader with a vision. Professionally, I was successful on the outside but insignificant on the inside. I was going through the motions because I had settled for a chair, a check, and a cup of coffee in cubicle farm.

One day I realized that I wanted to be significant instead of successful. What about you? If you want to be significant, then NSA NYC family, please join me for a two-part conversation on January 8, 2021.

Simon T. Bailey believes you are meant to share your brilliance. His passion and purpose is unlocking that ability in a way that ignites sustainable transformation. He understands the pressure leaders and high performers are facing in the midst of uncertainty and equips them with simple, easy-to-implement strategies to accelerate results.

Recognized by Washington Speakers Bureau as one of the 12 business speakers who embolden audiences to think big and lead with purpose and by BigSpeak! as one of the top sales kickoff speakers for 2020, Simon knows how to challenge an audience and effect transformational change within an organization. LinkedIn Learning features three of his online courses that reach professionals in 100 countries.

Simon has more than 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, including serving as sales director for Disney Institute, and has worked with more than 1,800 organizations in 47 countries. He has been named one of the top 25 people who will help you reach your business and life goals by SUCCESS magazine, joining a list that includes Brene Brown, Tony Robbins, and Oprah Winfrey. His Goalcast video, released on Facebook, has over 87+ million views worldwide. When he is not working, Simon spends quality time with his children, roots for the Buffalo Bills, and serves as a board member for the U.S. Dream Academy, Orlando Health Foundation Board, and World Maker International.
