Simon T. Bailey Thanks Meeting Planners, Speaker Bureaus, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter Followers

55 percent of employed Americans are dissatisfied with their job, and job satisfaction is at a 22-year low, so it’s not surprising that motivational messages are valued by meeting planners as the most appropriate keynote categories. So says a recent survey by Meetings & Conventions Magazine.

“The American workforce has spent the past 24 months in a perpetual state of fear and panic, and it’s taken a tremendous toll on employee engagement”
Simon T. Bailey, author, speaker and personal mentor/coach

“It’s time for organizations to develop an internal stimulus plan to re-energize their people.”

Organizations like Microsoft, Dell Computers, Proctor & Gamble, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Society of Human Resource Management Association and others have retained Bailey often over the past 24 months to motivate employees and re-ignite their organizational/ personal brilliance.

“Organizations that are focused on maintaining high levels of productivity should be troubled by the low levels of job satisfaction, because it has a very real effect on the bottom line,” says Bailey, who was selected in the same meeting professionals poll as one of the industry’s “Best Keynote Presenters ever heard or used” along with notable presenters like Colin Powell, Bill Gates,Tony Robbins (, Sarah Palin ( and Zig Ziglar (

All participants are welcome to workout at their own pace for as little as fifteen minutes or, for those up to the challenge, for the full hour of each session. The activities include fun exercises in a group atmosphere designed to burn fat and firm and tone the entire body.  

Every participant will walk way from this workout with a better understanding of fitness and weight-loss concepts, a feeling of accomplishment and knowledge they helped a worthwhile cause.

In addition, every participant will receive the “Ultimate Tone-It-Up Nutrition Guide” designed to help make healthy dietary choices simple.

“This is just a fun and social way to introduce an alternative to the boring gym workouts and at the same time help out a charity that does so much to feed the hungry, especially in these current economic times,” explains Sally Smith. “Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than having a fun and energizing workout.”
