Professional Speaker, Broadcast Analyst, Actor, and Award Winning Singer/Song Writer
Thurl Bailey attended North Carolina State University and was a key player in the 'Wolfpacks' miracle run to the 1983 NCAA Championship. That same year, Thurl led NC State in both scoring and rebounds. The Utah Jazz drafted Thurl in 1983 as the 7th pick of the draft. Jazz management reported that he was selected for the quality of his character, as well as, the quality of his game. This was the beginning of 16 years of his playing professional basketball, 12 of those years were with the NBA.

At 6'11", Thurl Bailey is often first noticed as a basketball player, but he is a man of as much depth as height. His strong sense of service has led to countless hours of volunteer work and to numerous awards for leadership and contributions to the community. Included in his awards are: the NBA's prestigious Kennedy Community Award, the Utah Association for Gifted Children's Community Service Award, Sigma Gamma Chi fraternity's Exemplary Manhood Award, the Great Salt Lake Council of the Boy Scouts of America's American Champion Award and the Italian League's 1998 All Star Games Most Valuable Player. He has directed basketball camps for youth since 1984 where he teaches young people lessons about life and basketball. Many of his students have special needs including coming from disadvantaged backgrounds or having serious illnesses, and they attend the camps on scholarship.

In addition to professional speaking, Thurl is a broadcast analyst for the Utah Jazz and the University of Utah, an actor, and an award winning singer/song writer.

Each of us has untapped potential that lays within us. How do we discover it to achieve a common goal?

Lou also won the National Counterintelligence Executive Award for Community Excellence in leadership for his role in the FBI operation that led to the arrest and deportation of three Russian Intelligence Service illegals.

The first of its kind, Unleash Your Inner Tyrant! helps managers and executives become better leaders by showing them everything they should avoid - including how to create a culture of fear and mistrust, how to oppress and demoralize employees, and how to stand firm in the face of all change - before wrapping up with a serious conversation about the kind of leaders we should all strive to become.
