Gary's Media CV

Please note that Gary introduces himself by way of a short video clip, but it would still be appropriate to have the Master of Ceremonies say the following when introducing Gary...

SHORT CV to introduce Gary before a presentation:

Gary Bailey played over 370 times for Manchester United and also represented England in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. He has performed under intense pressure as a goalkeeper, the most pressurised position in the team!, for one of the biggest clubs in the world. He completed a Bsc in Physics while he was playing in Manchester, and subsequent to his retirement, he studied for an MBA from Henley in Oxford. Today Gary will be presenting on Sales performance (OR Leadership OR Teamwork) under pressure, so please give a warm welcome to... Gary Bailey.

Overall CV:

Gary grew up in Johannesburg and Cape Town, studying at Wits University on a scholarship and played for Wits for 2 years. He then joined Manchester United in 1977 and less than a year later became their number one goalkeeper, playing 373 competitive matches, playing in 2 European semi-finals and winning 2 FA cup medals.

 During that time, he completed a BSc in Physics in Manchester. He played for England from 1978 to 1986 and was part of the 1986 world cup squad that made the quarter finals in Mexico. During the 86 world cup, Gary seriously injured his knee and retired from top class football at the comparitively young age of 28. He returned to South Africa to play for Kaizer Chiefs for 2 years during which time the team won 5 trophies.

After a final retirement, Gary turned his attention to the media and became the anchor soccer presenter at Supersport, covering the 1990, 94, 98 and 2002 world cups. He has been one of Southern Africa’s top speakers for the last 12 years. He has also completed an MBA from Henley in Oxford. He was one of the ambassadors for South Africa’s soccer world cup bid, travelling around Asia and Europe with Danny Jordaan, and being present at the final announcement in Zurich.

Gary now focuses on delivering top class presentations on "Sales performance under Pressure" where he uses lessons learnt from playing keeper (the most pressurised position in the team) for one of the biggest clubs in the world, Manchester United, and "Leadership under pressure" based on his former manager, the great Sir Alex Ferguson.
