A huge thanks to the fabulous Nicholas Bailey for agreeing to be an Ambassador for Tappy Twins and our Courageous Kids Awards. He has also kindly agreed to be a judge as well as the Key Note Speaker for CKA 18. I have had the pleasure of hearing him speak at many functions and he is always truly inspirational. Thanks Nick for agreeing to get involved. If you want to know more about Nick’s amazing career then have a read of this:

Born in West Bromwich in 1971, Nicholas always had entertainment ‘in the blood.’ Via the Birmingham theatre school and school productions, Nicholas turned from a career in Law to train at the National Youth Theatre and LAMDA.

He left, without finishing his training and hasn’t looked back. This is his 25th year in the entertainment business as actor, presenter and singer. He has worked extensively on stage and screen; most notably spending three years as Dr Anthony Trueman in BBCs Eastenders.

A chance encounter led Nicholas to study at Birmingham Business School and he graduated with an MBA in International Business in 2012, quickly establishing himself as a Leadership and Presentation Skills consultant and coach.

He continues to act, appearing most recently as Marty Madison in the original West End cast of Dreamgirls at the Savoy Theatre. He will next be seen in ITV thriller “White Dragon” and in new Julia Davis comedy, “The Turning” on Sky One.

He is currently producing a charity gala and play to commemorate the Centenary of the death of pioneering Edwardian footballer and first Black officer in the British Army, Walter Tull. It is an exploration of his struggle with PTSD in WW1 and is in association with Combat Stress and Action for Children.

Nicholas will also be competing in a “Trifecta” of “Spartan” obstacle races to raise funds for Combat Stress, throughout 2018.

In 2017, Nicholas incorporated Prosperform, a peak performance public speaking and Presentation consultancy.

In 2018, Nicholas launched production company, Ono Doken Entertainment and has theatre, TV and film projects in development.
