“very bright student, but talks to classmates too much.”
- nearly every teacher baily’s ever had

Baily Hancock is a Collaboration Consultant, Speaker, and Host of the “Stop, Collaborate & Listen” Podcast who helps entrepreneurs gain credibility through collaboration and achieve their business goals with partnerships. A natural-born connector and professional friend-maker, Baily has spent her life expanding and nurturing her network, priding herself on being only a few degrees of separation from just about anyone (including Kevin Bacon.)

Through her 1:1 consulting, group programs, events, and Facebook community, Baily teaches people to collaborate with their community to achieve their goals. A self-described, "Type-A with a dash of woo", she provides entrepreneurs with the practical tools they need to succeed in business and empowers them with the motivation they need to feel inspired doing it.

Baily’s developed and implemented collaboration strategies for companies like IDEO U, The Riveter, and Do the Good Stuff, helping them grow their audience and expand their reach. In her pre-entrepreneurship past life, she was a Global Business Development & Partnership Lead at General Assembly where she managed partnerships for five campuses across the U.S., and an Innovation Partnership Manager at OMD where she established first-to-market partnership activations between new and emerging startups and her client, Warner Bros Entertainment.
