Pivot of Perish: A Motivational Talk with Cornell Thomas

October 14, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM JST


Brought to us by one of our very own members, join motivational speaker, Cornell Thomas as he encourages us how to pivot before we perish.

Cornell Thomas is an international speaker, five-time author, and former basketball player and
coach from New Jersey. Cornell is a perfect example of turning a disadvantage into an
advantage. Dealing with adversity his whole life Cornell was able to use the example of work
ethic and determination given to him by his mother to overcome life’s obstacles and chase after
his dream of becoming a professional basketball player. Unfortunately, a week before that
dream became reality Cornell suffered a career-altering injury. With his contract terminated he
had two options, drown in what if, or figure out the next chapter of his life. Cornell dove headfirst
into coaching and became obsessed with leadership, specifically culture and what makes teams
From there Cornell would stumble onto the path he has been on for the last nine years as a
professional speaker. Tired of the negativity so prevalent throughout the world and specifically
on social media Cornell started creating his own positive quotes to help change the narrative.
Eventually seeing the positive impact his quotes were having, his quotes became blogs, and
then books. After his first book was published in 2013 (The Power Of Positivity) Cornell decided
that he wanted to share his story all over the world.
Flash forward to today and Cornell has been all over the world not only sharing his amazing
story, but also training corporations in team building, diversity and inclusion, and dealing with
change. Cornell has spoken to tens of thousands of people worldwide and has been endorsed
by the likes of Tony Robbins, Cornel West, and Les Brown to name a few. Cornell also conducts
a professional speakers course online and has been the owner of Crossroads Basketball LLC
for the past 15 years, which is a basketball company that trains and mentors kids from first
grade to college.

Take a look at some of his work.
