EMEA Recruitment were delighted to welcome Cornell Thomas as a guest on the podcast at the start of 2020.

Cornell is an extremely inspirational character full of life and enthusiasm – it is clear he loves motivating people and helping people to map out their lives through taking action.

It’s little surprise he has been recommended by Tony Robbins. 

We talk about his life from professional basketball to motivator, the influence of his mother on his motivational approach, how he pushes himself and others to achieve more and his life mapping approach with clients.

It’s important you know where you want to go and how you are going to take action to get you there.  Cornell talks about this process and how he has lived these values in his life through his work and family.
