ABOUT CORDAN JAMES
Imagine one of the most raw, honest, and inspiring stories of an unwanted infant born to a drug addicted mother, waiting in the Foster Care System to be adopted. When love, support, and acceptance comes in the form of a white family, to a black boy there are challenges he didn’t suspect. The life deteriorating combination of rejection and the lack of self-identity is enough to dismantle the future of anyone but, Cordan James availed; he is a survivor turned servant and he serves through the power of his voice.
When speaking Cordan James addresses children’s issues, tugging at audiences’ childhoods, inspiring them to look at the beauty of their damage, and encouraging them to believe they are not the consequences of their parents. Cordan reminds anyone willing to listen that they are not the residue of bad choices and wrong paths but, the journey to self-discovery is paved with challenges to overcome. Triumph doesn’t mean never being defeated; it means standing in all that you are, having the strength to stand.
With a Bachelor degree in Business Administration from Southern New Hampshire University in 2018, he has gone onto to pursue his Masters in Organizational Leadership. Cordan’s diverse and impactful background has positioned him firmly as an effective Motivational Speaker. He speaks with love and compassion. His passion for promoting self-love, personal authenticity and individual growth are some of the most powerful topics he brings to the stage. Cordan James’ hope is to touch as many lives as possible, to provide them with the same motivation, inspiration and determination that brought him to this point in his journey.

Whether it be professionally or personally that you are looking for help, Cordan is an excellent coach! I would recommend Cordan to all my family, friends and colleagues! Thank you, Cordan, for everything you have taught me already!Elizabeth G.Mother and Outreach Coordinator at Parents Information Center
Cordan is one of my favorite people, full stop! He's passionate, caring, and works diligently to ensure that communities thrive. He places relationships first and uplifts those for whom he is a coach. As a coach and mentor for dads within the larger Fathering Together community, I've seen Cordan use his own experiences to help set expectations so that other dads aren't feeling shamed for their abilities.Brian A.Co-Founder at Fathering Together (501c3)

I had the pleasure of having CJ as a student in the Principles of Management course that I taught at Southern NH University. I found CJ to learn very quickly and to use what he learned in conjunction with his leadership experience that he gained from his professional and military experience to excel in his course work. I found that Mr. Haveron consistently went above an beyond during his time in my class. This exceptional effort to do well in class all the while balancing his commitments outside of class shows me that he will do well as he moves towards his educational and professional goals. I would recommend that Mr. Haveron be given the opportunity for increasingly complex and challenging leadership roles. I have found him to be of high moral character as well as very high levels of motivation and I am confident that he will succeed in whatever challenges he undertakes.Dana H.Professor at Southern New Hampshire University
I thought your presentation at the NCC (Nashua Community College) lab was polished and effective - you definitely kept the students engagedChristina ForbesCommunications Specialist, Nashua Community College
Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt it”. A quote that speaks to me when I think about this fine gentleman. Leadership is not an easy task, but this man makes it look easy. I do not think I would have set my goals high without the guidance given to me. Self doubt is something we all must surpass, determination and the willingness to accept that nothing is going to be effortless is one of the many keys to success I believe. We will all hit bumps in the road but it is how we deal with them that make it count. Learn from your mistakes and others, but don’t take your eyes off the goals set upon yourself. I thank you for all you do.William BrownMentee
