Honest. Innovative. Personal. Enlightening.
That's what people say most often when they hear our founder present a keynote or workshop.
A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
Thank you for considering me as a speaker for your event.
My guess - you're looking for a presenter who will connect, challenge, and offer new solutions to real-world problems.
You want a speaker who draws in listeners, makes them laugh, and inspires them to take action. I want that too!
As a go-go entrepreneur, I tend to bore easily. That's probably why I'm obsessed with keeping things fun and interesting.
I want your audience to walk away happier, motivated, and changed, so I teach easy-to-grasp concepts using humor, experientials, and storytelling - it's a very interactive performance.
If you like the sound of that, let's talk. Contact me here.
The ability to implement listening practices and sales techniques that I learned from James has made a huge difference in my sales. It has greatly impacted how I lead my team, communicate with peers, and show up with my family. It was an invaluable experience. Anyone with the opportunity to participate in a course, consultation, or presentation should take complete advantage of it.

WHAT DOES JAMES TALK ABOUT?
Mr. Hadlock is a former drug-addicted multi-millionaire turned family man and high-impact visionary who speaks nationally on addressing mental health and addiction in the workplace through meaningful connection.
James is the founder of BluNovus and the CARE Initiative. He has 25+ years of leadership and entrepreneurial experience and 11+ years drug and alcohol free.
A diverse influencer, his views on mental health and the addiction crisis are thought provoking. He’s known for his vulnerable style, where his blend of stories, humor, and research entertain and inspire audiences to action.
Prior to his speaking career, he led a two-year turnaround of a bankrupt company, taking it from $2MM to $18MM in sales and earning a spot as a “top 25 fastest growing UT company”.
James and his wife Alicia enjoy a keto lifestyle, are avid Dodger fans, and live with 6 of their 9 children in the mountains neighboring Park City, UT.

These techniques are so very important for those in behavioral healthcare and can absolutely be applied in our daily lives as well.

"Right after your talk, I helped a family with an alcoholic father and did what you said. I just listened...for a couple days.
