Helping individuals, businesses, and educational institutions understand the importance of being able to recruit, train and retain diverse groups of people and treat them equitably have been the hallmark of Bryant’s professional career.

When how it’s said is just as important as what is said, you want Bryant K. Smith to say it. A seasoned higher education administrator, competent classroom instructor and championship winning basketball coach, Bryant has witnessed the power of diversity in the boardroom, classroom and on the court of competition. His award winning program, “The Box” was sited as, “The most powerful and thought provoking experiential learning activity ever brought to the school.” Using his uniquely engaging and thought provoking style he both challenges and excites his audience with his critical analysis and passionate delivery. “Insightful”, “Engaging”, “Deep”, and “Real” are all words his audiences use to describe their experiences with him.

Bryant founded Smith-C.A.N., a comprehensive consulting and training firm, in 2000 as a vehicle to better help businesses, teams and schools to invest in their most valuable assets, their people. Bryant has presented to more than 1,000 audiences across the United States and in Spain as the guest of the Spanish Consulate. He has been a Director of Multicultural Affairs and International Student Services at two universities in the United States, and has taught courses in Communication at Clemson University, Diversity and leadership at Lander and Millikin Universities and served as an adjunct instructor of Communication at Tri-County Technical College in Pendleton, SC.

Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, IL and now residing in South Carolina, Bryant incorporates lessons he learned by growing up in one of the most racially segregated cities in the nation and moving to the “New South” into much of his professional work. His personal motto, “Difficult does not equal impossible” serves as a constant reminder that hard work will always overcome hard times.
