Amir Clayton "A C" Powell loves God, family and politics. He connects with people across cultural, generational and socio-economic barriers. In fact, A C became a dynamic organizational development guru by heeding his mother’s advice to always listen more and talk less. Infusing this philosophy into his leadership style guided A C’s success in various senior management roles in nonprofit organizations as well as in his entrepreneurial endeavors. He has provided business management consulting and diversity training to nonprofit organizations and small business owners for more than a decade. A C speaks with passion, depth and a bit of humor about issues concerning African American males, small business development and the pivotal position of the Hip Hop Generation in the American socio-political landscape.
