Bryant McGill

Human potential thought leader, human rights activist

Bryant McGill is a thought leader, international best-selling author, activist, and social entrepreneur who describes himself as “a simple person who, as a boy, ran around barefoot on a dirt-road in Alabama—dreaming of being a writer.” Flash forward and McGill has been described by Nasdaq as, “one of the top influencers in the fields of business, social media, marketing, and personal empowerment.” His prolific writings, exploring primal questions about human potential, technology, and social psychology, have been published in thousands of books and publications, and his empowering messages reach a billion people a year through social media.

McGill’s mission: “to cause people to consider kinder ways in which we could do business, structure our relationships, and treat the world.” One of his foundational beliefs: “The more you dream for others—the more your own dreams will come true.”

 A United Nations-appointed Global Champion and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, McGill received a congressional commendation applauding his “highly commendable life’s work”​ as an ambassador of goodwill. His thoughts on human rights have been featured by The Clinton Foundation, in humanities programs with the Dalai Lama, at the United Nations’ general assembly hall on Human Rights Day, and at the White House. He has spoken in an official capacity on non-violence and human rights with the executive deputy director of UN women and the UN high representative for disarmament affairs, and was awarded an official humanitarian citation from the State of Connecticut General Assembly.

Listed in Inc. magazine as one of “the greatest leaders, writers, and thinkers of all time,” McGill has appeared alongside many prolific thought leaders, including Tony Robbins, Marianne Williamson, Oprah Winfrey, Desmond Tutu, and Dr. Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.

He lives in Austin, Texas with his life partner, Jenni, and his three amazing daughters.
