About the speaker
Anthony Bryant is an entrepreneur hailing from the Southside Richmond.
He has a 20+ year background in numerous facets of retail. Working for large, mid level, and local shops, he found his niche in the ability to create visually appealing environments that connect with customers and can drive the bottom line. He opened Little Nomad, a modern lifestyle shop for kids and new moms, in July of 2017. He’s set Little Nomad apart from other children’s retailers by focusing on community partnerships, sustainable ethically made products, and inclusivity.
Anthony started spinning 25 years ago. What started out as a hobby has now become a viable profession. From rocking house parties and opening for acts like The Roots, Hieroglyphics, and Erykah Badu, he now cultivates the sound for top local businesses, weddings, and corporate events. Still finding time to sneak in the occasional house party.
Through his entrepreneurial efforts Anthony strives to be an example for young African Americans. “Each one teach one"—a philosophy he learned from renowned poets Brand Nubian, is the mantra he carries with him daily. Whether it’s a meet and greet at the downtown Y or hosting a visit from a college class, his message is the same: See your ideas fully through. After that, see what happens.
Helping to build strong and healthy communities benefits us all. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and empowerment to our work in the community that we do in our business.
Consider cultural impact as The Martin Agency’s modus operandi. When Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert spontaneously start talking about our clients…when our clients are a Jeopardy! clue and Wheel of Fortune reveal…when SNL parodies our man in a lady wig…we consider it both a good day and all in a day’s work. And maybe a Hump Day, too. A full-service advertising agency with a goal of not just making our clients seen – but making them culturally relevant, Martin has created steady buzz around GEICO, OREO, UPS, Donate Life and Walmart, to name a few. And we’ve been doing it as far back as 1969 when we penned Virginia is for Lovers. People still wonder, What can Brown do for you? Work that leverages culture, wakes people up, fights invisibility, and gets talked about – it’s what we do, and we’ve done it for 53 years.
Worth Higgins & Associates
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
Here’s what you need to know about us. We break traditions. We break molds. We break through. Our passion is to help you make the change you need to succeed. From strategy to execution, we create the kind of change that brings you closer to the people you serve: citizens, consumers, and entire communities.
