Our Mission

smith & beta was founded in 2012 with a lofty objective: design the most impactful workplace education and evolution programs ever imagined. We're committed to changing opinion [elevating the usefulness] about training through innovative, hands-on, connected-to-work programming that matters.

Our team is diverse. We hail from big agencies, small shops, technology companies, and start-ups. What unites us is our shared commitment to employee savvy and organizational readiness.
