    From strategy to delivery, we help our clients design a training strategy that supports their corporate objectives, hire the right training talent, standardize processes, design curricula, develop training solutions, and integrate it all with learning technologies. Here's what a few of them had to say.


    • Andrew P
      The Learning Smith is without question the dream team of sales training instructional design. I’ve never seen such high quality, polished content delivered at lightning speed. The Learning Smith goes beyond simply creating teaching materials, they carefully consider how students learn and what materials and methods will most effectively help individuals achieve their academic goals. I highly recommend your Sales Training leader partner with them to quickly boost effectiveness and drive results.

    • Kris H
      I can't recommend The Learning Smith highly enough. I first worked with them at Marvin, where they stepped in to augment our team's skillset and capacity. With their partnership, we wound up re-setting the standard for product launches and creating a set of best practices that we scaled across future launches. Fast forward to present day... we worked with The Learning Smith on a project at Gemini and wound up taking their guidance to implement tools that have helped our Training team become more effective. Whenever I've had the good fortune of working with The Learning Smith, they have consistently over-delivered!

    • Sarah K
      The intangible and unexpected benefits we obtained from our partnership with The LearningSmith were equally as consequential as the project deliverables we hired them to provide. While keenly focused on the specific project outcome, Dustin has this sneaky way of elevating his clients along the way. Dustin became a true expert in our business. He was unafraid to challenge decisions to ensure the tools he created for our LMS were accurate, sustainable and world-class. Dustin is a true gem in the business.

      The Learning Smith supported my team in developing training materials for our Lean Continuous Improvement transformation. They were masterful in interviewing people to understand the content, then developing compelling, visual materials with simulations and testing. That really helped accelerate our adoption. I’d highly recommend them.

      I am very fortunate to have teamed up with The Learning Smith to create e-learning content for Pentair's global enterprise. Dustin is a rare talent who quickly grasped the ideas of lean and strategy in a holistic way and still payed attention to minor details. He combined creativity and a 'can-do' attitude that delivered exceptional e-learning --- he has my highest recommendation.

      We've partnered with The Learning Smith to create multiple education courses and each has been received to rave reviews both internally and with our customers. When the content is very technical, it seems that The Learning Smith is at their best - distilling down the information to communicate the issue at hand, developing animations or icons for visual learning and searching tirelessly to find videos or digital content to complement the information. I always have confidence when kicking off a project with The Learning Smith - you are assured it will go well and the final result will likely exceed expectations.

      We have partnered with the LearningSmith on several mobile app development projects and could not be more pleased with the results. From kick-off to go-live the projects were excellently managed and executed. The LearningSmith not only delivered on-time, they also trained my staff along the way and added several key insights and design points that made the end product even better than we had originally designed. If your organization has run across a design, development, or marketing project that exceeds your bandwith or expertise; I highly recommend the LearningSmith.

    • Jan H
      I absolutely love working with The Learning Smith. Their approach is based on theory, common sense, and customized to meet your needs. While they are helping on one project their process and questioning strategy spills over into other projects elevating so much more than just the 'one' project they are working on. They have the ability to quickly pick up the nuances of your company's products, language and systems. They are efficient and will not waste your time or investment.
