Welcome to Smartfirm

We build interactive learning experiences for
smart organizations and their people.


We have developed interactive learning products since 2000 to teach professional skills to clients in a wide range of industries and subject areas. Here are just a few examples of our work.

Technology skills for audit professionals

Financial statement auditors need a strong working knowledge of IT control environments, yet many new auditors are not tech-savvy. The proprietary program we built to address this skill gap has been used by thousands of learners around the globe.

Analytical thinking skills

A professional services firm was looking for a fresh way to reinforce the analytical thought processes consultants need when working with clients. We designed and produced a series of animated whiteboard videos describing key problem-solving methodologies.

What We Do

Learning is our Passion

We design learning experiences that provide people with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to perform at their best. Our development process is collaborative and responsive to client needs.

How We Do It

Who We Are

We are a team of designers, educators, artists and programmers. Together we create innovative learning experiences for leading organizations around the globe.

Thinkers and Builders

Everything worth doing starts with a great idea, but a great idea is just the beginning. So we roll up our sleeves and get to work, quickly making vision a reality. And we’ve been doing it since 2000.

Educators and Practitioners

We don’t just live in a virtual world. We’ve also delivered live classes in a variety of formats. This experience allows us to analyze a learning challenge from multiple perspectives and design the best solution.

We also have deep subject expertise in management (our founder is a CPA and honed his skills in the world’s largest consulting firm) and communication (our VP is a Ph.D and has published a textbook on business communication for Oxford University Press).

Partners and Advisors

Our clients tell us we are very collaborative and easy to work with, and they view us as long-term partners in building the skills they need in their organizations. Most of our clients have come back to us for multiple projects.


Do you have a learning challenge for us? Just want to explore possibilities? We'd love to hear from you. Email or call us to start the conversation.
