Hello, I’m Paul Smith. I combine constantly evolving knowledge of sustainable business, social media, emerging global trends and marketing to create powerful, durable results for your company.
This comes as a result of being one of the first in the leading edge sustainable MBA program at Presidio Graduate School, along with sharpening my knowledge of trends, connections to industries and capability as a digital PR practitioner while blogging for Triple Pundit, Shareable, Ecopreneurist, plus GreenSmith’s own blog and respected GreenSmith Session podcasts.
Couple this with being located in America's hub of sustainability, Portland, and having a substantial Twitter following, you get someone both with their finger on and influencing the pulse of green business.
GreenSmith and social media:
- I've frequently been acknowledged as one of the top green tweeters out there, according to influential blogs such as MNN, Huffington Post and Earth & Industry.
- Twitter influence analyzer of note Klout had this to say about me: "You create content that is spread throughout your network and drives conversations. You generate a high level of engagement from other influencers. You generate a steady from of actions and discussions. You have worked very hard to successfully build a large, highly engaged network."
- As of October 2012, I have more than 7200 followers on Twitter. I carefully choose who I myself follow, resulting in a hand selected assortment of the best resources of sustainability, bicycling, urbanism, technology, and social media being heavily represented.
- This makes for a rich source of current and developing trends, tools, and opportunities, and a network that is eager and interested in what I have to say, often going to me for a wide range of advice, whether it's in my sphere of knowledge or not. I've done the work to create a powerful personal brand, that I am glad to use for the benefit of my clients, all of whom I highly respect.
A strong sustainable business foundation:

It was there that I further deepened my knowledge of and ability to cross pollinate skills/knowledge drawn from my previous experience, as an entrepreneur, a green business developer, an association founder, and a wellness practitioner.
