Carl Smith as

The Advisor

Carl is an irreverent ditcher of the nine-to-five and mortal enemy of the overworked lifestyle.

Owner and founder of nGen Works, his role is that of an advisor, to nGen and other companies, on how to create self-sustaining teams that perform at the highest levels. Carl has made a name for himself by creating a new framework for how we get things done, and by enabling us to realign our creative communities. When he’s not conducting business experiments with companies around the world, he’s busy sculpting a new face for the world of work…and play.

Believe It or Not
My frequent speaking gigs take me all over the country. My packing skills are honed to the point that I can survive anywhere with just an iPhone and flip-flops. You could even book me to speak right now and I’d be ready.
