About This Episode
Carl Smith shares his biggest lessons from a lifetime of working at agencies, building and selling an agency of his own, and now bringing together agencies at events all over the country through the Bureau of Digital.
About Carl & The Bureau
A theater major who decided to act like he understood business, Carl spent 14 years in advertising before launching his digital agency, nGen Works, in 2003.
nGen ran for 12 years, constantly experimenting with different models of management and team structure, including the Jellyfish Model which was flat before flat was cool.
Towards the end of nGen’s run, Carl attended the very first Bureau event and fell madly in love with the concept of building community in the web industry. So much so that a few years later he closed nGen to take over the Bureau in 2016. Now Carl spends every day connecting digital professionals to give them the support they need.
