Paul Smith is a business owner, audio production specialist and entrepreneur. He began his career as an educator and Director of Instrumental Music at Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Texas, for nearly a decade where he recruited, instructed, toured and managed the program.
Then Paul aimed his talents toward business. He became an independent REALTOR to hone marketing and sales skills before expanding his business experience by joining IBM in operational support. During his time with IBM, Paul was recognized as a valuable part of the business operations team. He learned the intricacies of managing in a complex environment by serving as the key contact for service business support between IBM and EDS (Electronic Data Systems), now part of Hewlett Packard (HP).
In the late 1990s, Paul started Keep on Recording, an independent audio recording service that combined his love of audio technology with his expertise in business management, internet marketing and sales.
He joined Sara to create Smith Leadership, a consulting and coaching firm. Paul became Chief Financial Officer as well as part of the consulting and coaching team - a natural fit for his unique talents and experiences.
Paul is a high skilled facilitator and workshop leader. He is developing the Resonance Project, an educational program to improve quality of life through music and sound.
