I first came to know of Steve’s videography work when I received a grant to produce a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the governance of nonprofit organizations in 2015. I had never created an academic course of this magnitude and Steve was instrumental in not only producing the video lectures for the course but in helping me plan and prepare scripts to professionally film them. Throughout the process, I found Steve to be a very skilled, organized, caring and compassionate man who cared deeply for his craft and the subject matter we were working on.
The work Steve produced was of such high quality and the MOOC so successful, that in 2015, I received another grant to transform that course into a four-course specialization. Steve was one of the first people I turned to be part of the team that to date has educated tens of thousands of people on the leadership and governance of nonprofit organizations in 188 countries around the world.
I highly recommend Steve Smith for any project, especially the complex ones, as he is an artisan who takes the time to think through work and diligently goes about it adding value to the final product and team.
