An Agile, Global Approach

Our Story

PeopleSmart was founded in 2001 to expand international access

to powerful leadership coaching, development consulting, emotional intelligence courses, and skills training services.

Chris Pether, our founder and managing director, laid the professional foundation of her career in recruitment, talent development, and HR management to then step into global consulting. Her strong commercial drive and her love for business growth led her to found PeopleSmart to make a wider impact with fewer geographic and cultural restrictions.

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do, both in terms of the progressive solutions that we offer and the network of consultants that we hire. We are not limited to physical offices, so we can leverage the very best talent across a wide range of cultures and languages. All of our partners are multilingual, and many speak two or three languages fluently.

As PeopleSmart continues to grow, we will always put people first. Our collaborative team does not have a hierarchy and there are no complicated chains of command, so you can receive the agile, innovative service that you deserve.

We do not only set high expectations; we exceed them.
