Dialsmith Gets Schooled (In a Good Way)

Roast Festival logo program front

Here at Dialsmith, our calendars are filled with consulting gigs, project discussions and strategy sessions on how to best evolve our technology and grow our business. So, when it comes to enjoying the social scene here in Portland, it’s safe to say we don’t get out all that much. But last night, we made an exception as we all took a break from our “day job” to enjoy a special night for a worthy cause.


The kids were the center of attention.



Wrapping up the evening with our table guests.

For the fifth year in a row, Dialsmith was a corporate sponsor of The Portland Roast Festival Event benefitting All Hands Raised, the Portland Public School Foundation. The Foundation does great work helping Portland-area kids both inside and outside the classroom and we’re proud to support the continued success of this annual event, the Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Our Perception Analyzer dials played a key role in the evening’s featured event–a no holds barred verbal square off between two teams made up of local politicos and media celebs. After the teams finished dressing each other down, each table casted their vote for the winning team using our dials.

While the media celebs may have won the roast this time around, it was the Portland-area kids that were the big beneficiaries. And we were very happy to play a role in that.
