A New World

The reason we can’t seem to tell whether we’re in a growth period or a recession is because the measurement devices of the past 50, even 500, years don’t tell the same stories that they used to. With disruptive decentralization, furious innovation, and a creative and technical artisan middle class, the world is in a global paradigm shift as significant as when the Western World came out of the Dark Ages through the Renaissance. The characteristics of our urban (even ruralban) districts of our economy today are more akin to the famed streets of Florence hundreds of years ago, than they are to the compartmentalized largeness of the Industrial Revolution. Our world is changed. Success in a new world takes new ways of seeing and new ways of doing. How do we create a community, a world, that serves all people?

We are each a Florence in the New Renaissance.


Jason is a visionary person with a remarkable ability to put ideas into action. In supporting economic development, highest recommendations!

Stephen Turner Director of Urban and Economic Development, City of Rock Hill

Jason has the incredible ability to take complex, creative ideas and articulate those ideas in a very powerful way.  Our community WILL move forward thanks to Jason Broadwater.

David Bradley President, CEO of Statesville Chamber

Jason… Your share in Salisbury was exceptional on many levels. As an aging boomer – you helped me ‘get it’ in a way that I can be more successful at work which is nice – but more effective with my two children which is priceless.

Bob Rich Delmarva Farm Management Services, Owner / Sperry Van Ness, Land Advisor

This was the best seminar I was privileged to attend in the past two months. The speaker was unreal good and the info he gave us has already had a positive impact on our town. It was a game changer for Federalsburg. Good job. No, great job. Thank you.

Bill Beall Mayor of Federalsburg, Maryland

I had the opportunity to sit in on a speech Jason provided in the South Lake Tahoe region of California. His approach on the millennial generation was both refreshing and nuanced. It was truly a thought provoking perspective and one that I immediately brought back to my colleagues. Jason is a seasoned speaker with a charismatic style that blends messaging around economic development, community building and marketing. Truly inspirational!

Lynn Carpenter VP Marketing, VisitCalifornia

Jason provided our group with a great mix of data, humor, and insights that were informative and entertaining at the same time. He planted seeds and impressions that I know will resonate in our community in the coming months. We’ve received very positive feedback from attendees. He was a hit for sure!

B Gorman President & CEO of Tahoe Chamber

Your presentation was the icing on the cake. You brought a very inspiring and well thought out message. I would love to see your ideas begin to root here in Nevada.

Sheryl Gonzales Project Manager, Western Nevada Development District

Jason is a self-organizing and visionary entrepreneur and a leader in our community.

Debra Heintz Executive Director, Arts Council of York County

Jason has a way of clarifying the changes occurring in our economy and the impact on communities like Trumbull. He offers a vision for moving forward that is understandable and actionable. He was extremely well received!

Rina Bakalar Economic and Community Development Director, Trumbull, CT

Jason excites the mind when he is speaking. He is creative and brings the ever-changing culture to the discussion of long-time problems. He looks through new eyes. Our 60-plus CEO attendees enjoyed his talk greatly…and are still referring to his ideas!

T. Jan Wiseman Executive Director, Greater Salisbury Committee

Jason’s ability to convey the message of how crowdsourcing can be used as a tool to spur redevelopment efforts is uncanny. He has made the connection between public engagement and community redevelopment. I encourage you to hear him share his experiences in Rock Hill, SC.

Wade Luther II Economic Development Director, City of Camden

If a person can accurately look into the future of America’s cities of the Twenty-First Century, that person is Jason Broadwater. He digests mountains of data, forecasts socio-economic trends, and clearly warns about obstacles that might be lurking just beyond the horizon.

Dr. Eddie Lee Mayor City of York, S.C.

Jason’s presentation received great ratings and comments among our attendees for his content, his approach to practical issues, his dynamic presentation style, and his sense of humor. Well done!

Janice Eidson Director, Georgia Municipal Association
