A Virtual Keynote
Prepared by Jason Broadwater for the Lorain County Chamber of Commerce.
Jason’s keynote speech was not only a pleasure to listen to, but also incredibly informative. His speaking style is a perfect blend of inspiring and laid back which resonated with all age groups attending the conference. The one word I would use to describe the actual meat and bones of his talk would be: high-value. He presents hard data with a uniquely human element that makes big concepts like workforce understandable, relevant, and easy to tackle. I would highly recommend Jason Broadwater to speak at your next event.
Jason was great to work with and truly became immersed in our community while getting to know our people, our places and our businesses. He speaks from the heart and doesn’t just tell you the good things about your community, he tells you some things that you might not see or might not want to hear. But that’s what makes him a great speaker, he points out the areas that need improvement. He also gives you examples on how to improve and get out of your own way to help the economic development of your community. We received positive feedback from our businesses, educational partners, elected officials, philanthropic and non-profit partners that were in attendance. I would highly recommend him again.

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
