What people are saying about Jason Broadwater:

“Jason is a compelling speaker full of innovative ideas. His notions of collaboration through public/private partnership and bringing together Education and Economic Development and the Internet are cutting edge and worthy of note by those of influence in these sectors.”
John M. Papadopulos, President, Wells Fargo Retirement

“Jason, your topic, information covered, and presentation style and method was right on target for our community’s/region’s nonprofits that are considering using social media and the internet to increase their current and future constituents’ awareness and support of their organizations.”
Lane D. Cook, Vice President of Planned Giving & Development, Foundation For The Carolinas

“Jason captivates an audience. We had many small business owners say that no one has ever explained the Web and, in particularly, how they can specifically use the Web for their businesses as clearly as Jason did. Very entertaining and very informative!”
Susan Brackett, Former Dean of Continuing Education, York Technical College
