Most local broadband projects involve a lot of cat herding. But when it comes to tackling statewide projects, that’s similar to riding herd on the whole zoo.

Jessica Dent joins us to share some experiences and offer insights to keeping stakeholders statewide focused and on the same page. She has served as the Executive Director of ConnectingALABAMA since April 2010, and continues to lead the Alabama Broadband Initiative. Those involved with broadband projects at all levels will benefit from today’s show.

Besides exploring some of the nuts and bolts aspect of managing broadband projects, listeners also pick up some economic development pointers. As the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs Liaison, Ms. Dent also is involved with broadband initiatives that impact local and regional economies.
