(Due to his invite to meet President Obama yesterday, we re-scheduled Gary Evans for today. We'll begin the show with Gary's re-cap of his Q&A with the President on broadband and the economy.)
How do you maximize your broadband public private partnership (PPP)? Gary Evans has been refining and validating the answer to this question for several years, and you'll benefit from his experience and insights, Evans, President and CEO of Hiawatha Broadband Communications, has created two top-10 lists of tips that help you tap the full benefits PPPs offer while minimizing the challenges. One list is from the public sector perspective and the other tackles the question from the private sector perspective. In this broadcast, you'll get a good handle on several important issues including: • finding the best partners; • creating a shared vision; and • developing the best plan for a win-win. Given the increasing interest and variations in PPPs, there's a lot that communities need to know. This interview starts you on the right path to success.
