We'll show you how we make the most of our visit to small towns with an Embedded Community Experience. When we walk through a downtown, we point out potential and help people see the specific steps they can take to make meaningful change.

In this virtual tour, we'll share what we've seen in lots of small towns from all over. You'll see pictures of spots with potential and places that will inspire you. You'll hear the stories of small steps that you can take right away to shape a better future for your small town. 

Our walk throughs are not about gathering ideas or building consensus. It’s about unleashing people to take action.

We won't help you create a master plan that then goes back on a shelf to be dusted off 5 years later and rewritten.  We want everyone in the community who wants to participate to be valued and welcomed.  

It’s not about the specific photos we'll show or the particular stories we'll tell. It's about learning how to unleash your people to take action.   

You see what was lost. We see what's possible.

What are your webinars like? Will there be slides?   

Our webinars are actually live video broadcasts. You see our faces. We connect with you personally. We give you a downloadable handout instead of boring slides, and we focus on real-world examples, not statistics. Your downloadable handout will have photos, more info and links for all the examples.

Will it be recorded? 

Yes, and the replay will be available for two weeks after the live broadcast. After that, the recording goes away, so be sure to schedule a specific time to watch!

Will it work with my system? 

For the live broadcast only, we use Zoom. You can join from most any PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device. You don't need a Zoom account, and there is no charge from Zoom for listening in. You can even test your setup first.  

For the replay, if you can watch a YouTube video, you can view the recording. That means you can use any device, any screen that can play a YouTube video. PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android should all work. 

How long will it run? How long do I need to schedule for a replay?

We wrap up the presentation within one hour, and we stay a bit extra to answer any last-minute questions. We also take questions by email during the two weeks the replay is available.

You can bring friends:

Once you’re registered, you can schedule more than one viewing during the two week window so you reach as many people as possible.

We allow you to watch the live event, invite friends and hold replays in your town, as long as you’re personally present each time. If others want to watch without you, we ask that they also register. 

Who should you invite?

  • Downtown business owners and managers
  • Downtown associations, Main Streets, Chambers
  • Economic development folks
  • Elected officials, cities, towns, municipalities
  • Those who want to revitalize their downtowns
  • Visionaries like yourself

  • We had a fabulous inaugural “EDC after hours” on Wednesday night this week! We did the replay of the Bringing Big Ideas to Life – it was a perfect launching point for discussion! We had 25 of our members in attendance, and secured three new members as a result!
    Julie Barr, Schoolcraft County, U.P., Michigan
  • I'll make sure our Town Council and our fledgling Economic Development Commission see this webinar! Thank you!
    Jason Miller, Mayor, Town of Concrete
  • I have so many ideas, but didn't really have the motivating vehicle to get the stakeholders together to present them. Your webinar is the perfect vehicle to generate the enthusiasm and wherewithal to needed to start the ball rolling. While viewing the seminar, my enthusiasm to see things happen in Cleveland was regenerated, and it hasn't waned. I can't wait to start that journey. Keeping in mind, there are so many areas to address, I joined and am now a member of the Insiders so I can view all of the webinars.

  • I ran the "Top Ten Trends for Small Towns in 2017" seminar from my Megaphone subscription about three months ago. Two ladies who were there jumped on the Painted Rocks idea and set up a FB page for our town of 900. They invited everyone to target "What Canada Means to You" images to start the ball rolling and aimed for everyone to hide their rocks a day or two before Canada Day, July 1st. It went over great. Today 337 members and going strong. Now moving on with more seminars. Great reception for "Gather Your Crowd," with more ideas bubbling up.

  • Your webinars are just so precious. I wish I could fill an auditorium with our local chamber of commerce leaders and boards to hear you both.
    Jim Blankenship, Tennessee
  • I watched the webinar video last night. It was great. I think you and Deb make good team. Nice banter, good pacing, and lots of useful information. Excellent!
    Cindy Kelly, Kansas
  • This webinar stimulated lots of note-taking and conversation between the business owners gathered at my house. Deb and Becky gave us some new ideas and several excellent examples of known models. I think some of us are thinking of pivoting our summer’s plans after participating in Wednesday’s event. Thanks for a well-thought out presentation!

  • I appreciated the very relaxed feel to the webinar. No monotone drone that gets tuned out off and on throughout a session... I watched it twice as matter of fact.
    James Leonard, Town of Buffalo, Oklahoma
  • What a TERRIFIC marketing Webinar. I had 20 businesses show up to watch and they all left with new ideas and an excitement to get back and start implementing! I’ve already had 5 businesses reach out in less than 2 hours after it ended, that are already putting your ideas into action.
    Mandy Walsh, City of Lampasas, Texas
