In March 2019, I joined the JobsOhio team and determined my first priority was to meet with our local economic development partners across the great state of Ohio. My goal was to understand your experiences with us, learn where we exceeded your expectations, and hear your ideas on ways to improve our partnership. Economic development has always been a team effort, so I wanted to engage the team, and indeed you engaged with us!

All six JobsOhio regional partners graciously coordinated my visits, and I thank them for their efforts and welcoming spirit. I am pleased to share that more than 600 partners and stakeholders participated in the open dialogues with me. My goal was to listen to you, and I appreciated the candid and helpful feedback.

We heard several recurring themes that I intend to share with you. Our plan is to compare what we heard against our current practices. We will revisit with you and share proposed strategies for your feedback.

Again, thank you for sharing your time and expertise with me. Together, we truly are stronger and more impactful as we strive to help Ohioans go to work and help our businesses thrive and grow.              

See you soon!

This two-day course is designed to provide the Ohio economic development professional with the critical steps of real estate development and a comprehensive understanding of how a deal progresses through to completion. Attendees will analyze the anatomy of a real estate deal and learn how each component stage impacts the next, and how real estate development is practiced in Ohio. This understanding will help the ED professional recognize the challenges (and often barriers) to advancing a new development in their community and to more thoughtfully understand approaches in helping close the deal.
