"Most professionals specialize in only part of the complex community revitalization process. Incomplete efforts usually create messy, expensive, demoralizing failures. Few specialists understand how to bring a place back to life with a holistic approach. If anyone understands the complete revitalization process, it's Storm Cunningham. He's spent over a decade rigorously studying successes and failures worldwide. He can look at a community, regional, or organizational regeneration or redevelopment process, and quickly spot what's wrong...what's missing."
"Storm is the world’s Economic Medic: the planner, trainer, and guru for resilient, revitalized urban and regional futures. And who knows more about creating effective strategies and local “A-Teams” than a former Green Beret?"
