Columbus, Ohio has been doing very well as a city in recent years. It’s the fastest growing major Midwest city in population and second fastest in job growth. They recently won the US DOT’s Smart City Challenge grant, which has been generating some buzz.
I was in Columbus this week to speak again at the Columbus Metropolitan Club. I talked a bit about Columbus’ performance, where it goes from here, some of the challenges it faces, how to build a better national brand, etc. The video of the event, which I’m told will also air on public television throughout Ohio, is below.
