What we do

2014 05 06 Lynn panelst at UNC 2Broadview Collaborative brings a systems-thinking approach to helping our clients address the complexities of working through the intersections of water, energy, food, buildings, and transportation, all in a context of resource sustainability, community resiliency, and social equity. We believe in a collaborative approach, building partnerships on both the client and service side of the relationship. Examples of our work include:

  • Stakeholder assessment: Do you wonder what they really think? Do you want to avoid confrontations before they happen? Intelligent, open, confidential one-on-one conversations from an independent but knowledgeable party like Broadview Collaborative provides unique insights that can inform strategy while avoiding unnecessary conflict.
  • Facilitation: Broadview Collaborative’s president Lynn Broaddus has a respected track record as a skilled and knowledgeable facilitator for thorny processes, especially those focused on water infrastructure and technology, natural resources, sustainability, and related policies.
  • Advise early-stage companies in the water sector: Launching a new enterprise takes guts. Broadview Collaborative has a special interest in helping start-ups whose goals are compatible with our passion for sustainability. We can help with insights on industry trends, market opportunities, and networking with potential clients or partners.
  • Evaluate opportunities for new programmatic investments: Every foundation and philanthropist wants to maximize the impact of its investments, but sometimes needs help doing the necessary background research. With our water-related technical and policy expertise we bring a unique ability to comb through information and provide to provide board members and senior staff with the assurance and insights they need.
