South Florida’s got talent? Some CEOs say yes
No business nor emerging technology is any good without talent. I strongly believe we don’t have a talent deficit in Miami-Dade County. We have wonderful educational institutions in K-12 and higher ed that we must support and continue partnering with. South Florida has great talent but we must retain it. We need to recruit these talented people, compel them to stay, provide better affordable housing options and pay competitive salaries. This can be done when business, education and government come together. There is a lot of room for improvement on this front. I have been blessed and honored to chair the Miami-Dade College Board of Trustees, serve on the University Of Miami Business School Board of Advisors for real estate programs and been involved with the nation’s first business charter school. We must all play a role in developing and retaining our future workforce talent today.
