COVID-19 has transformed our lives both personally and professionally including the workplace, workforce, and the needed skill sets post pandemic. As businesses open throughout the country, people seem inclined to transition into new career paths rather than returning to available jobs. This has resulted in economic challenges in the region but has also revealed opportunities. Our expert panel consists of highly accomplished executives with decades of experience in developing and implementing innovative approaches to economic development challenges and opportunities in South Florida.
