On March 4, 2019, guests gained valuable insight on what drives workforce today. Talent Attraction is but one way to solve a community’s talent shortage. Talent Cultivation (undertaken by schools, colleges and universities) and Talent Retention (making certain that a larger percentage of new graduates and exiting military remain here) are equally important, and our community is fortunate to have some outstanding partnerships focused on these opportunities. The event was held at The Island, by Hotel RL. The event was moderated by Dr. David Goetsch and panelists included: Eric Walker, EMSI; Michele Burns, CareerSource Okaloosa Walton; and Matt Zimmermann, Beast Code LLC.
The Signature Sponsor for this event was Gulf Power. A special thank you to: Gulf Reflections Photography Studio, The Island, by Hotel RL and the Choctaw High School JROTC.
