The 2010 Future of Florida Forum featured outstanding speakers such as Steve Forbes, Chairman and CEO of Forbes Media and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine and Republican candidate for President in 1996 and 2000.
Keynote speaker Watts Wacker, one of the worlds’ most respected futurists as well as a lecturer, best-selling author, political commentator and social critic, has helped top corporations and organizations navigate the sea of change taking hold in the new millennium.
Participants took an in-depth look at important state and national issues, including:
