As Future of Florida Forum closes, a thought about Florida’s 2013 thought-leadership boom

in Uncategorized by

If the number of public policy summits held in a state is any indication of its energy and drive, Florida is looking good.

Between the Associated Industries of Florida’s Healthcare Affordability Summit, and its Water Forum; the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s Future of Florida Forum, Education Summit, and International Days; the Sayfie Summit with its “Disturb Florida” theme; and a number of other issue-centered conferences, 2013 has seen a boom in what appears to be the organized momentum of “thought leadership”.  

While these conferences attract a number of the same leaders and players, there’s something to be said for constructive repetition. Few things get done by one group saying one idea once.
