May Luncheon: Retaining Talent & Creating Change
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us to hear Jim Taylor, CEO of the Florida Technology Council, discuss how to keep talent and create effective and sustainable change.
The Council is Florida’s only statewide association focused exclusively on the needs and priorities of Florida's technology sector. Operations for Taylor include working with Florida C-suite tech executives, State legislators, agency heads and CIOs, as well as cyber divisions of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI. Representing Florida’s tech industry, Taylor’s voice provides unbiased guidance to state legislators, agencies and staff working to move Florida forward. On the Florida House and Senate floor, he served as a key spokesperson successfully defending a need for the Agency for State Technology during repeated efforts to dismantle the agency. He provided education on ride-sharing while efforts where underway for changes that would have been detrimental to the emerging industry. He provided education and direction for legislative efforts around autonomous vehicles and 5g Small Cell Technology during attempts to restrict their advancement. James served as the technology industry representative for the Cybersecurity and Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Legislative Work Group in the Florida House of Representatives and is the creator of Florida’s annual Tech Day at the Capitol.
