The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce will be hosting it’s 98th Annual Chamber Breakfast on Friday, February 16th at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota.
Join us as we welcome guest speaker, Eric Spiegel, former President and CEO of Siemens USA.
With millions of high-paying jobs going unfilled in the US today, companies are focusing on cities and states where they not only see the workforce they need today but where they see the infrastructure and collaboration needed to build the workforce they will need in the future.
Mr. Spiegel will speak on what companies, communities, educational institutions and governments can do to “avoid the “Skills Gap” and Create Jobs in the Emerging Digital World”.
