Keynote speaker RICHARD FLORIDA will speak about The Human Capital Strategy in the Global Innovation Race.
Considered one of the world’s most influential thinkers and urban theorists, Richard Florida will speak about the trends in talent mobility- how to attract the best in class, and what makes the intersection of technology, capital, openness, entrepreneurship and culture imperative for that talent retention. He’ll delve into what is needed to create a quality of place and whether “mega-regions” provide the answer to economic prosperity.
Richard Florida is Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, Global Research Professor at New York University, and author of several global best sellers including the award-winning The Rise of the Creative Class.
