South Florida’s most influential people weigh in on current events. Read their thoughts on the biggest stories of the week and see what they think will make headlines next week.
Daniel Cane, President and CEO, Modernizing Medicine
Last week: I continue to be impressed by the upward trajectory of Florida’s economy, and May was a particularly strong month. Modernizing Medicine’s $231 million private equity raise demonstrated that capital follows talent and not the other way around. In addition, the news that Florida had the lowest unemployment rate in almost 10 years and the continued job growth support the fact that Florida is an ideal place to live, work and play. The more we as business leaders promote the collective successes of our neighbors, the higher the national public perception of Florida as a business hub will elevate.
Looking ahead: While I realize that only Modernizing Medicine employees and their families will be talking about it, our upcoming Bring a Child to Work Day is one of our favorite annual events — in a close tie with Bring Your Parents to Work Day. This year’s Star Wars theme will be incorporated into events including yoga, a coding workshop, an art/medical activity and more. The most interesting new event ties into our Community Outreach efforts — our little Jedis will participate in an activity to support our troops. Hopefully their efforts will bring a smile to those defending our incredible country.
