There have been 275 people registered to attend the event which includes individuals from government, business, education, and the workforce industry.
CSTB has reduced the capacity in the main ballroom by more than 25-percent which will allow us to spread out the tables due to concerns about COVID-19 and the Omicron Variant.

“We held the Vision 2020 event in February 2020, just before the pandemic hit,” said CEO John Flanagan. “This will be the first time we’ve had a major event since the pandemic. This will be a great opportunity to get the pulse of the community as it pertains to our workforce in Tampa Bay.” This event was originally planned for October 2021 but was postponed until January 10, 2022, due to concerns about COVID-19.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Chef Jeff Henderson, an award-winning chef, The New York Times best-selling author, entrepreneur, television personality, and highly sought-after speaker on personal and professional development.
Jeff started his culinary career in the unlikeliest of places: prison. While serving nearly ten years, he discovered an untapped passion for cooking, which led to executive chef positions at Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace.
Other confirmed speakers include Hillsborough County Commissioner Gwen Myers who will take part in a Women in Business Panel, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, who will speak on her workforce initiatives in Tampa, and Dr. Chris Laney from Emsi – Burning Glass speaking on workforce trends.
