Business Analytics Roundtable Invitation

Business Analytics Roundtable Discussion, April 12th, 12:30p to 1:30p (lunch provided)

Dear Chamber Member,

Business Analytics is at the core of organizational success. What is measured can be improved, but this industry is far more reaching than improvement within the organization. Analyzing data provides decision support to build strategies and it provides the accountability needed to prove effectiveness of programs and business practices. Business Analytics fits into the “Lean” methodology of Build, Measure, and Learn to validate or invalidate ideas.

Please join the Greater Tampa Chamber’s Education Connection interactive and informal Business Analytics discussion between business and academic professionals. This is ideal if you teach or are in the business of machine learning, data visualization, business intelligence, big data, and predictive analytics.

Discussions will focus on:

  • trends, issues, news, and directions in business analytics
  • what businesses need in workforce skills and capabilities
  • student opportunities available in Tampa
  • industry job descriptions
  • resources available to businesses from the academic community

Seats are limited to 10 Chamber member business participants and 10 academic participants, so reservations are on a first come basis.

To reserve your seat, please email cgeeabate@tampachamber.com.

 

Roundtable details: Wednesday, April 12th, 12:30pm to 1:30pm (lunch provided)

Location: Greater Tampa Chamber office, 201 N. Franklin Street, Suite 201

Sneak Peek into the Issues facing this Year’s Session

Here is an insight into the issues that will be the hot topics during the upcoming legislative session that begins next week.

This week in Tallahassee:

This week was relatively quiet in Tallahassee as most legislators were home in their districts to meet with constituents and prepare for the 2017 Legislative Session, which begins next Tuesday.

During Session, the Chamber will update members on the issues that are on the 2017 Legislative Agenda.

As things are changing in Tallahassee, Washington D.C. and here in Hillsborough County,  the Tampa Chamber is watching those issues that are important to the community and your business. Here is some of what we are watching:

  • Possible changes to the Affordable Health Care Act
  • Possible changes with the relations between the U.S. and Cuba
  • Appropriations request rule changes in Tallahassee
  • Medical Marijuana and what that means to Tampa Bay
  • Workers’ Comp. Rate
  • Premium Transit Study

Talent Management for Millennials

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

8:00am to 9:30am (light breakfast included)

Location: Tampa Chamber of Commerce Office

Intent of the Program.

The premise begins with Lindsey Pollak’s (subject matter expert on millennials) research and therefore her assertion that millennials require a clear career path plan early on in employment and that without it, millennials leave a company in 12 to 18 months. We want to test this theory with our local businesses and millennials. If it is a plausible theory, what are millennials expecting from our local businesses in helping to plan their careers and what has been their experience when seeking companies that fulfill this expectation? From the employers perspective, has there been this expectation from millennials and how have they met it?

Expert panelists will share their experience and discuss the best practices for talent management for millennials from varying perspectives…academic career planning, business community, and young professionals (millennials).

The ideal audience for this program is anyone working in human resources and also in charge of recruiting, hiring, training, and managing the millennial workforce.
