A more aggressive more pro-active approach is needed to bring new business and jobs to our area.
An expert delivered that message to the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee and Leon County.
Carol Johnson of a company called "Continuous Dialog" says Tallahassee is primed to bring new businesses to town in fields like internet technology, aviation and engineering.
"You've got to be able to give the prospect the speed they need," Johnson said. "That means a ready product as far as building sites, infrastructure, a ready work force," she said. "You all have that with the wonderful institutions that you have here," said Johnson.
Johnson spoke at the Economic Development Council's Winter Forum held on the FSU campus.
In addition to business and elected leaders from Leon County, several leaders from surrounding counties also attended the event.
