On December 4-5, 2014, over 300 leaders from around the State of Florida gathered at the JW Marriott Orlando for the Second Annual Sayfie Review Florida Leaders Summit.
Headlining the event were keynote speakers Fareed Zakaria from CNN, Ray Kurzweil from Google, Senate President Andy Gardiner and House Speaker Steve Crisafulli. This event included roundtable discussions on “big hairy audacious goals” and expert panelists from around the nation discussing timely topics ranging from millennials to bitcoin.
The mission of the Summit is “engaging Florida’s leaders, shaping Florida’s agenda, prospering Florida’s future.”

The Summit is the brainchild of Justin Sayfie, who has become the catalyst for the State of Florida having its own version of the World Economic Forum that is held annually in Davos, Switzerland. In the spirit of Davos, Justin created this invitation-only event, selecting diverse civic-minded leaders from government, business, academia, non-profits and the news media.
The leaders who accepted the invitation to attend this two day think tank are a unique cast of top-notch leaders who welcomed the opportunity to learn from others and share their own ideas.
Justin assembled a group of Thought Leadership Partners to work with him regarding potential topics for discussion, formats, and identify those who would be able to engage and propel the concepts for solutions into reality. These Thought Leadership Partners are Florida Council of 100, Florida Chamber Foundation, Florida Philanthropic Network, The James Madison Institute, AIF Foundation, Foundation for Florida’s Future, Bob Graham Center for Public Service, Leadership Florida, Florida Tax Watch, The LeRoy Collins Institute and the University of Miami.
