EntreCon is a defining moment for the Pensacola business community

Studer Community Institute Founder and Community Volunteer Quint Studer shares his thoughts about EntreCon Pensacola 2017, in his latest Column in the Pensacola News Journal. “EntreCon is over, and it was a wonderful experience,” said Studer. “First, a huge shout-out to everyone who helped make the conference such a big success. The speakers were amazing, the sponsors really stepped up, the community volunteers kept everything on track and the staff from Studer Community Institute did a terrific job of executing on all the details. ” “The venues were the perfect setting for all the energy and creativity that were generated and the connections that were made. And the downtown restaurants really stepped up to keep everyone fed and happy.” “Last year, EntreCon was a great local conference. This year, it was a great conference that just happened to be local. It gets better and better every year, and we are already looking forward to seeing what the 2018 conference brings.” Read more. Read full story
