ENTRECON 2022: Time to Thrive

As the effects of the pandemic linger, many people are finding themselves not exactly depressed, but certainly not thriving — we’re stuck somewhere “in between.”

If you find yourself feeling apathetic, unmotivated, reactive, dissatisfied, or all-around just “meh,” you’re not alone.

People across the nation are grappling with how they feel about their work and lives. More than ever before, they’re asking questions like:

  • What really matters to me?
  • What are the heavy things that I no longer need to hold onto?
  • Is this really the right organization for me/my career goals?
  • What are the changes I want to make to create a better future for myself and my family?
  • How do I maintain both my professional and personal equilibrium?

The good news is, if you’re ready to pull yourself out of the “in between,” science proves that you don’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing to do it! In fact, wellbeing is critical to peak performance and organizational success.

EntreCon® 2022 features engaging speakers and relevant content to help you create a more relatable, engaging and resilient workplace — one that embraces our whole authentic selves, our differences, our wellbeing, our connection to one another, and our purpose in life.

People thrive when they come together. It’s time to thrive at EntreCon® 2022!

As of right now, EntreCon® 2022 will be brought to you as a live, 2-day event with both virtual and in-person ticket options available. Your health and safety are our main priority. 

     

THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU’LL MAKE IS IN YOURSELF.

5 REASONS WHY ENTRECON ROCKS

EntreCon® is local. If you wanted to attend a conference in another city, there would be travel arrangements, hotel and food reimbursements, and time away from your family. This makes EntreCon® a great option for small businesses looking to invest in their employees without breaking the bank. Not local to Pensacola? Join us virtually or come explore our growing city!

EntreCon® is not industry-specific. We are community-centric instead of industry-specific. This means that we truly have something for everyone. Our keynotes and breakout sessions are relevant to anyone in the business community. Plus, you’ll be networking with other leaders that are your potential clients, not your competitors!

EntreCon® is for leaders of all levels.  As John Maxwell once said, “Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.” People of all titles come to EntreCon® to be inspired, including students, owners, and even front-line workers.

EntreCon® is accessible and affordable. Instead of asking your company to shell out thousands of dollars to fly you to a big city to attend a conference, you’ll be asking for $399 for this two-day event. We also have $99 tickets for students and our new Flex Pass. With a Flex Pass, you can share one badge between multiple team members in your organization (great if you’re a busy team and want to maximize the number of people that attend). In addition, there are so many freebies that come along with attending, including swag, networking events, and a NEW headshot courtesy of Salz Studio. Think about it; a new headshot would cost you around $300 to get anyway (plus, when is the last time you had yours updated?).

EntreCon® is purposeful. Beneficial and practical take-aways are provided, meaning you’ll have tangible tactics to bring back to your office upon your return that you can use to grow and revive your organization for years to come!

You can never stop learning

Chris Harris, the owner of Quality Gates and Openers, Inc., believes that you can never stop learning. 

Chris attends EntreCon® each year with the goal to become the best version of himself – a better business owner, a better person inside and outside the office, and a better leader to his team.

WHY AND HOW WE GOT STARTED. 

THE HISTORY OF ENTRECON

Studer Community Institute is a 501(c)3 nonprofit on a mission is to improve the quality of life for all people in the diverse communities we serve. The Leadership Development branch of the Institute aims to transform organizations by providing programs, workshops, webinars, online content and toolkits; all designed to create great places to work.

In addition to these resources, the Institute hosts EntreCon®, an annual signature business, leadership and entrepreneurship conference that offers leaders from across all industries an opportunity to grow together in vibrant downtown Pensacola.

In 2015, SCI founder Quint Studer had the vision to bring a high-end conference for business owners at an affordable price to the Gulf Coast. It didn’t seem right that a small business owner had to travel to big cities like Atlanta or New York to be inspired by fresh ideas and learn the latest tactics and strategies for success.

While it began as a conference for entrepreneurs, over the years, attendees have transformed EntreCon® into a conference for business owners, leaders, and employees alike. EntreCon® provides attendees with a front-row seat to both local and national speakers, practical knowledge and tools, and first-class networking within our community.

EntreCon® is more than a conference: it creates a chain reaction of positive impact, elevating leadership skillsets and growing organizations rooted in purpose. We invite you to join the movement! 

“I think the word for me is love. Because what I tell people is, if you really love your community, don’t you want to do things to make it the best? If you really love what you do, don’t you want to be the best you can be at it? And when you really think about it, that’s what EntreCon® is all about.”   —Quint Studer, Studer Community Institute Founder

Industry

Role

“I have experienced conventions that host up to 3000 participants that invite elite speakers, but I must travel far, pay for airfare and accommodations. This conference, EntreCon® 2019 by Studer Community Institute, is undeniably a stellar conference right in my own backyard. The caliber of EntreCon® is equal to of those I’ve attended in the past.

If you’ve ever considered going, GO. Not only will you learn leadership skills for professional (and personal) growth, you will develop friendships with likeminded people!”  —Stacy Robello, Home Instead Senior Care, Previous Attendee and Sponsor
