Event description


Better Jobs  •  Better Lives  •  Better Communities November 14-15

Join the Movement

What started as a two-day conference for entrepreneurs has quickly shifted (by demand) to one for business owners, leaders and employees alike.

On November 14 and 15, Downtown Pensacola will be filled with a growing tribe of energized, forward-thinking leaders, proudly sporting bright red EntreCon lanyards. They are ready to find their purpose, build their skill set, lead stronger teams, and foster better workplaces.

Attendees will be inspired by fresh ideas, learn the latest tactics and strategies to bring those big ideas to life, and make meaningful connections to help support professional growth and the success of their organizations.

EntreCon 2018 will give you the tools to inspire, outperform and outlast the competition.

Having It All: How Linking Purpose and Profit Drives Your Business to the Next Level

To be successful in today's competitive business world, companies must be more than just profit-driven, having the right product at the right price. They must also be purpose-driven, people-focused, and community-minded. This is no “feel good” trend. It’s a strategy tied solidly to sustainable outcomes.

At EntreCon 2018, you'll unite with hundreds of local thought leaders and professionals to learn how linking purpose and profit will drive your business to the next level!


EntreCon truly has it all: A mix of world-changing keynote speakers and dynamic local talent. Visit the EntreCon website to view the entire speaker lineup.

Breakout Tracks

EntreCon's breakout tracks reflect Studer Community Institute's core belief that thriving businesses are catalysts for positive change.

If we can build better businesses with better jobs, we create better lives and better communities. With a better community, we can attract and retain talent to help our business thrive, so we help create better lives. The virtuous loop reinforces itself, and the possibilities are endless.

  • Better Jobs Track
    Employee learning and development is critical to business success - and only the best employees want to work for companies invested in their growth. This track will provide you with tools to keep employees challenged, motivated, engaged and ready to do their best!

  • Better Lives Track
    Trying to balance our busy lives proves impossible for most of us. The reality is that our professional lives often bleed into our personal lives - and vice versa. This track will focus on how we can rethink the way we work to reduce stress, improve our sense of well-being, and accomplish both our work and personal goals.

  • Better Communities Track
    Vibrant communities don't just happen - they're built. What does it take to turn ideas into reality and strengthen our city? This track will define the physical, social and economic ways to make a community more vibrant, livable and resilient for all ages and generations to come.
