PENSACOLA — Everyone likes starting a party a little early.
That’s what Studer Community Institute did this week, honoring business leaders on Monday with the Cox Business EntreCon Awards in a virtual ceremony.
EntreCon is SCI’s signature business and leadership development conference, held this year on Wednesday and Thursday in downtown Pensacola. Since it began in 2015, EntreCon has been the place for business leaders, entrepreneurs, and leaders to build their skills, their networks and recharge their entrepreneurial batteries.
The awards are a highlight of the conference, honoring people whose work every day improves the community, says SCI President Rachael Gillette.
“Every person there was so thankful for the recognition and enjoyed the honor and encouragement of the award,” Gillette says. “Almost all runners up and winners attended and in many cases their friends, team, spouses and supporters were there, too. We had more than 90 people at one point making lovely comments in the chat congratulating one another.”
