Event Type

Every community wants to become a great place to live and work. The why is no mystery: We want to create a place our children and grandchildren will want to be. We also know the what: We need to attract investments, provide good jobs, and create lively downtowns where citizens will want to work, live, shop, and play. What’s usually missing is the how. In this presentation, Quint Studer addresses all three aspects, but mainly focuses on the last one. How can your community get from where it is now to where it wants to be?

Join us for our May Professional Development Luncheon featuring Quint Studer, founder of Studer Community Institute, as he presents “Building a Vibrant Community.” The event will be held at Brotulas. Please arrive at 11:30 for networking and the luncheon will begin at 11:45. Menu will be a buffet!

Please RSVP by Monday, May 14. Any cancellations made within 48 hours of the event will be billed or not eligible for refunds.
Quint Studer is a businessman, a visionary, an entrepreneur, a mentor to many, and extremely dedicated to the Northwest Florida community. He has given his life to designing the building blocks for people and organizations that guide them to achieving and sustaining high performance.
Quint and his wife, Rishy, moved to Pensacola in 1996 and have not been afraid to invest in its future. He headquartered Studer Group in the area and Quint has now moved into the role of community volunteer and head of the Studer Community Institute, a nonprofit, research-based entity started in 2014 with the goal of improving the quality of life in the community. SCI’s efforts focus on improving education and economic development through two tracks: Research and advocacy in early childhood education, and leadership training and employee development for small and medium-sized businesses.
Quint and Rishy have also dedicated themselves to the growth of downtown Pensacola. They are the owners of Bodacious Olive, Bodacious Brew and SoGourmet on the historic corner of Palafox and Main St. The Studers have two exciting projects under construction – Southtowne, a 252-unit, $52 million apartment opening this fall and retail project and the mixed-use Urban Core Office Building, a $14.3 million structure set to open at the end of the year.
Quint and Rishy are also the co-owners of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos alongside two-time Masters Champion and local hero Bubba Watson. With this partnership, Bubba and the Studers hope to create even more memorable experiences for Wahoos fans, cultivate a great place for Wahoos employees to work and, with Bubba’s leadership, gain a more national and international awareness for the Blue Wahoos and the City of Pensacola.
Quint has also authored seven leadership-based books both inside and outside the healthcare industry. His books have landed on both the Wall Street Journal and Business Week’s bestsellers list. He writes a syndicated weekly employee development column that runs every Sunday in the Pensacola News Journal.
Quint says he has a human responsibility to act and to do so with a sense of urgency and always connect his actions back to purpose.
