This year SRQ will also be handing out the Local Legacy Award for winners who have crushed their category at least five times in the past decade.

Only locally owned establishments may be nominated for the “Best of SRQ Local” Readers’ Competition. Yes, we know there’s a line that wraps around the building at the Midtown Plaza Starbucks, but their coffee doesn’t count—it has to be local.

Rock the vote and honor the local businesses that make up the Creative West Coast of Florida area. Polls are now open. There is no need to leave a little early for work or scoot out of the office on your lunch break just to cast your ballot with voting open online 24/7.

Studios was full of powerful and inspirational women looking to further their professional network at the third SRQ SkillSHARE Mentorship Summit on Thursday October 20, 2016. Powered by the Women in Business Initiatives, mentors from the Leadership Circle collaborated and exchanged insight and guidance with women throughout the Sarasota and Bradenton communities.

“Our team was thoroughly energized by the most recent SkillSHARE – a night of serendipitous connection,” shares Ashley Grant, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships for SRQ MEDIA.  “Mentors and mentees dove deep into the particulars of individual challenges and opportunities. Spontaneous insights and profound ‘aha’ moments were abundant leading to concrete steps and action plans designed to attendees dreams forward. Many participants commented that they felt ‘there was a reason they were here tonight’ and noted that they left feeling a sense of renewed purpose and enthusiasm.”

The SRQ team paired our skilled mentors with participants looking for direction on everything from navigating the ladder to success and business expansion to maintaining a business and work life balance with four rounds of 12-minute concentrated mini-sessions. Eager participants were armed with specific questions looking for advice on further career advancements. Our skilled mentors were prepared to share their own experiences on the specific topics of challenge submitted by the participants in advance. Mentors and mentees alike shared their delight in learning from each other and their in-depth conversations.

“The WIB SkillSHARE event is always a positive and productive experience, for the mentors and mentees. I am always impressed with the women that participate and the scope of business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit they bring with them,” said Leadership Circle Ambassador and SkillSHARE mentor Sandra Rios of The Resort at Longboat Key Club.

We couldn’t help but notice a spark in the room, which was undoubtedly the spirit of connection, appreciation and witnessing growth in action. “The selection of women in business that attended came from all levels of companies, ownerships and professions, yet they all had the same common goals. It was amazing to share life experiences as professional women in the Sarasota business community to such a variation of career women,” said mentor Laurie Pike of MPH Hotels. ” I had the opportunity to mentor with doctors, lawyers, business owners and marketing managers, all excited to learn from each other’s success stories.  The take away from this evening was life changing.”

“I loved how the mentors and mentees were paired together, creating an immediate rapport before even getting started. I was impressed with the level of preparation and thoughtfulness each mentor brought to the mini-sessions. I walked away with lots of ideas and a real sense of having made some friends,” said participant Laine Nixon.

The feedback from participants and mentors alike were overwhelmingly positive and extremely rewarding to hear as an organization. “To be in a room of entrepreneurs was energizing, inspiring, and downright fun,” said participant Christine Sensenig. “I was grateful to have other experienced professional women share their stories and advice for the selfless purpose of passing along their hard earned wisdom.”

Associate Editor Aviel Kanter Represents SRQ At FPRA Media Breakfast, Oct 13


Last week, SRQ Media’s Associate Editor, Aviel Kanter participated in a media roundtable at the Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association’s (FPRA) annual Media Breakfast. Each year, the FPRA Media Breakfast offers attendees exciting networking opportunities with local and state media representatives as well as an insider’s look at today’s newsroom.

A panel discussion kicked off the morning, with three local broadcast media representatives tackling ways local news outlets are reinventing themselves across multiple platforms, from traditional TV shows to social content, live-streaming and even digital-only channels.

Following the panel, a roundtable-style networking event commenced, allowing each attendee the opportunity to speak with five media representatives, including Kanter. “When working in a tight-knit community such as Sarasota, it’s important for the media to have a close relationship with the public, and especially the PR professionals who are often the connecting force between us and the people in the community,” she says. “It was great to help build those connections and incredibly helpful to put real-life faces to anonymous email addresses!”

IN YOUR MAILBOX: The Arts and Culture Issue is Here!


It’s that time again—Sarasota’s cultural season heads into high gear and (lucky for you) we are here to guide the way. Our October issue highlights all things arts and culture going on through 2017, from sculpture to film, dance to theater and everything in between. Contributor Michael Adno returns to our pages for What Would Chick Do? a deep dive profile of the Ringling’s Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Matthew McLendon, an influencer changing the way modern art is consumed, down to the museum as a medium itself. Staff writer Phil Lederer pours over studio glass as a fine art form in Working Glass Heroes, investigating the major players pushing Sarasota toward becoming a Mecca for the form, along with the not-so-shiny voices on the edge.

Over at the Asolo, Lederer brings the fifth (and final) season of the American Character Project to the forefront in Staging a Nation, where seminal shows like Guys and Dolls and The Great Society explore what it means to be an American. Editorial Associate Elizabeth Steiner gets a jump on the next generation of stars coming from the educational programs at the Sarasota Opera and the Sarasota Ballet in Next on Stage. In the vein of visual arts, we talk to Orensis Films about the burgeoning local indie film scene in Indie Coast and showcase the once forgotten photos of the Sarasota circus heyday Elizabeth Siegfried found tucked away in an attic in Cirque d’histoire.

Here at SRQ, we like to think of food as an art form as well—thus, Editor Aviel Kanter brings you four edible stories ripe for gobbling up. Start with Peruvian Steak and Eggs from Chef Darwin in Latin Flare; move on to the deep-sea fare at Veronica Fish and Oyster with Café Society; then sip, slurp or twirl your way through the traditional ramen bowls found at Goichi’s Sushi Cafe in A Broth Above; finally, get a foodie education from the experts at Pomona Bistro, State Street and Taste of Asia in Professional Grade. And we couldn’t forget about contributor Nicole Carbon’s look at what makes Chef Steve Phelps of Indigenous tick in Backyard Dining.

Feeling full yet? There’s even more to love in the October issue, from a talk with virtual reality junkie Jeff Hazelton (Easy Rider) to a look at inside the studio of Gum Surfboard’s Brett Telinger (Making Waves), and even a cameo by Chicken the dog in this month’s roundup of Goods (Citizen Canine).

While we can’t wait for you to soak in everything we present in the October issue, we’d rather you get out there and experience for yourself the fire within the Creative Coast!

Common Entrepreneurial Myths Debunked at Sept 22, SB2 Symposium on GOOD GROWTH


Yesterday, SRQ magazine hosted a well-received SB2: GOOD GROWTH Economic Indicators breakfast symposium at The Francis in downtown Sarasota. As guests filled their plates with a mouth-watering breakfast spread, series sponsor Lesley Hatfield of CS&L CPA’s welcomed those in attendance. As a locally grown business, giving back and supporting worthwhile initiatives are just as important to CS&L as their mission to provide the finest level of personal service and technical expertise.

Tammie Sweet,
Director of GrowFL gave a compelling presentation on the common myths of entrepreneurial ecosystems and what it takes to strive economically as a community. GrowFL helps local communities build entrepreneurial efforts centered on the Economic Gardening philosophy. This philosophy embraces strategies for second–stage companies in a community, region or state. “These are companies that have between 10-99 employees and 1 million to 50 million in revenue. They are hidden in the fabric of your community. We help them identify where new market potential may be as well as provide peer environments where they can get with other CEO’s of second–stage companies.” said Sweet.

  • Myth:   Ecosystems can be created and controlled by one organization
    Fact:    When targeting areas for entrepreneurship stimulation, clusters offer a fertile environment where survival rates are higher and performance better than elsewhere.
  • Myth  You  know that you have a strong entrepreneurship ecosystem when there are more and more start–ups
    Fact: For a booming economy, bet on high growth firms, not small business.
  • Myth Job creation is the primary objective of fostering and entrepreneurship ecosystem
    Fact: Job creation is a by-product, but it is not the objective.
  • Myth  In order to strengthen your regional entrepreneurship ecosystem, it is necessary to establish co–working spaces, incubators and the like
    Fact: These types of intentionally created support mechanisms are just a piece of the puzzle.
  • Myth  There is one one recipe for success
    Fact: There is no right way to do this. Try, fail and try again.

Tammie left us with impressive statistics on our region’s economy and job market stating that the Sarasota-Bradenton area was ranked 60th out of 381 cities across the United States for jobs gained in 2015 and 5th in Florida.

Between sips of coffee and bites of bacon, guests were able to hear from movers and shakers in the Sarasota-Bradenton economic community. Panelists hailed from a variety of organizations: Jeff Maultsby from the Sarasota County Government, Joan McGill from the Economic Development Corporation of Sarasota County, Steve Queior from the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Peter Straw from the Sarasota Manatee Manufacturers Association. Panelists were passionate about the current state of our economy, the value of education and the importance of a bi-county relationship.

Steve Queior, 
President and CEO of the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce kicked off the conversation by explaining how significantly our economy has grown since The Great Recession. “We lost 38,000 jobs in The Great Recession and we have since gained them almost all the way back. One of our challenges is we have to create more higher paying jobs for the standard of living for our neighbors and residents.” Steve was also recognized for this 12 years at the helm of the Sarasota Chamber, a position he will be wrapping up this coming month.

“To achieve innovation, you have to disrupt your business. The Great Recession, disrupted every business in our community and we were fortunate enough to have leadership strong enough that said ‘hey if we get together we can find solutions to this’,” Peter Straw,  Executive Director of the Sarasota Manatee Manufacturers Association pointed out.

When asked about the recent decision to decision made by the county in regards to turning down incentives panelists were quick to share their thoughts.

“Florida is a much more business-friendly state than it was 8 years ago. The question is what kind of incentives do you offer and what kind of payback do you get for the incentives,” said Peter Straw.

Jeff Maultsby, Director of Economic and Business Development for Sarasota County argued, “When it comes to attracting businesses to our community, incentives are probably 4th or 5th on the list of things that are important to the company that is considering our community. First and foremost is talent. Where will I get my people? That is the number one question we get all day every day. It’s challenging for us to sometimes make that case to companies.”

Education and retention of young talent were on the forefront of conversation throughout the morning discussion. “Workforce is always an issue that companies struggle with at all levels whether it’s large or small. We are working very hard with our education institutions to create training programs that are specific,” Joan McGill, Vice President of Business Development for the Economic Development Corporation of Sarasota County added.

“Education and training equals economic development, it equals career pathways for our young people and neighbors of all ages and we’re doing some good things in this area in education and training, ” said Steve Queior. 

 Jeff Maultsby closed the conversation by stating,”Winning for us is doing the greatest amount of good for the most amount of people in Sarasota county. The core principle of economic development is to raise the wealth of our community so if we can have that impact I think that’s a win for us.”


Thank you to our SB2 series sponsors, The Resort at Longboat Key Club, CS&L CPAs and The Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport for their continuous encouragement and support. Your example inspires us.
