Kurt Forster, from the Florida SBDC at Pinellas County Economic Development offers free Small Business Counseling sessions as a benefit to Safety Harbor Chamber members. Kurt’s specialty is marketing, and he found his interest in business consulting and training working at the USF Center for Organizational Communication while completing his master’s in communication.

The entrepreneurial spirit stuck with Forster even while working in large organizations, opening new offices for St. Petersburg College and later the State of Wyoming’s Business Council. Additionally, he led marketing efforts to redevelop downtown St. Petersburg as the Director of Marketing for Bay Plaza Companies. He developed his enthusiastic facilitator style working in a variety of teaching positions from alpine ski instructor and Sea World animal trainer to college instructor.
