2019 Ambassadors Council Chair

Sarah Guest – Cyberlicious

Our business has been a Member of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce for 5 years.  I am a native Floridian and have lived in The ‘Burg for over 10 years. This city has seen tremendous change and growth in our time living here, and has become more than a home for me and my family, it’s our life. When the chance to lead our Awesome Ambassador Council arouse, I jumped at the chance to help continue to influence and shape our city’s progress.

The benefits of my involvement in the St Pete Chamber have helped catapult our business. We have seen tremendous growth over the past 5 years with more than 63% of our new closed business in 2018 stemming from Chamber relationships. The strong and lasting relationships I have created in this community, both personally and professionally continue to help sweeten up our business! I was named Chamber Ambassador of the quarter in 2016 and 2017, and was co-Chair of the 2018 6th Annual Good Burger Awards. These opportunities greatly increased my visibility and credibility in this community that we love.  All of this might never have been possible without the Ambassador’s Council and the Chamber.

Now, as Chair of the Ambassador’s Council, I want to invite you to reap the benefits as well.  In business today, I have learned that it’s not enough to just show up…you have to become more and more involved every day.  Our Ambassador Council meets the second Wednesday of every month, and we would love for you to become a part of our group and our mission.
