As the country continues to recover from huge losses due to the coronavirus pandemic, the unprecedented crisis has certainly affected every facet of the worldwide economy. Now many business owners must pivot their business models or find new resources to survive and thrive after facing a disruption in operations, impacts to revenue, and concerns for their employees and customers' safety.

That is why Cedar Hill hosts a free workshop series, The Cedar Hill Strong Winter Workshop Series, sponsored by the Cedar Hill Chamber of Commerce and the Cedar Hill Economic Development Corporation. The series will take place from November 19 - December 10, with each week serving up helpful information—and focused on a different, felicitous relevant topic.

Attendees can be part of the interactive, audience-driven webinar right in the comfort of their own homes. The workshop series involves three 45-minute virtual meeting sessions where business owners will work with designated facilitators and panelists, receive hands-on assistance, and hear expert advice on marketing tactics, business planning, digital media planning, and more.

“The day-to-day effort of running a successful business is challenging as it is, without the uncertainty of what we have seen recently,” said Kim Buttram, Director of the Cedar Hill Economic Development Corporation. “There are a lot of businesses who could use this help, and we hope that this workshop series will encourage others to adapt, adjust, and grow successfully through COVID-19 or any future challenge.”

The workshops will also connect participants with resources available from the community-at-large, such as on-going support programming through the Cedar Hill Chamber of Commerce. Over the past six months, the EDC has distributed close to $800,000 in support of Cedar Hill small business owners, fully funding 70 businesses through grant and loan assistance. The opportunity was made available through the Federal CARES Act in coordination with Dallas County and the City of Cedar Hill.

"It's exciting to help with business recovery in 'Cedar Hill Way," shared Cedar Hill Mayor Stephen Mason. "By the intentional effort of connecting with each of these businesses and catering programs to best suit their path to success, it not only helps them survive but thrive into their future growth!"

This free workshop series isn't reserved only for Cedar Hill-based residents or businesses, but all business owners or emerging entrepreneurs in the region. Reservations are required, as slots are limited; for more information or to register, visit
