The Town of North Hempstead has announced a free upcoming workshop designed to assist local small businesses with social media and P.R. training.
The program is being hosted by Christina Daves, a publicity strategist from PR for Anyone, who has been featured by more than 1,000 media outlets. The event will be held on Wednesday, June 2 at 2 p.m. via Zoom, and advance registration is required. Additionally, the program will be recorded for those who are unable to attend live.
“Our local businesses play an essential role in maintaining the vitality of our communities and downtown areas,” said North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “Offering this training program is part of the town’s ongoing effort to help our businesses recover, thrive, and succeed. Having a professional strategist provide the training workshop presents our local businesses with a wonderful opportunity to enhance their marketing strategies and spread the word about all the great shops, restaurants, and services available in North Hempstead.”
Daves will teach participants how to increase visibility for their businesses, how to attract new customers, ways to differentiate their business from competitors, best practices to getting media coverage, and more.

The social media and PR workshop was designed in conjunction with Bosworth’s Chamber of Commerce Roundtable and is part of the town’s “Lift Up Local” campaign.
Since the pandemic began, the town has worked to help businesses across North Hempstead. Initiatives focused on helping to revive downtowns and small businesses include: implementing a small business spotlight, establishing dining in local parks, expanding outdoor dining options, creating a “parklet” sidewalk dining extension program, as well as facilitating street closures to help attract customers.
