MAY: Monthly Midlothian Business Breakfast


Every month, Midlothian Economic Development and the Chamber of Commerce invite business professionals and industry leaders to meet, greet, and eat at the Midlothian Conference Center.

The purpose of our monthly Midlothian Business Breakfast is to provide methods, tools, and techniques that attendees may use immediately in their organizations.

Rotating speakers will lead workshops on various business- and success-driven topics meant to motivate, inspire, and educate attendees. Connecting industries, these breakfast forums attract everyone from city officials and education administrators to accountants and entrepreneurs.

The community is welcomed to learn, connect, and share on the first Wednesday of each month, starting at 7 a.m.


Bring your appetite and business cards; each morning meeting serves a Texan breakfast with ample coffee, as well as an ideal opportunity for networking across Midlothian’s intrepid industries. This month, we’re excited to announce the honorable Billy W. Seals as our April speaker.

Midlothian Business Initiative

The monthly Midlothian Business Breakfast was dreamed up by dedicated leaders in the community who saw a need to bring together the ambition and thought leadership of Midlothian professionals. Presentations cover everything from business advice to entrepreneurial inspiration and professional development. The contagious passion among Midlothian businesses is clear as new faces, industries, and cities join the conversation.

The Midlothian Business Initiative has a simple purpose — to support and inspire the community to grow personally and professionally through practical workshops and forums presented by high-quality business, executive coaching, and thought leaders.

The initiative is sponsored by Dallas Baptist University, Midlothian Chamber of Commerce, Midlothian Economic Development, Tarleton State University – Midlothian, and Wier and Associates.

We look forward to meeting the people that make Midlothian a progressive-thinking community.
