Event description

Description

LinkedIn Local is about moving out from behind the computer or smart phone and actually meeting your connections face-2-face to humanize your previous digital networking experience.

We'll use this time to see the direction to take with additional meetups. What are the founding members interested in?

  1. Events held during the week or on weekends; during the day or at night?
  2. Small meetups at coffee shops, networking events at bars, restaurants, other venues?
  3. Is there interest in learning some ins and outs about LinkedIn, networking techniques, or do we come together just to meet connections and network, etc?

The LinkedIn Local concept was created by Anna McAffee (Australia), Erik Eklund (Belgium), Alexandra Galviz (UK) and Manu Goswami (NYC) and has grown in countries worldwide.

The purpose is to gather people from diverse walks of life so they can genuinely get to know the human side behind their online LinkedIn profiles*. They can thus connect in person with the goal of extending their relationships beyond merely job titles, business cards and company names.

The founders, and all of #LinkedInLocal, support the following values and beliefs in this effort. You should as well:

  • Embrace diversity.
  • Desire to develop genuine relationships.
  • Respect for one another.
  • Be an authentic role model.
  • Work collectively.
  • Withhold judgment.

Use the #LinkedInLocal hashtag to learn more.

* You do not need to have a current LinkedIn (free or premium) membership to attend. But after learning more about the business networking capabilities, your might opt to establish one.
