About this event

Michigan Leadership (ML) allows you to connect with your LinkedIn network offline in a safe environment, and create meaningful interactions without the fear of being pitched to or sold at. #LinkedInLocal has been the longest running hashtag campaign in LinkedIn's history.  We are the Michigan affiliate of a passionate volunteer team from across the world, united around the belief that with authenticity, respect and collaboration we can unlock the door to a prosperous and sustainable living.

Michigan Leadership hosts #UnNetworking events EVERY 2ND TUESDAY of every month at the SKYLINE CLUB-SOUTHFIELD (Located on the 28th floor of Tower 2000, in the Southfield Town Center / 48075) , from 5:30 p.m. EST - 9:00 p.m. EST.  Our sponsors, Club Corp and Educational Research, regularly provide free hors d'oeuvres and drink specials until 6:30 p.m. EST for each guest with the purpose of helping you grow both personally and professionally.

We encourage you to RSVP and be sure to fill out your NEWFANGLED INTELLIGENCE FORM -thank you (NIFty) BEFOREHAND.  We only share the number of people attending with the host venue and value your confidentiality regarding any information that you provide.  It will not be sold, spammed or shared with others.  Sign-in at the front desk for each event and join us for a great evening.  Please follow up afterwords with feedback, speaker inquiries, recommendations and/or testimonials. 

Primary #UnNetworking includes developing relationships (often for charity work), making new friendships, finding people with common interests or hobbies, and discussing current events, entertainment or the arts. Secondary #UnNetworking includes building relationships with potential employees, employers, vendors, partners, clients, customers and potential referral sources. It may also include discussing the economy, business management, marketing, finance, organizational behavior, applied business technology and more.

All of our prior success is due to people like you, yes you, enjoying the events and bringing new professionals they respect and trust every time they come back.

Organizer Michigan Leadership

Organizer of Under The Radar: Michigan Leadership #UnNetworking (A LinkedIn Local Event)


Michigan Leadership formed as a result of the ineffectiveness of conventional networking programs. We grew tired of "opportunities" filled with salespeople trying to sell to other salespeople and transactional relationships. In addition, we wanted to provide a forum and support network for the alumni of long-established leadership programs in the region (i.e. Leadership Oakland, SBA Emerging Leaders, etc.)

By the same token, we were seeking a safe, consistent, confidential, affordable and centrally-located environment to nurture meaningful connections with other likeminded professionals in Michigan. Our focus is getting the right people, in the right place, using the right process. When those three variables come together, the "networking" takes care of itself. UnNetworking is inviting and comfortable. UnNetworking works on relationship building and not extracting sales. UnNetworking is not for everyone; it is for those who genuinely want to connect with others --ultimately leading to personal and professional growth.

Our Purpose:

Building personal and business relationships through FREE and recurring #UnNetworking events (Leave your business cards at home.)

Our Vision:

Be the most reliable, accessible and effective leadership alumni supplemental in Michigan. Complimentary Appetizers & Drink Specials

Our Mission:

To make each event better than the last by asking for feedback, assistance, personal buy-in and for you to be yourself.

Our Members:

All ML members should be in or aspire to be in a leadership position. Often, members form meaningful relationships with other ML members. Michigan Leadership understands that meaningful networks are developed over months, not minutes. Therefore, we kindly ask that you attend at least 8 of 12 sessions annually.
