Description

#LinkedInLocal arrives in Geelong.

Meet the Humans

#LinkedInLocal creating value through networking at the local level.

You are invited to the launch of #LinkedInLocal Geelong to be held at the beautiful Royal Geelong Yacht Club situated on Geelong’s stunning waterfront.

The #LinkedInLocal movement is sweeping the Globe and we are pleased to facilitate the first Geelong event.

How often have you attended a networking event where the attendees listen patiently to a speaker, maybe ask a few questions, eat, drink and depart? So often people don’t talk and listen to each other, and if they do it’s all about the pitch for business.

When we don’t authentically connect, there is no value created”
(Dr Richard Clayton, organizer of #LinkedIn Local Hong Kong)

LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional social network and the perfect place to connect and build relationships with people in your professional world. We often connect to people we meet online, who are right in our own neighborhoods, but have never met in person due to the nature of how the network operates. #LinkedInLocal brings humans together, face to face.

THE EVENT:

This will be an informal, pitch-free event that is all about relationship building. The evening will kick off with a brief introduction from the facilitator.

There will be some networking prompts for a bit of fun and to assist those who find networking intimidating and even a few prizes up for grabs!

Entry includes light refreshments and each attendee will receive one ticket for a choice of beer, wine or soft drink. Further drinks can be purchased at the bar at your own cost and the restaurant will also be open.

This is a non profit event. Any profits from the event will be donated to our chosen charity for this event, Geelongs’ Give Where you Live , Santa Cause fundraiser.

Investment $24 (includes GST and Eventbrite fees)


BACKGROUND

#LinkedInLocal is a movement that is sweeping the world and it’s all about meeting your connections in real life. It is the brainchild of Anna McAfee https://www.linkedin.com/in/annamcafee/, who launched the first event in Coffs Harbour in June 2017. She said the event is all about promoting the idea of building online relationships offline and supporting local businesses.

We have a deep need for human connection, but social media has blurred the lines. Getting back to basics and taking the connection offline, allows us to think global while embracing local.


This event will be facilitated by Geelong’s LinkedIn trainer and Social Media educator Fiona Lucas along with the assistance of other local LinkedIn advocates (to be confirmed). No sales, no pitch, just pure networking fun.


The event is open to anyone in Geelong who is currently on LinkedIn at any stage of your career. Come along and meet your Geelong LinkedIn network, get to know your connections and make some new ones, while learning how to extend the value LinkedIn provides.
