Not heard about this networking movement yet … then now is the time to tune in!
If you’re based in or near Warrington, come along to the next #LinkedInLocal Warrington event on Tuesday 25 June 2019.
Following the successful and popular events of 2018, the organising team is delighted to confirm the next event, which will be hosted by Opus and Culture Warrington at the Parr Hall, Warrington.
And the theme this time is presenting skills and how you present effectively during face-to-face networking and incorporate this into your LinkedIn activity.
The event will again be free as LinkedInLocal is non-commercial. It will be ticketed on a first-come, first-served basis with a wait list system beyond that. Instead of an admission charge, you are kindly requested to consider making a suggested voluntary donation of £5-10 (cash or card at the arrival desk) to Creating Adventures, the Warrington charity supported by the organisers.
Agenda (subject to adjustment):
18.00: Arrival, Registration, Open Networking
18.30: Welcome and Introductions
18.40: Spotlight speaker: Pecha Kucha presentation by Kate Jenkinson
18.50: Keynote speaker: Present yourself more effectively in networking, Catherine Sandland
19.30: Open networking

What is #LinkedInLocal?
#LinkedInLocal is a global networking movement.
#LinkedInLocal events are non-commercial and they aim to provide a mechanism for LinkedIn connections in a given location to meet up in person.
The #LinkedInLocal Warrington host team comprises Kirsty James and Kate Jenkinson.
#LinkedInLocal events have run across the globe since 2017; the purpose is to get to know your connections on a personal level, and genuinely connect with the humans behind the LinkedIn profiles.
What can you expect?
You can expect contacts, plenty of inspiration, visits from Linkedin hosts from other towns and cities, maybe a LinkedIn or networking-themed activity plus short inspirational talks but mainly lots of open networking time. Two things the event is not however: It’s not a LinkedIn training workshop; and it’s not another networking group or event, traditional form or otherwise, aimed at competing with the existing provision out there.
What do you do now?
* Click the RSVP button to pre-book a place rather than arriving on the door so we know how many to expect and can manage our waitlist;
* Cancel your ticket if your plans change and you can’t come (so we can release your space to someone on the waitlist);
* Spread the word amongst your local contacts. If you’ve got local contacts you’ve connected with on Linkedin but who you’ve never met in person, then now is the perfect time to put that name to a face and re-introduce the human element into your networking. Catch up with both familiar local connections and make plenty more new ones.
