I’d never heard of a LinkedIn Local meeting before, but it sounded like a good idea when Ian Tomlinson mentioned it to me.
I’ve organised an Instagram gathering (Instacake) which was great fun and really rewarding.
The LinkedIn Local at the Grosvenor Hotel, Stratford upon Avon
The LinkedIn Local event was co-organised by Chris Windley, who has organised several successful LinkedIn Local events before.
It was hosted by the Grosvenor Hotel here in Stratford upon Avon, which has a new and enthusiastic director of sales, Rob Coltman. He is keen to use LinkedIn to promote the hotel, as he’s seen a lot of success in that direction with other hotels he works with.
We had drinks and a chance to network at bit in the lovely hotel bar, then moved to the dining room for some intriguing talks by Chris, Ian, Rob and businesswoman and author Julia Suzuki.
I was very impressed with the hotel, and they laid on a lovely light lunch too.
Sadly, I had to leave before the afternoon session had ended, but I’d recommend going to a LinkedIn event if you’re on the platform and want to make more contacts locally.
If you’d like to connect with me on LinkedIn, and quite frankly, why wouldn’t you? You can find me here.
And if you’d like me to take photographs at your event, you can contact me in many ways on my contact page.
