About this Event

#LinkedInLocalNorthshore is back. Now as we have been in Level 2.5 for a little while, its your chance to meet up with locals and also get to see your LinkedIn people behind the profiles and connect face-to-face.

As an extension to this, today is to show you that you are not alone when in business and everyone is going through changes in their business due to Covid19 / Lockdown. By getting to know the people behind the profiles you strengthen these online community relationships through meaningful interactions and also might learn some tips as well.

Today we have four expert guest speakers who have all had their business affected by this and wishing to share their experience of what they been through, what changes they have made and what might still need to be done.

They will share their knowledge on

1. What they have been through

2. What changes they have had to make to change and survive

3. What they are seeing in the market

This will be done informally as a fire side chat and will be 'short, sharp and shit hot'. This allows for quality information sharing and maximizes quality networking time, which is the real point of #LinkedInLocalNorthshore.

The charity for the night that the event is supporting is “I have a Dream Charitable Trust”.

While this is a free event, if for whatever reason you can't make it on the night, please feel free to pass your ticket on to someone or contact the hosts so they can re-release the ticket.

The event is catered and sponsored by local business. So, enjoy beer, wine, wisdom and nibbles and leave with new insights and a new 'real' connection. Please note that as we take Host Responsibility seriously and note there is a limited number of two drinks per person policy. Note that masks will not be given out at the event.
