Kent’s first ever LinkedIn Local event comes to Maidstone

LinkedIn Local, a global campaign aiming to unite people with their LinkedIn connections, is coming to Kent on Thursday 25th October, 6pm, at The Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone.

The free, non-profit event first took off in Australia and is now here in Kent for the very first time. Its aim is to bring online relationships offline, and 250 people have already registered to attend.

Three speakers will be supporting the theme of ‘going offline’, including Liu Batchelor who recently curated the TEDx talks in Folkestone.

Joining Liu will be David Beaney, founder of Breaking the Silence, who is going to share his views on wellbeing in the workplace.

Finally, Miranda Chapman, Managing Director of creative agency Pillory Barn, will be highlighting the importance of having a little black book.

LinkedIn Local organiser Mark Gaisford, Founder of marketing recruitment agency RedSprout, said, “Unlike traditional business networking events, LinkedIn Local is all about actually getting to know people; not selling, or pitching. 

We’re blown away by the response so far. We’re hoping attendees will leave feeling inspired from our fantastic line-up of speakers and will have a few more names to add to their little black books.” 

LinkedIn Local Kent is a free event sponsored by Kreston Reeves, HoloSigns, Deeson, We All Need To Talk, V21 and Avviso Media.
