Join us on Wednesday, March 20th at Marble Bar in the Congress Hotel Apartments for our next #LinkedInLocalBmore Event!
#LinkedInLocal is a meetup concept in over 600 cities world wide. It was created with the purpose to unite people from all walks of life, in one facilitated event, to genuinely get to know the humans behind the LinkedIn profiles, and connect beyond the job titles, business cards and company names. These events are curated to bring our tribes together and remind ourselves why it’s important to connect out of the digital world. How our job titles, degrees and backgrounds are just a fraction of who we are and that we have the capacity to be more and to do more when surrounded by the right people. Learn more at www.linkednlocal.com.
