Presented by: Greg Cooper
Welcome to the first Bristol LinkedIn Local which is being launched on the first day of Social Media Week Bristol. LinkedIn Local is an idea that started in Australia and has caught peoples’ imaginations. The idea is very simply to put the social back into social media, to meet the person behind the LinkedIn profile. It’s also a great way to meet with existing and new connections in an informal business context. There will be a loose structure to the morning but mostly it’s about you connecting with other LinkedIn members and building relationships. Bring your business card but leave your pitch at home.
A breakfast of bacon sandwiches and pastries will be available. Please advise us in advance of any dietary requirements.
Please be aware that parking around The Lido is very limited.
