LinkedInLocal Edinburgh - Have your say...

Your opportunity to shape what LinkedInLocal Edinburgh will become!

LinkedinLocal Edinburgh Abrexit Edition


#LinkedInLocal has grown into a fresh and exciting global phenomenon, with locally organised not-for-profit events under the LinkedInLocal name, springing up all over the globe, in over 100 cities to date.

You can search for events all over the world at or by putting #LinkedinLocal into any social media (including LinkedIn of course).

Now, it’s Edinburgh’s turn! We are delighted to announce that on the evening of Wednesday 21st February 2018, we want you to join us at the inception of LinkedInLocal Edinburgh. Hosted by Silje Graffer and David Petherick, this is your opportunity to be involved from the very beginning of LinkedInLocal Edinburgh, and help define its future.

Speakers PhotosWe'll be hearing from Mike McGrail, a digital marketing consultant with clients ranging from billion dollar startups to international consumer brands, followed by Connie McLauglin, the founder of the One Edinburgh, the city’s first luxury retreat for the mind. Connie is also a Behavioural Coach, and Broadcaster for BT Sport and the BBC, and is shortly relocating from Glasgow to Edinburgh.

Why LinkedInLocal? And what will it be in Edinburgh?

The core ethos of LinkedInLocal is about connecting people, and giving them the ability to meet new LinkedIn members and make personal connections.

And with that in mind we will be opening it up to you - what do you think LinkedInLocal Edinburgh should be about? What kind of events would you like to see?
