What is LinkedInLocal Edinburgh?

This is a voluntary and fluid association. We heard the story of how LinkedInLocal has grown globally, found out more about it from its founders, and decided to set up the first #Edinburgh event in January 2018, with the inaugural event taking place on February 21st 2018.

All events are not-for-profit, and we intend to raise money for different local charities at certain events.

We welcome your suggestions to inform future events.

All events are not-for-profit and have no official affiliation with LinkedIn Inc.

No agenda, no labels

Leave the job titles and business cards at home. We believe authentic relationships are created unplanned.

Quality over Quantity

Size really matters, the most interactive and personal meetups have 40 or fewer attendees. 

No Selling - No Audience

Speak with the people, not to the people, and master your sales and marketing pitches in other events.
