LinkedIn is the world's largest professional social network, with more than 575 million members in over 200 countries and territories. It is the perfect place to connect and build relationships with people in your professional world, but sometimes we connect with people we have never met in person. #LinkedInLocal is the place to meet your connections in person.
#LinkedInLocalPerth is a gathering of professionals and business owners, with the purpose of connecting without pitches and promotions, beyond the job titles, company names, and business cards. Jo Saunders is the Perth host along with Jo Harper, and our trusty team of supporters.
Our events are suitable for people who want to get to know likeminded local people, without the pressure of delivering or listening to a room full of elevator pitches.

WHAT THEY SAID
“It was great to mix with like minded people with genuine interest in networking, making connections and meeting up later to chat further. Very worthwhile event.”
“Great event for likeminded people who uses LinkedIn to promote their business.”
“I am pleased to be able to say that I have been fortunate enough to attend all 3 of the LinkedIn Local events here in Perth. At each of the events I have met new business contacts whom I an now LinkedIn with. Cherry’s Catering has been the sponsored caterer at the last 2 events, because of this Cherry’s have gained a couple of new clients. With Cherry’s sponsoring the event this allowed us exposure through our logo on the running video, Cherry’s banner displayed on the night and of course with our delicious food being walked around gave guests an idea of our catering options. Networking is now such a vital part of business, these LinkedIn Local sessions are a great way to meet new Perth business contacts.”
Deb Cunniffe, Cherry’s Catering & Liquor
“It was interesting and exciting to meet other Perth entrepreneurs who were keen to not only develop their own business but also have an interest in developing friendships with like-minded individuals. You can tell someone is great at what they do, when they can bring such a diverse group of people and make it really comfortable to strike up a conversation – even without a business card!”
#LinkedInLocal has become a global movement, with events being run in over 400 cities across the globe, spreading a culture of connection. The concept started by Anna McAfee , who held the first event in Coffs Harbour in June 2017.
In a digitally connected world, there is now more than ever a need for human connection. Getting back to basics and taking the connection in-person, allows us to enhance our online relationships.
