As you may be aware, LinkedIn launched an online professional networking platform 15 years ago.
Around the same time, the technology quotient in interactions increased, while the human-connect
quotient decreased. To bridge this gap, and to utilise the platform's potential to the maximum, one of
the LinkedIn members, just like you & me, proposed an informal meet-up for fellow LinkedIn
members, with a hashtag #LinkedInLocal.
On 2nd June 2017, Anna McAfee held her first LinkedInLocal Meet in Coffs Harbour, Australia, where
18 LinkedIn members in the vicinity, met each other face to face for the first time. In a couple of
months, this simple concept and it's hashtag went viral & reached India.
On 10th March 2018, a Pune citizen, Priya Dhawan, i.e. yours truly, took the lead and held the first
LinkedInLocal Meet in Aundh, Pune, where 50 LinkedIn members met each other face to face for the
first time. 5 editions have been held in Pune since then.
On 24th July 2018, the big news on the night of the launch of LocalX was that #linkedinlocal events
had reached 60 countries, 360 towns and cities and almost 600 city hosts in the span of a year. It was
the first big team event held in London, with 3 co-founders, Anna McAfee, Alexandra Galviz, Ryan
Troll joining other Linkedin Members in person, Manu Goswami on a live link from Canada,
and staggering thousands tuned into a live stream. A new brand LocalX was born : this social impact
organisation was set up to steer #linkedinlocal events happening worldwide.
