Thumbs up for LinkedIn Local

Thumbs Up

This evening, I attended the inaugural meeting of the #LinkedInLocal Andover group at Basepoint on East Portway.

Thanks go to Andrew Middleton for setting up the group and getting the first event off the ground and to Lucy Middleton of Basepoint for sponsoring and hosting the event. Thanks also to  Jane Berntsen of Andover Buffets for providing the refreshments and nibbles.

The ticketing of the event raised £120 for the chosen charity, Andover Foodbank, represented at the event by Jenny LeLean.

The event was a success. Many connections were made with great use of the Find Nearby utility of LinkedIn. The diversity of backgrounds and business experiences was very interesting. I have spent the past two hours completing connections on LinkedIn and other social media to as many of the people whom I met as possible. I think that I have just about covered them all now.

There was great interest in my writing, particularly in my two published novels, Eleven Miles and Knitting Can Walk!

My hope is that ensuing conversations will lead to rewarding employment for me in the near future and to more sales for my books. If this meeting were to lead to a movie deal on one of my books, that would be a bonus and I would be delighted.
