Welcome to the LinkedIn Local holding in Port Harcourt....


The LinkedIn Local is an offline social networking event of LinkedIn- a social networking platform that brings professionals from across the globe. ; It’s hosted in major cities. In Nigeria, it has been hosted in Lagos and now in Port Harcourt for all professionals.

LinkedIn Local is organized for various professionals and business leaders to integrate and build mutual relationships for both business and career opportunities.

It is designed primarily to promote professional networking among people of different backgrounds and interests to form a community of people with a common goal of maximizing individual career and business opportunities. It is equally designed to help businesses expand their market outreach globally while maximizing opportunities locally.

As you would agree that globalization has distorted the narratives of human interaction and of work life. Today, people need not be in the same continent to work and do business together and one mustn’t live in the same country with his or her employer and (or) employee.

What this means is that in today’s professional world, distant isn’t a barrier to how much an individual can explore.

This is more evidenced in the recent trend of the future of work which is today a combination of individual social reputation and digital skill. This means that an individual's social net worth and social currency are the key values that will dominate the future of work for all professionals.

The LinkedIn community understands this trend and has designed the LinkedIn local to be an event for all professionals in both private and public sectors to come together periodically to share knowledge, ideas and promote communal living among participants.

During LinkedIn Local events, participants are exposed to recent career and business trends and prospects as industry experienced speakers take time to educate participants on growing global issues as it affects career and business opportunities.

This event holds in Port Harcourt, with the theme “Building a global professional network.” It promises to bring together professionals especially within the Niger Delta Area of Nigeria who will go on to build quality professional relationships for career development and for business expansion within and outside the region.

What makes it unique?


It is the first of its kind in Niger Delta. It has been successfully organized in Lagos and it would be a disservice to the Niger Deltas not to organize it here.

It is the biggest professional gathering of business leaders, HR Specialists, Recruiters, and other professionals in Niger Delta.
