Navi Mumbai, the Satellite city of Maharashtra is a planned and fastest developing city close to Mumbai. LinkedIn Local is elated to host its Navi Mumbai chapter in this beautiful city with its inaugural meet on 20th September 2019 at [email protected], Arunachal Bhavan, Vashi. Entrepreneur Excel and TYDIdeas being the founding partners have associated with LinkedIn to initiate these events in Mumbai & Navi Mumbai.
Linkedin Local is an initiative that enhances the human touch and enables the people behind the LinkedIn Profile to meet in real. With growing digitization and virtual connectivity, the emotional connect is lost. #ConnectingHumans is the objective behind Linkedin Local – a meetup concept with a difference. It enables you to connect with your LinkedIn network offline in your local area, and create meaningful interactions without the fear of being pitched to or sold at. These meets are conducted on monthly basis and with a theme. These themes are based on interesting topics and great take away after attending the meet.
LinkedIn Local Navi Mumbai was launched with a theme “Creating Value in Connected World” with amazing panellists Vidya Guha (Admin of Navi Mumbai Moms – a Facebook Community), Dr. Bhavana Bhagat (General Manager – Global Business Services, Apotex India), Dr. Shirish Patil (Vice Chancellor with Dr. D.Y. Patil Deemed University) and Ashok Bhatt (Director of Premier Tech Solutions Pvt. Ltd.). The panel discussion was moderated by Dr. Durgaprasad Agarwal and conversed questions like
- What does creating value in a connected world mean to you?
- Do you think that since we are all so connected, that people expect more from you in terms of service?
- Do you think creating transparency with clients gives them more comfort and value with you?
During this discussion we had insights from completely diverse sectors like a mommy community, a corporate world, professional and an entrepreneur. We would love to share a small story which was one of the best examples of how values are created in connected world. A member of a mommy community had not met or communicated her parents as they resided in a remote village in South India and they were not comfortable with a mobile device. She could not visit them due to her family commitments. When another member of same community who was on vacation took all the effort to visit that remote village and connected the family through a video call the lady was overwhelmed by the act. When this story was narrated by Vidya Guha we had goose bumps and were speechless. What a fantastic instance?
This was followed by Q & A session. Later our gifting partners Mrs. Seema Gupta (Happy Hobby Ideas0 and Mr. Sunil Gupta (Gupta Glass Ideas) felicitated our speakers and then followed the group photographs. We appreciate the support of our photographer Mr. Pravin Maniar to capture the beautiful moments through his lens. Then followed open networking, exchanging cards and taking selfies over cup of coffee and tea. Our venue partner WeGrow – Vashi welcomed our attendees with warmth and love.
Our attendees were contented with the take away of values that was communicated by the discussion with a desire to meet again on this amazing platform. Our team had an amazing experience and are ready with their vitality for next day to launch LinkedIn Local Khar.
