She saw this idea implemented succesfully across the world. Linkedinlocals are professional networking events organised by volunteers.
But what works across the world seldom works in India.
She found volunteers across India who agreed to be hosts. This is tough because everyone wants to push their agenda.
Preeti Chaudhary decided to price events at a fixed price. This does not work in India, the land of bargains, where professionals seldom spend money on learning or networking.
She got interesting speakers, created amazing value for those who attended.
With several events sold out and succesfully completed Linkedinlocals are the most happening thing in India on professional networking. Here you meet like minded strangers who become your friends, and needless to say thats how business happens.
Kudos to Preeti Chaudhary for her vision and execution. She works quietly with unassuming humility, her work speaks volumes of her.
The next big Linkedinlocal is scheduled for Mumbai on March 17, there are limited seats, grab yours before seats run out.
