What we're about

Welcome to LinkingDFW! LinkingDFW is a networking group for business professionals who are primarily in the northern suburbs of Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. Our purpose is simple – to provide each of our members with a broad, diverse, and pro-active source of information, along with other resources, to improve their lives – both personal & professional. We are unique in that much of our networking takes place on LinkedIn, where our group has over 7,600+ active members, all looking to make new professional connections. We’d love to have you join us!

If you want to get the word out about a new service, product or business, LinkingDFW is an excellent venue to advertise. And if you want to raise awareness for a cause that you are supporting, once again, hundreds of resources exist within our group.
The group was started by Ken Kendall, CFP, CLU, in September of 2010 out of a desire to break the typical LinkedIn group mold of existing primarily online, often highly industry or company specific. His vision was to create a group where people from various backgrounds could come together within their local community and develop lasting business relationships offline, in addition to those connections made online. The results have been phenomenal, and LinkingDFW is currently facilitating meetings within the communities around Flower Mound/Lewisville, Grapevine/Southlake, Irving/Coppell/, and Plano/Frisco.

Because of our geographic proximity, we have the pleasure of hosting live monthly networking and business building events. There are also many additional monthly opportunities for group members to meet for personal networking, promoting business, encouraging referrals, and building friendships.
Our monthly meetings take place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, and, as an open mixer-type event, provide our members with the opportunity to make new connections and build relationships. We meet at a different location each month, generally at a restaurant or local business establishment – no program, no specific agenda, just meeting new people and building relationships. The cost is $10.00 for unlimited appetizers plus a cash bar.
Additionally, we meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 11:30-1:00 p.m. for networking and business builder presentations. The majority of these meetings are located at NovaCopy, 4251 W. John Carpenter Freeway, (SH 114), Irving, TX 75063.
$10.00 if you want lunch, or you may brown-bag it!

If you’re interesting in participating in these events, be sure to check the weekly announcement each Monday on LinkedIn, or the recent group discussions, because the location will occasionally change. Details on upcoming events can always be found in the discussion tab on our group’s LinkedIn page, and on our Facebook page – Facebook.com/LinkingDFW. Also, feel free to visit the group’s supplemental website to see the upcoming events calendar, member blogs, and photo gallery.

Are you on LinkedIn?

We are a professional networking group on LinkedIn. We celebrated our 10th anniversary as a group this fall, and we have grown to over 9,800 members. With that many members, you may guess that we have people from all walks of life. Some people are business-owners, some job seekers and some members work in large and small companies. If you want to belong to a networking group that strives to provide a great opportunity for local professionals to network with other purpose-driven professionals like yourself, then this event is for you!

We generally meet the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month between 5:00-7:30pm for a networking mixer. Our events provide opportunities for you to network and learn from many different backgrounds and markets. If you would like to join, here is our LinkedIn group link:


If you are interested in learning more about our group, please send me a good contact number and I will have a group manager give you a call to show you how you can get the most from our group and get you plugged in.


We are always looking for good speakers or new places to meet. We would also like to have different sponsors for our events. As a sponsor you will have a few minutes during our mixers to advertise business. You can also have an area to display brochures or materials. For $100, this is a great way to get a lot of exposure for you and your business. I will be advertising speakers, sponsors and venues on a wide variety of social media to over 9,800 members through out the year!

Door Prizes

We always have door prizes at each event. It is a fun way for the winners to give us their 30 second elevator speech. If you have a door prize you would like to donate, please let us know. We will give you a few minutes to tell us about you and your company.
