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!
