Aura sponsors major Portsmouth business event #LinkedInLocal


Aura is sponsoring a major business event that aims to bring the Portsmouth business community closer together and promote innovation.

The #LinkedInLocal event is taking place on November 22 at Village Hotel, in Lakeshore Drive, Portsmouth. This is the third time #LinkedInLocal has been held in Portsmouth following two successful previous events that attracted businesses from all sectors from across the city.

#LinkedInLocal is an idea that started in Australia and has become popular around the world – quite simply with the aim of putting the social back into social media by meeting the person behind the LinkedIn profile.

The Portsmouth event, taking place between 6pm and 8.30pm, will feature guest speaker Craig McHugh, a specialist in people development in the success of businesses. The nominated charity for the event will be Education Business Partnership South, which is based at North Harbour and works to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work by connecting education and business.

Tim Walker, Managing Director of Aura Technology, said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the #LinkedInLocal event in Portsmouth.

“The growth of #LinkedInLocal events has been nothing short of phenomenal and I would expect the event in November to be just as popular as the previous two. I believe there’s a very good reason for this. Businesses are ultimately about people and chatting face-to-face is often the best way to make connections and share ideas.

“I firmly believe that one of the keys to successful business is collaboration and the exchange of knowledge – and this is exactly what #LinkedInLocal events facilitate in a relaxed setting. I think this will be a great opportunity for organisations across the Portsmouth area to build effective relationships and that can only be good for business in the South.

“Aura is committed to developing young talent with our internship programme and we are pleased that EBP will benefit from this event.”

Aura will be sponsoring the event alongside Biscoes Solicitors and KSM Telecom.
