Community Curator | LinkedIn Trainer | Author
I publish articles, recommendations and musings on these topics each week on Substack.
It's a bit of a mishmash, but this is where I also notify folk of the upcoming LocaX Live Community Conversations I run on LinkedIn and Facebook.
Anna is a Community Curator, LinkedIn Educator and Storyteller, and is driven to help individuals and businesses to build better and more authentic connections in a digital world.
She co-founded the #LinkedInLocal movement, an initiative to connect offline in real life that spread to 90+ countries in 22 months, and has since been validated by LinkedIn.
Anna also empowers entrepreneurs and brands looking to create and scale their own communities. She has a unique background in social media and recruitment and is an accomplished LinkedIn Trainer and Speaker.
The community consulting services and programs help people manage online groups more effectively. It can also encompass developing a strategy to take the community offline and scale the experience offline if required. Curating community experiences brings a sense of belonging for people across the globe, and humanises the brand experience. Online to offline is emerging as a whole new industry in itself. Anna serves companies, community managers, and individuals looking to better connect, grow and manage their own communities, create communal bonds internally, as well as seek to retain customers and engage better with the brand or online group.
As a LinkedIn Trainer and Consultant, Anna helps individuals and organisations make effective use of LinkedIn as a marketing, sales and communication platform through workshops. Anna's 1-1 LinkedIn Coaching program enables people to build a supportive network of their own, an inclusive virtual village to support their journey, their business and their ideas. This involves building a strong presence on LinkedIn through profiles and pages, creating authentic and engaging content, and building genuine relationships to network effectively.
'How a Hashtag Changed the World' book brings together a collection of local and global stories from the #LinkedInLocal movement. The book details how the volunteer movement began, how it grew, and the lessons and reflections from the movement. The impact on careers and building a sense of belonging was profound, and demonstrates how a group of thoughtful human beings can unite communities and use social media for good. It shares many human stories of authentic connection, career change, and social impact at a local and global level.

A regularly blog about Community, Connection and Storytelling on Substack.
This is the story of a global movement that began when a single LinkedIn user (me) who was missing face to face connection started a local meetup, and the global movement that followed. #LinkedInLocal began as a single meeting over a coffee for fifteen strangers in 2017, and grew to over 650 cities, in over 90 countries in less than two years. This book details how the volunteer movement began, how it grew, and the lessons and reflections from the movement. The impact on careers and building a sense of belonging was profound, and demonstrates how a group of thoughtful human beings can unite communities and use social media for good. It shares many human stories of authentic connection, career change, and social impact at a local and global level. How a Hashtag Changed the World lifts the curtain on a global movement and reveals stirring stories of a community that had an incalculable impact.
