Are you new to the San Francisco Bay Area? Outside of linking our clients romantically, over the last 10 years, Linx has been built on a vast network of professionals who see a tremendous value in business relationships as well.
Allow us to plan an event for you, perfectly tailored to your exact social and/or business wishes – from an intimate dinner party bringing together 10 academics, to a cocktail party for 25 in the legal field, or even a larger diverse soiree centered around themed wines from all over the world.
Our goal will be to customize a guest list, inviting the types of professionals that you would like to meet for work purposes or new friendships; or even just that right person to tell you where to get your shirts perfectly pressed, the easiest commute route, or a book club you must join.
Akin to the Chinese concept of Guanxi, the benefits of new contacts can provide a ticket to professional success, lifelong friendships, education, and information to wedge you into your new community in the Bay Area.
Informally, Amy Andersen has matched friends together who are now true confidants, introduced new-to-area clients to 15 new close professional contacts, and is always ‘the’ resource for friends and clients alike who need recommendations for everything from the best florist, to old world tapestries, best local sandwiches, etc. Imagine the impact of that, multiplied by 20 more people who are just as, “if not more,” well-connected than our founder.
This rendition of the Guanxi concept as interpreted by artist Yang Liu in comparing what Germans think about Chinese and vice versa is very interesting. Individualism versus collectivism.
