Founder of the Like-Minded Females Network, award-winning entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, and published author Sonya Barlow aims to bring together people interested in career, community, and confidence. Her personal brand is about diversity, community, speaking out when others don’t, and empowering people to advance in their careers.
And this shows when you look at her LinkedIn profile, where Sonya is committed to supporting her community. (In fact, she was recently featured in a recent LinkedIn TV ad.)
TV personality and entrepreneur Steven Bartlett might be known for taking his seat in the Dragon’s Den, but his LinkedIn profile is a perfect example of effective personal branding. In fact, several publications have named him one of the most influential individuals in social media marketing.
He aims to help others in their entrepreneurial journeys and posts inspirational content about entrepreneurship, business, marketing, and social media. Along the way, he shares anecdotes about his own journey and commitment.
Founder of Workhap, career coach, and talent trainer, Sho Dewan’s personal brand helps career seekers on their journey to land their dream job.

B2B marketing agency, Refine Labs, focuses on demand generation. It’s no wonder its CEO, Chris Walker, is active on LinkedIn. His personal brand and profile are aimed at providing valuable marketing content, whether a text post or a video.
