LinkedIn Influencers are selected by invitation only and comprise a global collective of 500+ of the world’s foremost thinkers, leaders, and innovators. As leaders in their industries and geographies, they discuss newsy and trending topics such as the future of higher education, the workplace culture at Amazon, the plunge in oil prices, and the missteps of policymakers.
Our list of Influencers includes Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Arianna Huffington, and Mary Barra. A team of editors works with Influencers to create content in the form of posts and updates that we believe make our members more informed professionals and spark thoughtful conversations. We invite all members to join the conversation and share their own perspectives via comments, updates, and long-form posts.
Note: The list of Influencers changes throughout the year. We regularly evaluate existing Influencers to include only the most engaged, prolific, and thoughtful contributors and to ensure that their expertise matches our members’ interests. LinkedIn no longer accept Influencer applications.
