As the world’s largest professional network, LinkedIn is home to more than 575 million professionals from 200 countries and territories worldwide. As of July 2018, there are more than 6 million LinkedIn members are from the Philippines.

Inspired by Azleen Abdul Rahim’s post, 43 Most Inspirational LinkedIn Icons in Malaysia You Should Follow Right Now, I asked my LinkedIn network who they followed on LinkedIn for inspiration and learning.

That post, which garnered more than 35,000 views, 189 likes and 140 comments, led us to finding the top 47 Filipino professionals that our fellow Filipino LinkedIn members would like to learn from and engage with.

Why Do They Use LinkedIn?

There are as many reasons as there are LinkedIn members, and so we decided to reach out to those tagged in the conversation and ask them why they use LinkedIn. Although they have their own reasons for using LinkedIn, many of them leverage the platform not only for their own benefits, but also to add value to others and help them become successful.

LinkedIn is an all-in-one powerful platform. It’s a game changer in finding our next talent, customers, investors, and partners. It is a great platform for online learning, industry news & trends, and professional branding. There is nothing like it! Cliff Meng. Adora

Most people on LinkedIn build their career and life around one thing: building value. It is the quintessential platform to reverberate just that. The fact that it is where value builders meet eye to eye is a gold mine.

What do you post or share on LinkedIn? Well, just recently, I tried to write 2 articles about business facets randomness. I don’t like to write articles about teaching and mentoring followers — as I am no guru level yet (will never be, as I believe gurus don’t exist). I write using the perspective of a follower — a facet I believe is not given adequate highlight. Maybe, with what I write, readers (especially leaders) will have a better understanding and clearer perspective about their team. I haven’t had a follow up article since the last one I did, though. But, I will try to write more.

Why do you use LinkedIn? I have two reasons why I used Linkedin regularly. First,I use Linkedin to collaborate with foreign executive producers and international editors if in case they need an experienced freelance journalist like me to cover internationally-relevant stories from the Philippines. Second, I also use this site to promote my management training services on Strategic Leadership, Customer Service, Managing Personal Finance, Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship Development and Work Attitude and Values Enhancement.

What do you post or share on LinkedIn? I post my different management related training activities held in different cities in the Philippines so prospective clients can understand the kind of training process I provide. If I have the time, I try to post it regularly. Also in my post, I also upload my short video clips that I report for international television networks. I also post my published articles to showcase to prospective international editors and executive producers the different kinds of topics I can cover for international media.
