Finalists of LinkedIn Agency Influencer 2017 program revealed

The top ten competitors in the two categories of this year’s LinkedIn Agency Influencer of the Year competition have been revealed.

This year saw a record number of participants from across the agency scene take part in the competition, which is designed to help people find their voice on the business-focussed social media platform and encourages them to share more of their thought leadership on there.

The competition kicked off in June with workshops featuring Professor Mark Ritson, and has seen thousands of posts using the hashtag #agencyinfluencer2017, with people sharing links to articles, posting their own content and posing questions to their peers on the network.

Below are the top tens for the Overall and inaugural Emerging categories, with the winners revealed at invite-only events in Sydney and Melbourne in early December.

Those winners will get an all-expenses paid trip to New York to visit the LinkedIn offices there.
