Does your Linked In profile do you justice? Alex Galviz AKA ‘Authentic Alex’ was voted Linked In Top Voice 2017 & 2018. Linked In has 25 million users worldwide and that puts Alex in the top 12. One afternoon in February 2017, stressed out, burnt out and depressed, Alex decided to quit her corporate job. She posted a deeply personal note and photo from the 45th floor of the office tower in Canary Wharf where she worked. By the time she arrived for her leaving drinks a few hours later, that video had gone viral and received over 80,000 views and 600 comments. “It really really resonated with people”, she reflects. And so began a new chapter. From humble beginnings, Alex describes herself as a “Gentle Warrior” and “serial giver”. By day, she coaches C-Suite executives on how to optimise Linked In for better business results. By night she becomes “Authentic Alex” and helps young people overcome vulnerabilities and confidence issues. “I do a bit of Robin Hood. One pays for the other,” she smiles. Alex runs ‘Reason For Being’ workshops and a number of other initiatives as vehicles for her purpose. She is passionate about breaking taboos, disarming social conventions and emphasizes the importance for her of personal development. For all of her online success, Alex also works hard offline and speaks on stages around the world delivering her uplifting and honest message of hope and help. “I woke up”, she says.
