Please log in or register to do it.

It’s a recognition of the Filipinos on LinkedIn who, despite having their own challenges during these difficult times because of the COVID-19 crisis, continue to show up on LinkedIn to inspire, to motivate, to tell their stories, and to share their expertise by consistently posting their own content, engaging with other people’s posts and building meaningful relationships.

This year, we had 343 nominees. 217 qualified based on the criteria, and only the top 100 with the highest number of followers made it to the final list.

Here are the criteria:

  • With at least 1,000 followers
  • Actively posting content on LinkedIn in the last 3 months (as of the time of the process)
  • Should have been nominated by at least one Filipino LinkedIn member

The Top 100 Filipinos on LinkedIn have a total of 1,492,650 followers.

The Top 100 initiative is a celebration

A celebration of the Filipino voices on LinkedIn, the world’s largest network of professionals. 

LinkedIn already has nearly 800 million members, and 10 million are from the Philippines. And the number of Filipinos continues to grow every single year. 

So through this initiative, we want to celebrate the voices of fellow Filipinos who are active on the platform and my hope is to encourage more Filipinos to be on LinkedIn and start creating opportunities for themselves and for others. 

The Top 100 Filipinos on the LinkedIn initiative is a community

The Top 100 Filipinos on LinkedIn is a community-driven initiative that aims to elevate the Filipino LinkedIn community through inspiration and learning.  

As a community, we use the platform not only to attract opportunities for our own careers or businesses but also to help others attract opportunities for themselves.

Together, as a community, our goal is to help each other ELEVATE the Filipino LinkedIn community through inspiration and learning.

8: Ben Ampil

Follow Ben

Number of Followers: 30,907

Industry: Management Consulting

What do you do?

I provide Science- and Evidence-based Solutions, using Neuroscience & NLP, for Individuals and Corporations. Almost 2 years into this global pandemic has clearly indicated that much of what the Marketplace had regarded as “Conventional Wisdom” regarding Leadership, Performance, Motivation, and Behavior… are actually inaccurate. 

And Einstein defined “Insanity” as “doing the same things over and over, and expecting a different result”. Advances in technology have enabled us to learn more about the workings of the Human Brain in recent years than we have ever had in the entire history of Mankind. The better we understand how our brains work, the better we can make our Brains work for us. 

Neuroscience, and better yet, its applications, is rather nuanced and maybe unwieldy. That is why I invested strategically-invested my WFH Time during this Covid season to learn and get certified in different aspects of Neuroscience, from globally-acknowledged Providers such as Harvard University Online (USA), the OptiMind Neuroscience Institute (USA), the Academy of Neuroscience and Education (UK), the Neuroscience Academy (Australia), and The Neuroscience School (Canada). And I am also a US-Certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner.

How does LinkedIn help grow your career or business?

LinkedIn is the best B2B platform there is. It empowered me to share my message on a global scale (and Neuroscience resonates globally, especially with the Mental Wellness challenges caused by the Covid crisis). 

And it allowed me to connect and grow communities with like-minded professionals. The language of “Science” is universal in its acceptance and appreciation, so much so that the Covid crisis has actually opened my Coaching & Training Business to multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural clients. 

LinkedIn also provides a huge community for sharing and learning. And it returns the power to the individual whose message is value-adding and relevant. Before LinkedIn, the “traditional way” of marketing would have involved having to go through numerous “Gatekeepers”. Now, the messaging could be done directly. And as potential clients become aware of one’s Service/Product because of deliberate and strategic postings (i.e. “Personal Branding”), Clients now reach out to me for my services.

What do you do? Talent Attraction and Sourcing

How does LinkedIn help grow your career or business?

With Linkedin, we were able to hire almost 85% of technology professionals when my previous company was establishing a new remote office. It was a tough job since all the skills required are highly niche and the competition for talent in the tech space is tough. As the “go-to person” on Linkedin, our consistent direct sourcing approach and well-executed recruitment marketing, and with the aid of Linkedin Insights research, our efforts achieved exceptional results.

Now, LinkedIn opened me an opportunity to become a better version of myself and contribute to making a better working world. I found my job on Linkedin and am now part of the biggest global delivery shared services on audit, tax, strategy, and consulting.

As an individual, Linkedin helped me grow myself further by sharing my thoughts, my milestones, my challenges, and triumphs, and most importantly, and connect with people

who are experiencing the same situation just like mine. Being authentic doesn’t just sit somewhere else. You need to always stay true to yourself but express it in the most empathic way possible. t It was through Linkedin that our regional communications team in Hong Kong discovered my life journey, sent a full production crew in the Philippines and created a video of my life.

How does LinkedIn help grow your career or business?

LinkedIn helped us grow our training & organizational development consultancy business at LJMB (Learning Just Made Better, Inc) in 3 MEANINGFUL WAYS:

  1. This platform enabled us to stay true to our mission which is to provide #GREATWORK and continuously add value to other people. We always connect to people that will benefit from our content and what we are offering in LJMB. We share tips and techniques that we know other people can learn from and apply in their daily personal and professional lives.
  2. It made FREE SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING very possible for us. During the pandemic until now (extended pandemic), we maximize the use of our personal and company profiles on LinkedIn. We post our success stories and challenges that we know other people will connect and relate to. When 3 of us in our company got acknowledged as Top 100 Filipinos to Follow on LinkedIn last year, we have been known on LinkedIn. Some of our clients (new and old) would reach out to us and would say that they saw our LinkedIn posts and got interested in our digital learning services.
  3. It made us up to date and continuously learn even virtually. Not only through our connection’s posts but most especially the use of LinkedIn Learning. We got inspired by how LinkedIn learning have made digital learning so effective and practical. We benchmarked our very own LJMB.ONLINE eLearning Platform to the standards of LinkedIn Learning as we wanted to be at par with it in terms of sharing knowledge and continuously improving our digital learning services. Not only that, but it also helped us on learning new and updated trends in the programs that we are currently offering and the programs that we plan to offer in the future.

How does LinkedIn help grow your career or business?

LinkedIn helps me connect with existing and potential business partners such as manufacturers, retailers, distributors, trade financiers and so on. It also generates more awareness for the world-class Filipino products that we import and distribute. And finally, LinkedIn helps us tell our stories and the challenges that we face and overcome in our journey.

How does LinkedIn help grow your career or business?

LinkedIn has helped me strengthen and expand my network. It’s funny because I used to see networking negatively because of previous experiences I’ve had on it. But now I see how it’s really about building genuine professional connections, and that’s exactly how Linkedin helped me. It helped me meet people who can help me learn and grow, and in the same way, I’ve met clients and even friends whom I’ve also supported in one way or another.
