This year, LinkedIn Power Profiles include CEOs and leaders from some of Australia’s most recognisable brands alongside successful startups.

Cliff Rosenberg, managing director, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia for LinkedIn said, “Investing in developing one’s professional brand is now vital for business success.
