Sarah Wood makes the LinkedIn Top Voices 2018 list

Sarah Wood has been ranked alongside some of the UK’s biggest influencers in this year’s LinkedIn Top Voices list.

The list is made up of the 10 must-know Influencers driving the business conversation in the UK and beyond, and includes author and speaker Bernard Marr, Hays CEO Alistair Cox and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

To find all of the standout voices, LinkedIn used a combination of data and editorial signals. They screened for engagement among professionals sharing in their area of expertise, looking at what kind of conversations – measured by engagement, including comments and re-shares their original content is creating.

They also tracked relative follower growth: are these Influencers attracting dedicated fans in their particular sector? Finally, they emphasized quality and diversity; in order for the list to reflect the world we work in.
