Alex Galviz gives graduates advice about entering the world of work

Preparing graduates for the world of work

Ms Galviz, who publishes under the hashtag ‘AuthenticAlex’, covers issues including the fear of public speaking and mental health, and also gives general advice to graduates who are trying to navigate the world of work.

Following what she calls a “quarter-life crisis” in the “corporate world”, Ms Galviz now teaches people how to improve their LinkedIn presence and grow their personal brand. She works with students and graduates, upskilling them via workshops, public speaking events and mentoring.


Now in its second year, #LinkedInTopVoices aims to celebrate people who are producing ‘excellent and highly engaging content’. The list reflects publishing activity over a 12-month period, from November 2016 to November 2017.
