About Michaela Alexis
Born in Ottawa, Canada, to a father from Trinidad and a mother who was formally a nun, Alexis had an unconventional childhood. A love of books, writing and a natural talent for public speaking were the threads that wove the fabric of her young life.
Rebelling against her creative nature, Michaela chose legal studies for a while. After trying fruitlessly to squeeze herself into the mold of serious lawyer, she purchased a one-way airplane ticket to California. There, she tended bar and the honed the writing skills that would eventually lead her into marketing. While she became a skilled marketer, Alexis felt as if she and her marketing efforts were missing something – she eventually realized she was always writing in someone else’s voice and hiding from her own. She didn’t know it at the time, but many marketers were feeling the same way about their own marketing efforts.
That’s when Michaela turned to LinkedIn and, in 2016, penned an article about landing her dream job. The article went viral and her LinkedIn presence exploded. She kept writing, updating, sharing videos and sharing more of her personal experiences in the marketing world. Then the calls started coming in – from CNBC, Success.com, Inc., Buzzfeed, and more.
By rediscovering her voice, Michaela Alexis transformed her presence and started creating her own opportunities. In just a few short years, she went from struggling to stand out in an ocean of ever-increasing competition from other marketers to reaching up to a million views every time she posts to LinkedIn.
Michaela firmly believes that she is not a unicorn, and that regular people and small businesses have the power to make waves in their industry simply by being themselves. In the past decade alone, Alexis managed the online presence of more than 100 high-profile brands and built personal brand to more than 130,000 LinkedIn followers. She works as a Social Media Expert for Crowne Plaza’s Meeting Mentor Program. Michaela recently co-authored a book, called Think Video: Smart Video Marketing and #Influencing. Alexis is also one of the most in-demand speakers on topics relating to personal branding and LinkedIn.
