What makes an #OctoLeader? Is it the way they leverage their personal brands to build professional communities of shared interest? Is it the way they amplify their brand’s platform through increased reach and engagement? Or, is it the example they set as marketing leaders by sharing helpful content and daring to challenge the status quo?

The answer: all of the above.
