The purpose of the MAD event is to bring people together in order to connect and learn from another. The event is all about inspiring them for making a difference in their lives and activities.

During the first Make A Difference (MAD) event in 2015, a lot of energy and enthusiasm to lift the Public Leadership movement to the next level was created. The MAD event is the core of all events and activities of the foundation. A great diversity of themes, connections and networks come together. Therefore, MAD 2020 will stand for connecting and inspiring people. (Young) professionals from various sectors and students will meet and learn from each other. Our intention is to kindle the fire in people so that they wille make a difference in their job and network.
Will you join us and start making a difference in 2020?

Who is this for?
#MAD2020 is for everyone who is willing to make a difference. We believe in confluence and cross boundary thinking. Therefore, we welcome everyone at the event. Students can learn from professionals and vice versa. If you want to contribute let us know!

What can you expect?
Nothing is to be expected at #MAD. Every year we surprise our guests with a new program. But there are some general aspects that we will sum up here for you:

  • Meetings with different individuals who are currently making a big difference within their organization or environment.
  • We will offer you some handles in order for you to make a difference in your own environment or organization. How we do that is always a surprise…
  • Networking opportunities with different individuals from different companies and organisations.
  • The MAD award, given to an initiative that really makes a difference

What’s in it for you as an individual and/or as an organisation?
You will get inspired by appealing speakers and you fellow visitors of the event. Through surprising conversations with people, which you usually don’t speak, you get new visions and practices for making a difference in your life and activities.
