It’s a M.A.D. (Making a Difference) World

February 5 - 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

You are invited to join us to enjoy an evening of inspiration and networking at the Aspire ‘It’s a M.A.D. (Making a Difference) World’ 2020 event.

Come along for a M.A.D. evening, network and meet like-minded women and men from across industries and sectors.

We are facing an increasingly complex and volatile world in 2020 both personally, professionally and in our communities and wider world. At this evening event, we will explore the latest thinking about the empowerment of women as leaders for organisational and social change, why there is still a critical need to close the global gender gap, the role of business and why businesses that focus on a triple bottom line of profits, people and planet will be the sole survivors and innovators of the future.

This event will be led by Dr Sam Collins, Founder and CEO of Aspire, named ‘One of the Top 200 Women to Impact Business and Industry’ by Her Majesty the Queen and ‘A Woman Shaping the World’ by CNN. Award-winning leadership expert, social entrepreneur, keynote speaker and internationally bestselling author, Dr Collins is a leading global voice on leadership and change for workplaces, organisational culture and community impact.
