In a fast-changing world, Make A Difference Asia is the conference and exhibition that equips employers with the region-specific insights, strategy and contacts they need to stay ahead - by supporting the wellbeing of their workforce.

Building on the phenomenal success of our annual sister event in London, Make a Difference Digital Summit Asia will take place in Singapore in October.

Asia is heating up as a marketplace. The war for talent is also intensifying. Beyond the basics of pay and benefits, staff mental health and wellbeing is increasingly on the C-suite agenda.

“Come and join us. Prioritising wellness is critical if you want to attract and retain talent”

Cheryl Liew, Partner & Event Director, Make A Difference Asia

In going global, the team is partnering with Cheryl Liew, founder of Lifeworkz. Cheryl and her team work with c-suite to evolve relevant, inclusive and high performing workplaces - shaping the future of work, the future of Asia and furthering the conversations on workplace/mental health/wellness in Asia.

Make A Difference Asia will explore the factors that affect an individual's wellbeing and the impact this has on productivity, engagement and performance.

Through concrete case studies we’ll also highlight how leaders are underpinning sustainable business by creating a culture where there is trust and respect.

Whether you’re just getting started or you’re moving to the next level of implementation, join business leaders from Asia and beyond - for collaboration, inspiration and to find the right solutions for wellbeing based on workplace culture.

Wellness starts from the top of the firm. Topics to be addressed include:

As leaders, how are you taking care of your own physical and emotional wellbeing; delivering high performance without burnout? How are leaders moving from personal realisation to rolling this out across the business?

Culture and Engagement of Talent
What are the tangible and intangible signals that talent is sending you related to their mental health and wellbeing? As an employer, how do you spot and respond to these?

Future of ……
Asia’s future is evolving so fast. The pace of change is linked to stress and resilience. What role does technology play in underpinning workplace wellbeing?

Who should attend:
This topic is particularly relevant for C-Suite but it is also relevant to anyone with an HR, Wellbeing, Work Life / Flexibility, Occupational Health, Health & Safety, Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion or Employee Engagement job title, that has a role impacting talent.

If you are based in Asia or you have talent in Asia, our content is relevant to you.

Make a Difference – Mission

Our global mission is simple. To move the conversation about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace up a gear; accelerating the shift from stigma to solutions.

We started the movement with Mad World in London in 2018. Mad stands for Make A Difference.
Building on this impact, Make a Difference Asia 2020 will feature fresh insights – both from leaders in established industries and from bold disruptors who are setting a new benchmark for inclusive workplace cultures and employee wellbeing.

What makes this event stand out?
It’s our focus on the future of work and business, through the lens of emotional, physical, social and financial wellbeing, plus our international network, exhibition of solution providers and dedication to providing an innovative, engaging event format that set the Make a Difference Digital Summit Asia apart. There are no other events like the Make a Difference Summits.
