Changemaker Launchpad - Team effort works wonders!
February 4, 2024
MAD Courses’ innovative and interactive program, the ChangeMaker LaunchPad (CMLP), stands as a testament to the power of collaboration. We want to celebrate the people who made this program come to life. We had experts in Media, Business, Education who worked with our community partners, a range of individuals whose diverse backgrounds and expertise converge to form a powerhouse of inspiration. As we honour the architects of the ChangeMaker LaunchPad, we delve into the unique stories of these changemakers.
Leading the charge are social entrepreneurs and industry experts. Sophie, our Head of Partnerships, studied international business in France, before she travelled the world to join social enterprises in Latin America and Asia. Aline, our Head of Impact, channels her corporate social responsibility (CSR) background from the banking sector into meaningful impact programming. Andrea, a former marketing professional, embarked on a profound life change, becoming a tour guide and closely collaborating with our community partners and now heads our interactive video storytelling.
The visionary behind MAD, our CEO and founder Tom, was once a journalist, and inspires us all with his incredible storytelling skills. Roslynn and Roxy, our video team, are digital storytelling maestros, adept at weaving narratives that resonate with audiences globally. And finally Vimeo London brings interactivity to our videos, making the experience so much more immersive.
Suji, our co-founder, leverages her extensive experience as an international educator and service coordinator. Compass Education contributes invaluable systems thinking tools, while Global Co Lab facilitates global connections through SDG hubs and the Teens Dream Challenge. Continuous feedback from partner schools, educators, and students shapes the evolution of the program.
We draw inspiration from the Zambales Yangil community, whose stories provide real-life exposure to our students, and an opportunity to practice the tools they learn about before working on their own projects.
MAD Travel, led by our remarkable CEO Raf, frequently visits communities to ensure on-the-ground presence and follow up on community development initiatives.
The importance of collaboration in education cannot be overstated - we are living SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals. In uniting industry, media, education, and community experts, the CMLP creates a shared value that transcends individual contributions. It fosters a sense of unity and purpose, ensuring that stakeholders rally around a singular cause—the empowerment of future changemakers.
The journey towards a better world is not a solitary one; it is a collective endeavor. The Changemaker LaunchPad stands as a testament to the belief that when diverse talents and perspectives come together, they can catalyse transformative change.
