Our annual in-person conference for business leaders.

LeaderFest conference

What is LeaderFest?

LeaderFest is a conference – with a difference. As with everything MD2MD you will find the emphasis is on pragmatic action.

Rather than sitting listening to speeches and talks from ‘experts’ you will discover LeaderFest encourages interaction. We adapt our core approach of leaders learning with and from leaders to a larger scale by interviewing experienced and interesting business leaders on stage. Then, more importantly, we encourage business leaders like you to engage directly with them through questions and answers from the audience and through private conversations with them and with fellow business leaders between interviews.

Be inspired at LeaderFest

The LeaderFest conference is already known for its positive, thought provoking and ultimately inspiring ambience, giving attendees time and space to learn, connect and plan.
