We have one goal in mind- The Audience. Within this enabling environment, our audience inevitably reshape their boundaries of ability and reality.
This will spark audacious ideas for our society, ideas that challenge our present reality and upend the status quo. The Difference Forum recognizes the hopes, aspirations and dreams of the younger generation as well as their zeal to excel and make a difference. In a statement released by The Difference Forum, chief operating officer, Dominic Eluagu, spoke on its drive to change negative narratives about Nigeria while highlighting the role of the Nigerian youth in demanding for better governance and improvement in the system of leadership, the Keynote Speaker of this edition will be Ambassador Imam Douglas Owen-Ali, an International Ambassador of Peace/Investment and Commercial Envoy, Former Adviser to Former United States of America President, Barack Obama and the founder of Global Oneness Inc, an international consulting firm specialising in Global Commercial, Economic Initiatives and Major Commercial Facilitation for Countries.
“In strengthening leadership and citizen participation, it is important that we provide platforms to aid true transformation and establish democratic values while developing active and empowered citizens.
With the theme ‘Impossible is Nothing’, we intend to highlight the crucial role of citizens in imperatives of better leadership,” Eluagu said. The Difference Forum has a mandate to build empowered citizens across Africa through inclusive enterprise and active citizenship.
