"You must be the change you want to see - No Excuses"

Life is a blank piece of paper - whatever you write on it you can achieve.
My goal is to support people facing challenges to identify their opportunities and achieve their goals.

"My greatest achievement is taking an unknown single parent of ethnic minority background, without qualifications, and making her a global case study and role model. I love what I do, there are not enough hours in a day, and I am proud that my enthusiasm inspires others".

"You must be the change you want to see" Gandhi                                                                                                                                     "You must be the change you want to see - No Excuses" Madi

I am the representative of my brand – a registered trade mark – because if Versace and Gucci could do it, so could I!

Madi stands for Make A Difference Ideas – everything I do has to make a change or my day has been wasted. The Om across the top is because I try to be ethical in everything I do.

Today that philosophy has also been transferred to my group of companies. The "MADI Group" – is a Group of International Private and Social Enterprises and NGOs with a mission: Local Action, Global Impact. The philosophy is to create innovative ideas tailored to local action which can achieve global impacts beneficial to a sustainable society.

My story is a challenging one but has made me who I am. I am honoured that today I am asked to speak to share my highs and lows and demonstrate how challenges can be turned into opportunities if the sense of purpose is the driver for change. I am a public speaker internationally, particularly in the field of entrepreneurship, female entrepreneurship, diversity; gender balance and my passion for corporate social responsibility CSR. My presentations, are spoken from the heart, motivate and inspire and seek to make others consider their ability to affect change.

My sense of purpose is not financial gain but sustainable change that brings greater equity to the people of the planet and values the human capital of those people as their greatest asset. I present and teach in schools, universities and to forward thinking businesses and organisations. My words are from personal experience gained from being a victim of domestic violence, a single parent and from establishing my first company from my kitchen at home, which grew to 2 factories and 35 staff, for which I received the honours of Asian Woman of Achievement and UK’s Best Boss.

This website has not been established to promote Madi Sharma the personality, but to inspire others to be the change they want to see.
