Issue Convention – the anniversary edition

2018 is a special and important year for De Issuemakers: it marks the tenth anniversary of our agency! We celebrated the kick-off of our anniversary year with our Issue Convention on Thursday the 25th of January, in a full room at De Balie in Amsterdam.


Entrepreneur, trendwatcher and inspirator Christian Kromme started things off as keynote speaker, giving us his vision of the future as he took us on a journey through the exponentially changing world in which we live. We then presented the Issue Award 2018 for the ninth time. This award goes to the person or organisation who best managed to put a topic on the agendas of both politics and society. This year, it went to the gentlemen of PO in Actie. After this celebratory moment, social scientist Linda Duits gave a lecture on the issue of 2017: #metoo. Her lecture

Last but not least, before we popped the champagne, we proudly presented the book Issuedenken: Echte bazen maken impact (The Issue Mindset: True Bosses have an Impact). In the book Issuedenken, the founders and managing partners of De Issuemakers Mayke and Sybrig van Keep share their many years of expertise and experience in getting issues on the agenda and creating impact.

We, De Issuemakers, look back on a positively great afternoon, and would like
to thank everyone for coming.
