"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." - Samuel Beckett
Stories of success are incomplete without stories of failures.
During this inspiring evening, we bring together diverse, high-profile speakers to share stories of their past failures and unexpected twists in life, and most importantly, how these events have brought them closer to their successes today. They embrace their professional and personal fuckups in an attempt to shatter the taboo surrounding failure and show us what we can learn from our mistakes.
Join us in this movement to be bold, adventurous, and unafraid of failing. Do not miss out on this unique opportunity to hear the captivating stories of entrepreneurs and high-level executives followed by a Q&A session.
