Event description
During this interactive session, we activate the book and its principles using peer-to-peer learning and sharing of experiences.

About this Event

💡 At EBBC (Entrepreneurial Business Book Club) we bring together a curious, ambitious and growth-minded crowd to actively engage around a selected (business-related) book or an interesting topic. We strive to improve in life and career through books, self-development and peer-to-peer learning.

We look forward to seeing you at the monthly interactive EBBC session in Dubai (every 3rd Saturday of the month). This one is centered around "How to Fail: Everything I’ve Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong” by Elizabeth Day.

Expect an interesting, introspective and practical session!

DISCLAIMER: Author of the book will not be present. This is by and for the EBBC community and other curious minds.

📖

Inspired by her hugely popular podcast, How To Fail is Elizabeth Day’s brilliantly funny, painfully honest and insightful celebration of things going wrong.

This is a book for anyone who has ever failed. Which means it’s a book for everyone.

If I have learned one thing from this shockingly beautiful venture called life, it is this: failure has taught me lessons I would never otherwise have understood. I have evolved more as a result of things going wrong than when everything seemed to be going right. Out of crisis has come clarity, and sometimes even catharsis.

Part memoir, part manifesto, and including chapters on dating, work, sport, babies, families, anger and friendship, it is based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger. It's a book about learning from our mistakes and about not being afraid.

Uplifting, inspiring and rich in stories from Elizabeth’s own life, How to Fail reveals that failure is not what defines us; rather it is how we respond to it that shapes us as individuals.

Because learning how to fail is actually learning how to succeed better. And everyone needs a bit of that.

💪 Come prepared to get the most out of the session for yourself as well as others:

We read, we gather, we learn and we activate (y)our Knowledge!
