Event description

Description

For every ‘Got Milk?’ or ‘Just Do It,’ there’s an awful soda ad with one of the Jenner sisters (you know which one). Advertising is a tough game and in order to make it big, you’ve got to learn from your mistakes -- and then learn it a second time for good measure. To celebrate and appreciate these failures, we’ve rounded up some of the best in the business to share their fuckups with you.

Join us at 6:30PM on August 29th at Miami Ad School Toronto for a very special, advertising edition of Fuckup Nights Toronto. We’ll drink, we’ll laugh, and we’ll all learn why fucking up just part of the journey to success.

WTF is Fuckup Nights Toronto?

Failure is a part of any success story, but we don't talk about it enough. We've all been to plenty of events where people tell you how they hacked, hustled, and created their success, but very few where someone gets up and says "I totally messed up, and this is what you can learn from it."

Fuckup Nights Toronto is part of global speaker series where stories of professional failure are told, questioned and celebrated. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a Q&A session, as well as time for mingling and food + drinks!

250+ cities, 80+ countries, 10 minutes, 10 images, 1 failure.


Agenda:

6:30 - 7:00 pm: Registration, meeting fellow fuckuppers, drinks and food (included in your ticket price!)

7:00 - 8:30pm: Fuckup presentations + Q&A

8:30 - 9:30pm: More drinks, more mingling with fellow fuckuppers

Nancy Crimi-Lamanna

Chief Creative Officer at FCB Toronto

Nancy Crimi-Lamanna

Nancy accidentally became one of Canada’s first interns when she offered her copywriting services free of charge over 20 years ago.

Eventually she went on to become a salaried employee and an awarded creative working at agencies ranging from small independents to large multi-nationals. While there, she led many of Canada’s largest brands and created some of Canada’s most recognized campaigns. Her work has been awarded nationally and globally at virtually every show including the Cannes Lions, D&AD, London International Awards, CLIO’s, Effies, One Show and was recently ranked among the top 10 Creative Directors in Canada.

Nancy also has the distinction of bringing home Canada’s first Integrated Lion for her Ministry of Health Social Smoking campaign and creating the most awarded Canadian Campaign in 2017 at Cannes. “Down Syndrome Answers” was also recognized by the UN on World Down syndrome day and chosen as Adage’s best campaign for good. It’s innovative work like this that has helped make FCB Toronto DigitalAgency of the Year and the most-awarded Canadian agency at Cannes, 2 years in a row. This year, she was chosen by Adweek as one of 33 Brand Stars that are shaping Toronto into the creative hub it is today.
