Event description

Description

Fear&Fail Conference is champions' stage - for courageous and daring.
3 powerful stories by 3 people on their personal journeys to freedom from their fears and failures.

Each story reveals the path of the speaker - their beliefs, challenges, limits and breakthroughs. It's real, authentic stories all of us can relate to, learn form and use as a tool for personal growth.

While failure is only a perspective of looking at things, fears are our underlying forces that shape our realities. Fear and Fail method is transformative in nature as it involves sharing deep emotions in an intimate safe setting. Each speaker has 15 minutes to share their story and take us on the journey we've perhaps also experienced, but didn't reflect on in such a way.

Fear&Fail is about witnessing the transformation process of someone daring to get up and tell their personal story to get over or discover the fears that drive us all.

We as audience, help the speakers by asking further questions in the Q&A session which uncovers even more about the mindset - how we deal with adversity and how we find ways to persist and move on. We talk about it because we believe that creativity and innovation can thrive only in an environment where trust and authenticity exist. Showing our vulnerable sides is therefore not a sign of weakness but of great courage and capability for leadership and entrepreneurship.

Come to be inspired! Come to grow! Come to connect with others in a meaningful way!

Meet our brave speakers and book your spot to witness their incredible journeys live:
