Welcome to FuckUp Nights Melbourne! In this very special November edition, we are partnering with The School of Life, General Assembly and Inspire9 to present FuckUp Nights as part of the Think West 2016 program- a festival philosophy and culture across Melbourne's Inner West.
Fuckup Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share public business failure stories with hundreds of people attending each event around the world. Each month 3 speakers will be invited to talk about their fuckup stories; we’ll learn about their biggest mistakes, what they learned, how they moved on- all whilst sharing invaluable advice along the way.
The speakers will candidly share in 7 minutes:
* What their project / business was
* What went wrong / How it affected their personal life / What they learned / What they would do differently.
At the end of each person’s story, you’ll have a chance to ask questions- nothing too cheeky, but do feel free to dig around to gain some insights you might not hear elsewhere.
You’ll hear stories and advice you won’t get elsewhere - and these stories will (hopefully) put you in good stead to not make the same fuckups. Attendance is free, but we do ask you to register in advance.
The School of Life Australia is a secular organisation that is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one's past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand and, where necessary change, the world. From our café and classroom in Bourke St we offer classes, workshops, retreats, intensives, secular sermons, and therapies in person. We publish books, film our events and make a range of objects & tools that will assist you in the quest for a more fulfilled life. We also run a consulting and training service for businesses.
