Event description

Description

In Health and Life Sciences, failure is simply not published or shared. It's swept under the rug and made invisible. Fuckup Nights Toronto is here to change that!

What's 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 beers!

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
