Description

WTF is Fuckup Nights?

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 is a global speaker series where stories of failed businesses and projects 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 drinks!

300+ cities, 84+ 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

Speakers:

Huda Alvi

Huda Alvi

Huda is Co Founder of The Girls Trip and Her Summit, and a proud mom and step-mom. After starting her own business at the age of 18, it was undeniable that entrepreneurship ran in her blood. She went door-to-door selling newspapers and magazines. Then at 25, she opened Istaff Management, a recruitment firm, which was able to succeed just short of a million-dollar company within its first year. People say all great things come from adversity, and that couldn’t be more true in Huda's case. She's been alone, defeated and tested over and over again - in her personal and business life.
