Our networking rooms and sessions

Thursday Evening Cocktail Hour and Fail Fest

Failure is a reality for us all but how we respond to it will determine whether we remain stuck in limbo or are able to move forward.   

Fail Fest is a fast-paced, interactive exploration of the important role failure plays in driving innovation. In this relaxed open mic session, you will be invited to share your tales of failure and what you learned from it, in a safe, non-judgmental environment.  Please note that this will be conducted under Chatham House Rules.  

At the end of the session, attendees will vote for the failure that had the most impact and a prize will be awarded to the Failure Champion!  

Thursday 26 | 17:00-18:00
