Failure Day – learn how to turn negatives into positives

Find out how you can learn from failure and use it as a stepping stone to success at the first-ever Failure Day, which being hosted by the Students’ Union on Saturday 15 March.

Failure Day is being held in collaboration with Fail Forward. The event will include practical workshops, guest speakers and a showcase of the latest technology. It aims to challenge the perception of failure as a negative outcome and instead highlight its important role in growth and learning.

Four of the speakers at the event are Loughborough graduates, who have learnt from failure on the way to enjoying business success.

−      Peter Janes has launched rewards network Shopa.

−      Ross Kemp has developed the award-winning life-saving craft – Asap.

−      Claud Williams has developed the creative marketing collective The Creative Circle

−      And graduate of the Year 2013 Caleb Meakins, who is now employed as a Global Poverty Ambassador by the Global Poverty Project, undertook the ‘My 40 Days’ campaign, which saw him undertake seemingly impossible challenges doomed to fail.

To book your place at the event, go to the Fail Forward website.
