Loughborough are running a day to celebrate Failure and eradicate the negative stigma that is attached to it. The day will be all about embracing pitfalls, sharing stories and considering how we can use these experiences to empower us to be better, bolder and brighter.
On the 15th of March 2014, 10am – 4:30pm, Fail Forward will host its first Failure Day event at Loughborough Students’ Union, with support from NACUE and Loughborough Students’ Union. Inspirational speakers will share their personal journeys of failure and discuss how this has paved the way to success.
