FuckUp Nights Bristol #3 - January 2024

Jan 9, 2024

5:00 pm


8:30 pm

Most people fuck up at some point...and most people live to tell the tale.

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Events across the globe get 3 or 4 people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup/mistake. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, stories like these will all be told.

At this third event we wil have three fabulous speakers who are going to share their mistakes.  No happy ending for any of these three stories!

  • John Harvey: Three months after the launch of his business John found himself stuck on his sofa unable to leave the house. He had burnt out , but how did he arrive at this place?
  • Speaker 2 to be confirmed
  • Speaker 3 to be confirmed

John likes nothing more than to break bread and enjoy stimulating conversations with business people. Fortunately his business now allows him to indulge in this passion and he spends his time operating in the South West. However, it hasn’t been all plain sailing and he will talk about his burnout and the lessons learnt.

Let's change the narrative, let's #ShareTheFailure and learn from it.
