Event description

Description

Join us for the third Culture LabX Vancouver event. In this immersive lab we are getting down to the nitty-gritty and talking about failure. Hear stories from leaders who turned their biggest failures into powerful lessons they built upon in order to reach their greater heights.


This evening is intended to bring a sense of relief that a tribe is not alone in their battles. Too often we celebrate the victories and inspirations of a few. Attendees will walk away feeling they are "human" and as fallible as the person beside them.

It's about building connections rooted in humility and not boasting. The sharing of these intimate stories of mistakes opens the door for candid discussion. We will have 6 brave speakers sharing their most vulnerable failure stores: what it was, what they learned, and what the rest of us shouldn’t do.

You’ll come away with valuable insights and new connections. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Come prepared to listen, ask questions and share your favourite fail forward stories.


AGENDA

5:30pm - Registration and mingle
6:00pm - Open remarks
6:15pm - Sharing of stories begin
