Fuckup Nights Birmingham Vol 1
Mon 10 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Welcome to Fuckup Nights Birmingham, an intimate evening of storytelling and collective wisdom.
Let’s get real: we’ve all fucked up at some point. What’s important is that we see fuckups as an opportunity to improve, to iterate and to evolve our ideas and ourselves. The beauty of the fuckup is that it is uniquely yours – yours to own, yours to play with and yours to share with the world.
Fuckup Nights (FUN) is a casual arena to do this in. Every month we’ll be bringing together 3 or 4 speakers, a (hopefully) empathy-filled crowd and a safe space here at Impact Hub Birmingham for people to share what they’ve learned from a business or project failure that they personally experienced. We’re proud to be joining the international congregation of fucker uppers with this, our first event, and we will be following the Fuckup Nights format as adopted by 192 cities in 67 countries.
HOW IT WORKS
Fuckup Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share publicly business failure stories. Hundreds of people attend each event to hear three to four entrepreneurs share their failures. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a question/answer session, as well as time for networking (beers).

Doors Open: 6.45pm
Talks: 7pm – 8.30pm
Networking / Reflection: ’till 9.30pm
Our speaker line-up for this exciting new event is currently being confirmed. You can decide whether or not this is to keep you guessing or if we just fucked it up and left it too late, but follow @FUN_Brum on twitter for the latest updates.
