Event description
Chatham House rules in progress. We hear from some epic founders about the mistakes that actually taught them something.

About this Event

We are always being told to learn from others mistakes, but when doing business, there doesn't seem to be an honest 'this is what I screwed up on' dialogue.

We love to celebrate successes but the getting there is always the better story.

Recently we read an article by woman of the moment Sharmadean Reid, All the Stuff I Got Wrong in 2019. It was so honest, useful and insightful that we thought we'd create an event inspired by it.

Hosted by Fleur Emery, startup expert, podcast host and Courier Magazine columnist, we'll be probing a panel of founders at different stages with their business, from different industries, about the mistakes they've made.

Not the PR stories that they share on their about us pages, we've asked the founders to really think about the mistakes they've learned from, and even since done differently.

Known to be an epic panel host, Fleur will be getting all the juicy and useful bits from this incredible inspiring panel.
