Behind every success story are a couple of failures, no matter who you are and that it is absolutely normal. Back by popular demand, Fuckup Nights the Namibian edition will be hosting their second gathering and this time, with six stories to learn from.
You may know them from their achievements however you may not know how they got where they are. These six businesswomen and men will be sharing their struggles they have experienced to get them where they are today through the Fuckup Nights platform at Garden Inn.
Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. The six speakers; Daniel Haufiku, Shiwomeho Kella, Gazza, Courage the Comedian, Michael Chikwililwa and Paulina Alfeus, will get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckups. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that had to be recalled will all be shared.
“Fuckup Nights aims to bring people together and discuss topics that are not addressed as often as they should be. We want to help people understand that even their entrepreneurs or people that they look up to face challenges and have failed often at times, because failure is part of any journey,” said Ilke Platt, one of the organisers.
Fuckup Nights will be hosted on the 26 February at Garden Inn (61 Bismarck Street). Come learn from their fuckups for N$ 50 at the gate.
