F*ckUp Night VOL.9

F*ckUp Night VOL.9

Everyone's favourite night. Nothing like watching accomplished, confident people share their still-raw, professional disasters with a crowd of 200+ colleagues who have been drinking beer.

Better than crying. Cheaper than therapy. 

F*ckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. It started in 2012 in Mexico City and we've brought it to Victoria.

3 "f*ckuppers" will have 7 minutes each to tell their story and up to 10 minutes for Q&A. What was the project? What went wrong? What did they learn? What would they do differently? 

This F*ckUp Night is sponsored by the Roy Group! 

Please note this event is 19+

F*ckUppers (Speakers):

  • Erin Skillen
    (A pivot that lead to the cesspool that is Reality TV, a constant need to be "niche" and 3 f*ckups that lead to being lost in her own reality)
  • Gordon McDougall
    (Acquisition isn't everything, a huge (mis)adventure in Costa Rica and before you know it - Kim Kardashian will have gotten there first)
  • Ashley Howard
    (Kickstarter pressure can break more than spirits, leave you hanging and before you know it, you're googling how to conduct a recall...)
