Inspiring stories of failure from UG alumni
|When:||Mo 25-11-2019 19:00 - 21:30|
|Where:||Groningen, Van Swinderen Huys|
We usually hear success stories, but behind many successes often lie big mistakes. On the evening of Monday 25 November, three enterprising UG alumni will share openly how a blunder almost cost them a project – or even their career.
Wies van ’t Slot, Yvonne van der Woude and Wiepkje de Groot will share their inspiring stories of failure with other UG alumni during a ‘F*ck-Up Night’. This concept originates in Mexico and has grown into a global movement, in which groups of people meet up and share their mistakes. This is inspiring, because:
- We usually hear success stories, but behind many successes often lie big mistakes.
- Each mistake brings its own message and lesson.
- This is a different way of networking: rather than trying to sell yourself, you now also share your blunders. Thus, you are able to connect in a different way.
The event is organized by the Young Alumni Network of the University of Groningen.
