Failure can be devastating, but it can also make us stronger and more resilient. What if we accepted that failure is part of success and embraced it instead?
Entrepreneur and director of the Failure Institute Leticia Gasca calls us to move beyond shame and humiliation in her talk ‘Don’t fail fast- fail mindfully’ business educator Eddie Obeng calls for ‘Smart failure for a fast-changing world’ and social psychologist Thomas Curran’s talk ‘Our dangerous obsession with perfectionism is getting worse’ explores how the pressure to be perfect is driving a rise in mental illness and author of Eat Pray Love Elizabeth Gilbert talks us through ‘Success, failure and the drive to keep creating’

TEDx Hackney Libraries is a wonderful opportunity for local residents to get together to listen to experts talk about subjects that matter to us all. These events aren’t just about listening; the open discussion at each session encourages conversation about how these topics affect our everyday lives, inspire us to see things from a different perspective and could even spark change!
TEDx Hackney Council Libraries are inclusive events, ensuring that everyone has a voice, as we believe that personal stories and experiences are invaluable. We can learn from experts, but most of all we can learn from each other.
