Description

Turning fear into fun, is the gift of creativity - Joe Gebbia (founder of Airbnb)

Whether you're designing great works of art or building a world-class company - we've all felt like a ‘failure’ at some point. These fears are not just inherent in all of us, but a mandatory part of the journey.

Come join our workshop led by some of HK’s most successful business leaders as we question, explore, and unearth the issues that surround fear, failure, and social expectations.

Please note that this is an interactive session (with lots of wine) and will consist of collaborative discussions and rapid prototyping, requiring all attendees to participate. Be prepared to meet, talk, share, laugh and most importantly have fun!

Speakers will include:
