International Women’s Day – FAILING UP – An Evening of Shared Stories

TRC and Leading ideas present… Failing Up!

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 we are hosting an intimate evening of personal stories from brilliant women in the Creative Industries who we know, admire or have had the pleasure of working with over the years.

The brief is simple: our speakers will talk about a time when something challenged them or they felt like they had failed. All we’re asking is that the women are brave and honest, using this moment as an opportunity to embrace a time when something didn’t quite go their way, and how they dealt with/are dealing with the event.

Feedback from last year’s ‘Failing Up’:

“Thank you TRC for reminding me tonight of the BRILLIANCE of women – such honest, smart, compassionate and funny speakers. A special evening”
