Technical level


Failures are perceived as akin to death. A dead end. It is the most subliminal emotion that we often just whisper of, even to ourselves. We tend to believe there is nothing beyond. The fact is that most successes are a by-product of failures.

This 20 minutes session will cover the truth behind why failure occurs and the reasons behind the fear it brings along with it. Activities and demonstrations will uncover the calculated steps to overcome failure, each time it knocks on our door.

Visual and verbal representation will be in play to demonstrate these methods, with the audience being core participants towards combined success.


Over 7 billion individuals in this world are interlinked by one experience faced by all and that is failure. This interactive session will explore the least acknowledged ‘F’ word, our fear of failure and how to overcome it. Failure = Success is a formula that will be discussed, with the help of an interactive session engaging the audiences to understand the importance of failure and how to overcome it in order to achieve it’s close cousin, success!

The importance of failure, overcoming the stigma attached to it, which results in us fearing the consequences of failure, will be covered through activities an demnstrations. Analytical exercises centring the process of distiniguishing between failure and success, along with the truth of both these occurrences being momentary and stepping stones for future endeavors will be dwelled into.

This fast paced session will reveal the tricks of the trade to overcome not only the fear of failure but the aspect of failure, through a three step method.

The audience will be the driving factor to these steps and the surprises in store will be the gps to us reaching our mark.


Participants wouldn’t be required to bring anything with them, however surprises and installations are in store!
