A kōrero on failure

Seed Waikato presents 'A kōrero on failure' A4.jpg

More often that not we hear stories of success, of how people have done remarkable things, or become remarkable people. But we don't often share stories on failure. And more importantly, the golden nuggets that come from the experience of failure. That's why we're throwing our April event. To bring a community of people together to hear inspiring, challenging and encouraging stories on failure in all its glory to remind us that the road to epic stuff is filled with ups and downs.

If you're a tradie, creative, entrepreneur, professional, student, parent, volunteer, freelancer or anything in between, our events are a place for you to connect with new people, find inspiration, and learn something new.
