Let's talk about failure – it's normal
Failure should be encouraged. It is often through understanding our failures that we become successful. FailCon celebrates failure.
How to encourage failure is a challenging question. FailCon's answer is to get people talking about their failures. People attending the conference learn to embrace their failures, then all of the talks get published so everyone can view them.
The value created here is that we begin to feel less alone in our failures during the creative process. We learn to embrace failures and use them as a tool to become more successful. FailCon is one step toward normalizing and learning from failure, instead of keeping it a secret of top innovators.
