F*ckUp Club (May Edition)

Tuesday, 21st May 2024, 6.30pm 

It’s here! The seventh instalment of the ever-growing Fuckup Nights London!

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.

Hosted, as ever, by Home Grown member, Stephen Sacks.

Francis Davis and his computer company took on Steve Jobs and his Apple Ipad. Like a burger van taking on McDonalds the result was (with hindsight)  predictable.

What does a mechanical engineering graduate 4 years blue chip manufacturing experience know about starting a small business? Turns out fuck all. This is the tale of Jon Dweck’s first time start-up disaster which took him from very little to even less.

We are always told that property is a safe investment. So find out how Amanda Shayle managed to lose £1.5m on a house that cost her £1.2m to buy (not a typo). Ironically her property investment made her homeless.

Ralph DeLisle‘s Linked In post said it all….

“Struggling to process how mental this is but….😱 ….stripping myself naked 😳 (metaphorically of course) on LinkedIn literally changed my life. It was 28th December…on a 4-hour coach trip to London, I decided to post about failing with my business, IKÓ Drinks. I was down…in a dark place. Exhausted and dejected. The aim? To throw in the towel and get a job ❌”

If you want to hear how you can learn from our mistakes, hear our stories, and network with a group that recognises that businesses and their leaders must fail to ultimately succeed then you need to show up on the 21st May 2024 for what promises to be an amazing evening of beer (first one is free), laughs and therapy.
