At Fail Safe 2018, we’re connecting leaders from non-profits, businesses, and the public sector for open and honest discussions about embracing and overcoming failure. Conversations will centre around two themes:

The psychology of failure and
how it manifests in organizations

How failure is linked to innovation,
growth, and capacity building


Delegates will be welcomed at a fun and casual Thursday evening reception, featuring PechaKucha-inspired short presentations delivered by delegates sharing their own lurid tales of professional adversity. Friday features two informative keynote presentations and various breakout sessions in non-traditional formats, with opportunities to network and share insight throughout.


Delegates will leave Fail Safe informed about how failure can manifest in organizations and confident in utilizing failure for good. At Fail Safe, participants will learn how to become comfortable with the uncomfortable, to embrace and overcome failure, and to build strategic and resilient organizations.

Is Fail Safe for you?

Do you work for a non-profit? A for-profit? The public sector?

Fail Safe is bringing together people from all walks of life, from any professional background, and with any skill set. We believe the conference—like our communities—thrives on our willingness to collaborate, share experience across borders, and occasionally wade into difficult conversations.

The only requirement is that you're eager to confront failure.
