‘Glory of Failure’
Esmee Wilcox FRSA ,based in Norfolk, with experience of working with Ministers and Special Advisers in reactive political environments and now working in Local Government in Suffolk, will begin by explaining the project and then talk about her experiences of failure in government (chapter 10 of the book), reflecting on the discussions so far in Norwich, Cambridge and London before inviting responses to the questions “what are your positive experiences of failure?” and “how might we create more opportunities for appropriately positive responses to failure?”
‘The Glory of Failure’ is an RSA Fellows led project that is exploring and understanding failure in all its facets to develop our capacity to create and learn. Since 2009 Fellows with backgrounds as diverse as social enterprise, education, government and business been sharing experiences and developing insights into failure and this year published ‘The Failure Files’ – a collection of essays about failure.
They are now holding a series of talks by chapter authors around the country to bring the conversation to a wider audience and generate a richer understanding.
Please register your wish to attend by Friday 15th July.
We look forward to welcoming you and your guests.
