Entrepreneurs Club: How to fail in business

How can you turn failure around and come back stronger? 

Seminars | Workshops

We share our biggest failures, what happened next and invite you to do the same.

Failed exam, bad decision, missed goal, and another ‘’thank you’’ email from the job interview you think you nailed? We all face failures, big or small, but what happens next – how do you find the lesson and move forward?

At the next Entrepreneurs Club, we will hear from Martin Sandhu, entrepreneur and founder of Nuom; the company that embraces digital innovation in the healthcare and well-being industries, and James Wells, a sales and marketing pro, public speaker and former international elite athlete.

They will share their stories, their biggest failures, and how they turned it around.

The session will also host peer networking, an interactive session on your CV of failures, snacks and refreshments.

  • Location: Dryden Enterprise Centre, Dryden Street, Nottingham, NG1 4FQ
