Everyone experiences failure, but we don’t like it, and we see it as “A Bad Thing”. This presentation by Dr David Hillson explains why that is the wrong conclusion, and offers a structured response to failure, drawing on the presenter’s many years of experience as a successful failure. It explores the links between success and failure, including the Failure Formulae and the Success/Failure Ecocycle. Discover the underlying characteristics of failure and understand the multiple dimensions of failure. True failure comes from not trying at all, giving up too soon, and not learning or changing.
David is an international consultant and trainer, award-winning author and speaker on risk management, known globally as The Risk Doctor. He is a Chartered Manager, Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). His business brand is “The Risk Doctor”. David has been involved with the RSA’s Risk Commission and their Glory of Failure project. The goal of this project is to change society's attitude to failure, encouraging a more healthy approach to risk taking and removing the taboo around failure.
David has worked in more than 40 countries. He is particularly interested in improving project and program risk management, risk psychology and proactive opportunity management within the risk process. He will speak on developing creativity within organisations from failure.
