This past weekend, I had the pleasure of giving a keynote speech for the 2014 Hult Prize finalists, a social entrepreneurship accelerator for university students. Many thanks to Mansi Kakkar for the invitation to speak and to Kate Michi Ettinger for the referral.

My 20-minute talk was entitled, “How to Fail Successfully.” The video is above, the slides below.

The delightful sketches in the slides are courtesy of my long-time collaborator, creative consultant extraordinaire, Amy Wu. The cute kids are courtesy of my sister and brother-in-law. The stories of failure are all my own, although I do go into a mini-rant about failure competitions.

I'd love to hear what you think! Please leave a comment below.
