Elizabeth Day has spent the last five years speaking to some of the best-known faces in Britain about what failure has taught them.

Next week, she will be headlining the third Ultimate Masterclass Festival event in Aberdeen, where she will discuss what she learned, plus her personal experiences, in what will be a masterclass in personal growth and development.

Her chart-topping podcast How To Fail With Elizabeth Day, which has recently reached 35 million downloads, is a celebration of all of the things that haven’t gone right.

It examines how learning from mistakes has helped her guests to succeed better.

Guests have included Bernie Sanders, Steven Bartlett, Rick Astley, Craig David, Greta Thunberg, Delia Smith, Lady Hale, Ed Miliband, Graham Norton, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Alistair Campbell and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

What is she going to talk about in Aberdeen?

In this masterclass, Elizabeth will share what she has learned from those 186 (and counting) interviews and distils them into seven principles of failure.

Practical, reassuring and inspirational, these principles offer a guide through life’s rough patches.

From failed exams to romantic break-ups, from career setbacks to confidence crises, from navigating anxiety to surviving loss, Elizabeth recognises, and celebrates, the fact that failure connects us all. It is what makes us human.

What is UMF?

The Ultimate Masterclass Festival is about bringing together some of the brightest business minds to Aberdeen and giving them a platform to share the secrets of their success.

Why? Because we want to inspire new thinking and new ideas to grow our local economy.

The events programme has been designed and curated by the events and marketing teams at the Chamber of Commerce, and this year we have purposely organised all events in the city centre as part of our commitment to bring fresh life to Union Street and the surrounding areas.
