Talk Title

How to be a successful fail artist


You’ve heard of a con artist, right? Someone is is an expert at conning people. Well, I’m here to introduce you to a new concept, failure artist. A failure artist is someone who has become an expert in handling failure. I’ve had so many failures I feel I’ve earned the title of failure artist.

Today, I’m going to share with you a story on how I became a motorcycle rider. Riding a motorbike around Australia has always been a secret dream of mine. The only problem was, I didn’t own a motor bike, and I didn’t know how to ride one either! In this talk, I’ll take you through some of the epic failures and the parallels between that and my life as a software tester. I’ll then share my lessons learned and how perception is often half the battle when dealing with failure.

Start up those engines and let a great day of learning begin!
