In 2008, Mark sat down with his wife over dinner to discuss taking on a project that could make or break his business. A project that – if it went wrong – would do it in front of half a million people. The fear of failure came down to a coin toss; risk it, or not. Mark will share his thoughts and experiences from that day and others on how failure, and not the fear of it, should be an integral part of your life. How failure will make you a better designer, a better coworker or manager, so you can help create company cultures where it's not just OK to screw up: it's expected.
