  4. Recipe
    • 13:00-13:30 Opening & Intro Material*
    • 13:30-15:00 Open Mic Session*
    • 15:00-A!er Party (with Refreshments)
    * Presentation & Video materials (Intro, 5 interviews, and two collages) will be published on the
    website. You could select the video you think will best suit your target audience.
    * Open Mic Session: Anyone could come up to the stage and share their failures and lessons within
    5 mins. There should be a person who facilitates in the middle. The person is responsbile for
    encouraging people to speak up and others to applaude after each sharing. The timer is preferably
    accompanied but too strict time managment might hurt the mood.

  5. Spices*
    • Post-secret: Participants confess to their failures by writing them
    down in a post card. Later we display on the web.
    • ‘Doomed to fail’ Games: Have participants do tricky things (e.g.
    Juggling or Tongue twister before audience.) The point is to make
    them fail. The one with most courage will be rewarded.
    • Pledge Bold Action: Prepare a big white board or an equivalent. Let
    people publicly announce their dreams.
    * For more details or suggestions, contact [email protected]
    * Only when you have extra time and energy, use the above. While they will significantly improve
    the taste of the event, you should remember not to overdo them; Less is more.
