A little piece of Mark Abouzeid – Keynote Speech on Epic Failure (VIDEO)


“Okay, you’re right!” is a very dear project to me; a collection of life stories, documented through detailed interviews with a man who has never failed, and yet he is an expert in failure.

But who is Mark Abouzeid? Why should we hear his story and why is his story more important than others? It isn’t! His story could be my story, or your story; his story reflects a lifetime of happiness and pain; his story is about embracing life after admitting defeat.

Here is a glimpse into Mark’s life, where he shares some of his trials and lessons learned in a personal talk on the importance of epic failure.

Ela Vasilescu

I am a writer and a freelance journalist based in Florence, Italy. Ever since I can remember I loved stories and everything about them, from the storyteller who told them, to the paper they were written on.
