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.

About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
