Failing Upwards, As Quickly As Possible
Sept 2 (Wed) | 1:00pm – 1:45pm
Guest: Christopher Hugentobler (BEcon&Fin 2014), Ex-Growth Lead at Snapask
Host: Sally Oh (BSocSc 2020)
This week’s episode of Fireside Wednesday with Christopher Hugentobler (BEcon&Fin 2014) focused on fundamental soft-skills with a focus on how to fail upwards, a must-have skill in these difficult times.
Through sharing of various personal anecdotes, Chris shared how he overcame failures and went further to mould it as a stepping stone, as well as various tips he gained through his experiences.
To wrap up, Chris gave two tips to those navigating on an unplanned path.
- “Expect failures” when starting something and “realise your original purpose”
- “Choose the right manager and not the job” as connecting with the right people is crucial.
Thank you Chris for his enthusiastic sharing in this episode and a huge thanks to everyone who tuned-in!
