Blacticulate: How to Bounce Back and Flourish

It Ain't All Good, and That's The Truth:


How to bounce back and flourish.


'Failure is the only opportunity to begin again. This time, more wisely'- Henry Ford.


Whether in your studies, business or home life, you will inevitably encounter some bumps in the road, setbacks or ‘failures’. Learning how to bounce back and take the ‘opportunity to begin again’ can be invaluable. With Ford’s words in mind, please join us for a Blacticulate workshop where two creative entrepreneurs will share with us their journeys, their successes and failures and how they handled these challenges.


Ade Bamgbala will chair the discussion. Ade is a digital marketer, public speaker and the founder of Blacticulate, a podcast series that features UK Black professionals, with the mission of finding out HOW their guests do what they do, so you can too.
