In 25 years of UX design, Krys Blackwood has had some spectacular failures in every category – from broken code, to bad design, to failed collaborations. If we “fail up,” Krys is living somewhere in the clouds. However, Krys believes that in order to succeed, you have to embrace and even celebrate your failures.

She creates a safe environment for her team by openly sharing her “fabulous flops,” leading by example to demonstrate how to learn, grow and recover from those face-plant moments in life. Come hear her stories from in the trenches – at Silicon Valley startups, Fortune 500 companies, and even at NASA. You’ll see that even monkeys fall out of trees.
