Fail But Never Give Up | Alina Timofeeva | TEDxBedford

No Comments

How many times have you failed in something? What would you do if you come from a humble background, you want to work in another country and you don’t know anyone there to help you? What if you applied for 500 jobs in that country and got 497 rejections? Would you give up?

This TEDx talk will inspire you to let every failure be your catalyst and motivate you to adapt. It will help you to change your mindset and remember that failure is an opportunity to grow.

Alina Timofeeva is a multi-award-winning professional in digital topics, having won 7 awards just in 2021. Though working in a male dominated technology industry, she was promoted 4 times in 4 years – something only few women manage to succeed. Today she is an Associate Partner at Oliver Wyman, consulting top Financial Services firms globally as an expert in Digital, Cloud & Data.

About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized

Today, Alina is a multi-award-winning specialist in Data, Technology & Innovation. She works with
Oliver Wyman and previously with KPMG and Accenture, consulting the top Financial Services firms like HSBC, J.P. Morgan & Aviva, and helping them make this world safe, customer centric and fair, which is particularly important in the new reality.
