Elizabeth Day is an award-winning author and broadcaster. Her chart-topping podcast, How to Fail with Elizabeth Day, is a celebration of all of the things that haven’t gone right. Every week, in a one-on-one interview, a guest discusses what they have learned from failure. In this masterclass, Elizabeth will explore her own experiences and how when she removed both the fear and ego, saw failure very differently: not as something that defines us, but as a missing piece of knowledge that helps us come closer to completing the jigsaw puzzle of who we truly are. To date, Elizabeth has written five novels which collectively have gained her a Betty Trask Award, Observer Book of the Year, and a Richard and Judy Summer Book Club pick. Alongside her writing, Elizabeth is an adept broadcaster. She is one of the two main presenters for the Sky Arts Book Club Live, co host of BBC Radio 4’s Open Book and has presented shows on Classic FM.
