What is Fuckup Nights? Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. Started in Mexico in 2012, today Fuckup Nights happen in 90 countries and 320 cities.

- Ruska Tamazashvili, Head of People Engagement and Development (HR) at adjarabet.com "I was born in Tbilisi, and this is the city where I found stoicism- the philosophy which made me think about society and the ways we all are connected. I became an HR, and it’s more than 10 years that I've been serving the great mission- connecting people."
