Donna Invited as Key Note Speaker for Fuckup Nights YYC

Congratulations to Donna Finley for being invited by Shahr Savizi and Amanda Ovaici to be one of the speakers at Fuckup Nights YYC. Donna spoke alongside Tyler Chisholm, Crystal Phillips, and Koleya Karringten. Donna shared her story of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra entering into bankruptcy protection in the early 2000s. This is the first time she’s discussed how she felt through that transformation here in Calgary.

“Our speakers tonight share vulnerabilities of when they have “fucked-up in their careers” our next speaker, Donna, is the woman you call when you’ve fucked-up.”

It was cathartic for Donna to be able to open up about how incredibly stressful and negative that period was. It’s hard to have new ideas that challenge traditional thinking; however, as entrepreneurs and innovators we have to stick to our guns.

ABOVE: Donna Finley was one of four key note speakers for the evening. She was thrilled to have two of her three kids join her – Rebecca Finley-Schidlowsky and Jeffery Finley-Schidlowsky.
