Further details about this event

In November 2024, the Learning From Failure Conference Returns.

Some years ago, we delivered a one-day conference where people could present, talk, share things that had gone wrong in dentistry and outside of dentistry, and be honest about how hard it was to do some of the stuff we do.

We had the chief safety officer for EasyJet talk about pilot safety and the black box thinking concept.

Colin presented the case with a full arch patient who had serious complications, and they presented side by side on stage about why he didn't send Colin to the GDC following the complications that he suffered from.

The showstopper at those conferences was Craig Wales, the head and neck surgeon in Scotland, who lectured on an orbital carcinoma, which shut the room down for minutes when people could hardly speak when he reached the 'punch line'.

And so, we do it again. Learning From Failure is back at The Campbell Academy and The Campbell Clinic on November 23rd this year. It ties up with the charity ball, a Christmas fancy dress event on the same night, so it's an amazing day out if you fancy it.

Aims & Objectives

This is CPD with a difference. It is for people who genuinely want to improve things. This is a day of education for sharing ‘failures’ in and outside dentistry.


There will be five speakers in total, the 'headliner' being Michael Edwards - also known as 'Eddie the Eagle'.

Eddie, whose story was portrayed in a Hollywood film by Taron Egerton, will discuss his incredible journey to the 1988 Olympic Games and what he learned from his failures along the way!

It's only £220, including VAT, for a not-for-profit conference with great speakers in a great venue with great food.

We really hope to see you there!
