"There's no such thing as failure, there's only feedback," says Jim Kwik, founder of Kwik Learning. "Failure or feedback is the breakfast of champions. A lot of times, when it comes to learning, which is my specialty, a lot of people do not learn faster because they are scared of failing."

Kwik was one of the expert speakers at the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival (SharjahEF) 2019, organized by Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center, Sheraa, last November. He took part in a two-day program curated by Vishen Lakhlani, founder of Mindvalley, an online personal growth platform
