About

  • Fail Spectacularly is a free party at Joe’s Bar in Chicago.
  • We want you to blow off steam and laugh at work.
  • We’re throwing the party in conjunction with the Kennedy/Onrec Conference — but anyone can attend.
  • RSVP here.
  • Directions to Joe’s Bar.

Attendance is free.

This party has two great hosts.

  • Laurie Ruettimann is a seasoned and cynical HR professional with over a decade of experience in Fortune 500 organizations.
  • Jason Seiden turns capable people into savvy managers and leaders. A speaker, coach, and award-winning author, Jason is known for delivering genuine and practical content that is devoid of fluff and is immediately applicable.

Laurie and Jason are friends in real life, they were raised in the Chicago area, and they met through the career advice/blogging community. They both like puppies, long walks on the beach, and making trouble. Why not have a fun event for the people we love in our lives? Yes, we’re talking about you — the disaffected job seekers, cranky HR folks, and hyper-connected recruiters.

We love you. Party with us.
