March 14th, 2013 // KANEKO // National keynote speaker Marcus Nelson shares his experiences with failure and redemption in the first event of KANEKO’s new series, in partnership with the entrepreneurship efforts of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce. This will be the first of a three-part series of conversations scheduled in 2013. The series brings together exceptional speakers who will share their honest observations about the failures they have experienced and the redemptive lessons learned. Each program will highlight a national keynote speaker and a local figure who will tell their tales of failure and an academic speaker who can shed light on the psychology, sociology or science behind failure.
