Curator, F*ck Up Nights
Garry is the General Manager of Inspire9, Melbourne’s original community-led coworking space, which enters it’s tenth year of existence in 2018. Formerly working in Partnerships and Community Engagement for General Assembly in Australia, Garry regularly establishes strategic partnerships with innovative companies and individuals throughout the tech, business and creative sectors.
As an advocate for non-traditional career pathways and pursuing a career with passion, purpose and meaning, Garry has recently been involved in building up the FuckUp Nights meetup in Australia, highlighting stories of failure and the wisdom and resilience gained from experiences in one’s personal journey.
With multiple projects on the go, interests in everything from storytelling to pop-culture and a belief in the power of placemaking and community activations, it is Garry’s opinion that there is a place for creative misfits to transform the conventions of what a normal career looks like.
Garry will be hosting a special Purpose edition of F*ck Up Nights as an official Purpose side event.

"True, people fail at aspects of work and in life, frequently. But the resilience required to persevere through setbacks and adversity, forging on with new perspective, is always acknowledged most upon reflection."
