Session 18

Chaired by Andy Doe (UK), founder, Proper Discord

Previous Epic Fail sessions have dealt with the pressing issues of our time: serious mistakes, bullshit and assholes. This year, we tackle questions both practical and philosophical around the subject of ineptitude. The useless tend to have no idea that they fundamentally lack the core skills required for their occupation. How can you be sure this doesn't describe you? How do you keep working once you know this describes your boss? How can companies insulate themselves from the risk of incapable managers? Is there any hope for the confirmed cases?

Please bring: Your stories of incompetence, a sense of fun and a willingness to join in.
Please do not bring: Video cameras or recording devices
Some form of strong alcoholic beverage will be provided free of charge.
