An Evening with Elizabeth Day
Come along to enjoy Elizabeth's signature wit, warmth, and trademark honesty in a candid conversation with Cheek Media Co. co-founder Hannah Ferguson. Together they'll tackle the big "fails" around life and love ... is success a myth? How can we turn crisis into clarity? And: is that person on Hinge ghosting me or are they just playing hard to get?
It's an evening to celebrate the beauty of the human journey – the triumphs, the failures, and everything in between. Bring your own questions. One night only!
