The Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in London wrapped up yesterday. So today’s WMPW is a special edition dedicated to the conference.

Read on to see what speakers had to say about Brexit, the Orlando shootings, where Facebook will find growth, what Uber wants, and the latest trend in retail.

But first, I’d like to pass on one of my favorite lines from the two-day confab. It came from Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, the United Arab Emirates’s minister for tolerance.

Asked by Fortune‘s Nina Easton how female entrepreneurs can overcome the fear of failure, Al Qasimi said it’s important to remember that when we fail, we “fall forward.” “A lot of times, we actually learn more from our mistakes than we learn from our successes,” she said. With that in mind, she urged the audience to encourage women to pursue the careers they want. Sage advice in my book.
