A seasoned veteran of the imposter syndrome battle talks the science and the solutions

Hey you… yes, you. You who think you’re making it up as you go along; that you aren’t up to your day job and you’re bound to be found out soon. You who shrugs off a compliment because hey, anyone could do it (and someone else would probably be better).

Stop listening to your inner critic for five minutes and come and sit down.

Estimates suggest that up to 70% of us experience Imposter Syndrome – the feeling of inadequacy, that you will be found out, that you are a fraud. At best, it makes us self-deprecating, and at worst it can inhibit career progression, stifle creativity and negatively impact our mental health.

This workshop will take a wry look at our biggest critic, our own internal voice, to understand why we believe our own fake news, and offer some insight in how you can change the narrative for the better.
