Imposter Syndrome

Imposter syndrome impacts 70% of high achievers at some point in time, so it’s reasonably commonplace. However people with imposter syndrome often find it hard to say how they feel which further compounds the feelings of isolation and fear connected with the syndrome. 

For this evening we will be creating a safe supportive space where you will be able to: 

  • Discover what Imposter Syndrome is. 

  • Hear previous shfWIT speakers share their experiences of imposter syndrome and the steps they took to overcome it. 

  • Identify your imposter activity and learn most effective strategies for overcoming the feelings associated with imposter Syndrome.

Every attendee will leave with 3 practical steps they can take when the feelings of imposter syndrome bubble up.

Our evening will be hosted by Amanda Cookson, Co founder of Northern Value Creators.  Amanda specializes in working with technical specialists, founders and leaders from the creative and digital sector.
