Note: Speaker information is preliminary and subject to change

Anyone can suffer with Impostor Syndrome and fearing they’re not good enough – it happens to all people and at all levels (especially in tech and even when you’re really successful!). Today we’ll discuss how successful people “re-write” our mental programming to deliver our dream life and vision for the future.

Session takeaways

  • how to recognise imposter syndrome
  • how to deal with it in yourself and others
  • how to face your fears and live your dream

Building diversity and inclusion into the centre of what you do and making it part of your corporate DNA, fosters a culture of innovation, growth and resilience – it just makes sense”.
