It was a pleasure to speak to you all through Zoom (the power of technology!) and thank you so much for taking the time to join the session and for all of your questions. If there are any issues or questions you didn't get the chance to raise, or which have been prompted by our discussions please do feel free to contact me. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07779 646976.
You will also have seen that I am a great supporter of the work being done by Anxiety UK, which is even more importnat in the current climate. I know many chairites are seeking funds to keep themselves going, so don't feel obliged to donate, but if you'd like to spare a pound or two, you can find out more about the charity and make a donation via my fundraising page.
On this webpage you will find some extra information on the imposter syndrome (really a phenomenon) which is based on my own research and that of other experts, and some other useful links, plus suggestions for TED talks and further reading.
We are still at an early stage in understanding the impact of the Imposter Phenomenon, my interest is in understanding the most effective ways of managing those imposter feelings and passing on this information to others. As I mentioned, I have recently re-started my PhD research on this topic. If you are interested in keeping up to date with my research findings and musings on the topic, do sign up to receive my newsletter.

On the video tab of this website you'll find a panel discussion on the imposter syndrome with Circle Co. which provides an interesting insight into the imposter at work. I also add blogs and podcasts to the site, so do take a look around.
