Imposter Syndrome and other topics – Newton

It was a pleasure to speak at your conference in Bristol, and to run some of the breakout workshops. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch. Below you will find some extra information about the topics we discussed, together with some useful links for more info

The Imposter Phenomenon

in this section you will find some extra information, based on my own research and that of other experts, and other useful information relating to the Imposter Syndrome (truly a Phenomenon!).

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 am one year into 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.

You can download my briefing document Boost Confidence and Banish the Imposter here, it contains some extra information as well as that which I was able to cover in our session.
