Looking for an inspirational speaker on the imposter syndrome?
Have you ever wondered when you would be ‘found out’ or felt terrified at making a mistake because it ‘proves’ you are not perfect, and therefore not up to the job?
Kate Atkin can help…
I deliver keynotes, workshops and seminars on the Imposter Syndrome, Confidence, Resilience and Presenting with Impact. I am experienced in facilitating online versions of my interactive workshops and training sessions.
Please also visit the imposter tab on this website for some advice on coping with Imposter feelings (and an explanation of why it is not a syndrome, but really the Imposter Phenomenon).
The impact of training in the softer skills is often under-estimated. For management and leadership, there is nothing soft about the changes that you will make after attending one of my workshops.
Enthusiastic and energetic, I will ensure you find the messages practical and applicable by employing a mix of Positive Leadership, Accelerated Learning, NLP and intuition whether held online or in person.
As an inspirational and motivational speaker, I really enjoy connecting with people by speaking at events, both in-person and online. My most popular talk – ‘Success: what lies behind the Mask?’ – covers an exploration of courage, confidence and the imposter phenomenon. It can be tailored to suit your event. Other topics include:
- The Science of Happiness
- Image, Impact and Influence
- Presenting Confidently
Have you ever wondered how to make your key meetings more effective, your away days more productive and stop procrastination? As your external facilitator, I can help you do just that. My facilitation approach uses appreciative inquiry, which helps you identify what works well and understand the key issues. It encourages discussion, so everyone feels involved, and aids understanding.
Thank you for delivering…We had initially planned for this session to be delivered in person. You quickly adapted when it was moved online due to COVID-19 restrictions, and used your confident and personable presenting style to ensure the session remained interactive and that attendees engaged throughout.
Your expert knowledge of the subject matter shone through during the presentation, and you gave precise and empathetic answers to questions raised, often signalling further resources on the issue. Attendees have commented on how valuable they found the practical focus of your presentation. Everyone left the session with a set of things they can start doing today to build their confidence and tackle imposter syndrome.
