It was an absolute pleasure to speak at the WLA conference, and a huge thank you to Sandra and her team for organising the day and inviting me to be part of it.
As my talk has been recorded some of you may have watched it after the day and I won't have met you all personally. If there are any issues or questions you would like to discuss which have been prompted by my talk please do feel free to contact me. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07779 646976.
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 page 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.
