Ever feel like you’re ‘winging it’? Like your underqualified for your role? Or maybe not a “real” entrepreneur?

If yes, you’re not alone – with surveys reporting that most people experience imposter syndrome at some point in their career, it’s clearly an issue many of us face and yet, there are many real and tangible consequences if you choose to simply ignore it.

In our round table discussion led by Dr David Cliff of Gedanken, we’ll explore imposter syndrome in more detail, focusing on why you feel it and how to combat it.

Our round tables are shaped by your views and experience, so while we hope to cover the topics above, we may discuss other subjects related to imposter syndrome during the session.
