Welcome and Opening Remarks

Rethinking Imposter Syndrome

Millions of people secretly worry they’re not as smart or talented as other people “think” they are. It's called impostor syndrome. And left unchecked, it can lead to costly consequences not only for individuals but for their organizations as well. Whether you personally identify with impostor feelings; know someone who does; or are simply curious, you will gain practical, immediate tools and strategies to help yourself and/or the people you lead, manage, mentor, teach, or parent.

Dr. Valerie Young
| Speaker Co-Founder of Imposter Syndrome Institute

Raise Your Voice & Deepen Your Impact

In our changing economy and noisy professional landscape, creating a personal brand and developing ego-less thought leadership is no small task. But with a LinkedIn profile that calmly SERVES instead of relentlessly SELLS, and by making the audience the hero of the story, you can build a foundation of trust. The result is a deeper connection and increased impact.
