This event will be live streamed via webcast
Fed up of feeling like a fraud? Learn how to manage the impostor within.

Do you feel that you’re waiting to be found out, that your success is due to luck or that others have an inflated view of you? You are not alone! Many high achieving women feel the same.

The feelings of being a fake, phoney or impostor, despite your successes and achievements, can be debilitating and often come at a high cost both professionally and personally.

This webinar explores what the Impostor Syndrome or Impostor Phenomenon (as it is correctly known) is, how it shows up and the toll it can take on you. The session offers practical insights and techniques and provides space to reflect on how you can spot it and what you can do to manage the imposter within.

The Building Success webinar series has been designed to provide practical advice and tools for women innovators. The series explores topics ranging from marketing through to intellectual property, funding & finance and HR & recruitment. Click here for more information on the series and previous webinars.


Lorna Clarke, Leadership Coach & Facilitator

Lorna began coaching in 2004 where she worked with a coach in the run up to being promoted to director at Deloitte. This was instrumental in being able to successfully lead the business through a period of significant growth and change including the eventual spin out into a JV with a US firm. This sparked Lorna’s interest in human potential, what makes for great leadership and how we can lead in an authentic and sustainable way.

Lorna’s areas of expertise include: increasing confidence and influence; building resilience and managing stress; developing and sustaining effective work relationships; having a bigger impact as a leader; navigating the transition to leadership or to entrepreneurship.

Mary Ely, Business & Personal Change Coach

Mary is always learning something new and has relied on a natural coaching style and an ability to adapt and build good relationships throughout her career.

She initially qualified as a Chartered Accountant but has led, implemented and supported individual and business change for over 26 years.

Mary has worked locally and globally, across many sectors and functional areas with people from all organisational levels. Helping many people involved in the challenge of implementing business change and technology led transformation deal with high levels of change, complexity and uncertainty. Times where core ‘human’ skills, such as emotional intelligence, leadership and relationship skills, confidence, motivation, resilience and stress management are required to not only survive but thrive.
