Upgrade Masterclass: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

Don't miss our upcoming event 'Overcoming Imposter Syndrome' where you'll learn to conquer those persistent feelings of self-doubt and fraud.

Our Upgrade Masterclass will be led by Kingston University Graduate Career Coach and business alumna Aysel Gagov, joined by Kingston University honorary graduate Edwina Dunn OBE, a data science pioneer and founder of The Female Lead, and Kingston alumnus Emmillio Inyang, a life coach and motivational speaker with over 15 years of experience in mentorship.

Imposter syndrome is a psychological phenomenon where individuals doubt their skills, talents or accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud or imposter, despite evidence of success. Imposter syndrome can lead to anxiety, low self-confidence and self-sabotaging behaviours, affecting both personal and professional life.

Our panel guests will share strategies to reframe negative thought patterns, build self-confidence, and celebrate your worth. Overcome that inner critic and learn to own your achievements. Uplift your mindset and break free from the imposter cycle!
