Do you feel like you're faking it? like you don't feel good enough to do your job? Feeling like you've blagged your way through your career? Then like me and hundreds of others, you might be suffering from imposter syndrome.

During my talk I am going to discuss what imposter syndrome is and how it feels. Then I'm going to talk you through why people suffer from it and how people overcome it.

This talk is based on both my personal experiences and those of others. By the end of it I hope you can identify if you are suffering from imposter syndrome and also create a team environment that helps to combat the feeling within your team mates.

I must say I really enjoyed this lecture! I definitely recognised myself and many people I know through the presentation and it was great to hear that we're not the only ones. I also felt that the lecture was well structured - we went through the symptoms and were given advice on how we can fight these feelings. Very spot on!

I enjoyed this talk, even though I never really had this syndrome, I recognized myself in a bunch of examples (maybe I got the syndrome: :P).
Mark provided a list of useful tips, that I will definitely start to work on.
