Have you ever experienced a sinking feeling of being 'found out'? Worried that someone will discover that you are not good enough after all? You are not alone, over 70% of the population experience this 'Imposter Syndrome' at some point in their lives. This workshop explores what the Imposter Syndrome is, why it develops and importantly, how to deal with and mitigate against the effects. And why it is not really a syndrome, but a phenomenon!


Participants will leave equipped with the tools to identify it in themselves and others, and how to cope with and overcome the feelings.

The workshop will include:

  • what the imposter phenomenon is
  • why it isn’t a syndrome
  • how it differs from self-doubt
  • what are the possible causes and triggers
  • strategies for handling and overcoming imposter feelings
  • Re-writing your “story”
  • how to help others.

Giving and Receiving Feedback Effectively

Date: 4th July 2022

Time: 10:00- 11:30

Speaker: Susan Edwards

How to book: 4th July Session


After a clinical break, our skills, confidence, and competence can feel different. As you re-build and integrate back into your clinical practice you may find this session particularly useful to attend.

No matter what stage you are at in your career, feedback will have been integral part to your education, training, and professional working lives. One of the interesting features of feedback is that there really is an art form to this, but you may not have necessarily had an opportunity to take stock and reflect on how you do this both from the perspective of giving feedback but also how you act on feedback that is given to you.

By the end of this webinar you will know: 

  • Your feedback style and the impact this has on others
  • Effective ways of providing and receiving feedback in the context of your work
  • Using positive re-framing, feed forward and SBI to build confidence and create structure.

Emotional intelligence in healthcare

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, and those of the people around you. Clinicians with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they are feeling, what their emotions mean, and how these emotions can affect other people. This session provides a fantastic opportunity to think about your EI and how this can strengthen your knowledge and development of self and positively impact you in your roles.


By the end of this webinar you will learn: 

  • What the five key elements of EI are and the benefits that this can bring to your work
  • From a cultural perspective, we'll consider the impact of culture and EI in relation to healthcare.
  • How to apply this knowledge to create and support an emotionally intelligent working environment.
