Join the Cambridge Network (CN) for this breakfast networking event, which is also open to non-members of CN.


Many people have a voice inside that says they could do so much more, at work, in their community or at home. The internal chatter is sometimes accompanied by a lack of confidence which can prevent you reaching your potential.

Success also comes with its own trials. Many high achievers have an internal voice asking “did they really mean to promote me?”, “am I really good enough?”, “what if they find me out?”… and it can be really stressful!

The irony is that the real frauds don’t tend to experience these thoughts at all.

During this talk Kate Atkin will provide you with some practical tips, tricks and techniques to give confidence a boost and help banish the imposter feelings.

The strategies are grounded in science and work in the real world.

Who should attend this breakfast networking event?

Business owners, managers and those responsible for growth, strategy, finance, IT, HR, culture and communication within their organisation, whether large or small.

Through this interactive talk you will:

  • Explore the reasons behind imposter feelings and how to spot them in others
  • Discover how to grow inner confidence


  • Leave equipped with ways to boost resilience and get past the imposter feelings, whether your own or to help those you manage.

The imposter phenomenon is experienced by some 70% of people at some point in their lives. Described as a feeling of intellectual phoniness, this phenomenon, or syndrome, is not confined to women, or to academics, or to those who work for others… it is widely experienced.

It is a feeling of being an imposter. (the real imposters don’t experience it at all!)
