Success: what lies behind the mask?

An informative and inspiring talk exploring courage, confidence and the imposter by Kate Atkin, MSc.

Do you experience a nagging doubt that you could be ‘found out’ or put their/your success down to luck or timing?

imposter1.jpgHave you noticed a need to be perfect and avoid making mistakes because it ‘proves’ you are not up to the job?

Would you like to feel more confident, and put themselves forward for new projects, opportunities or even promotion?

And how do you handle overconfidence, without dampening enthusiasm?


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!)

The Workshop will be held in the Reception Room at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge.

Confidence: the ultimate career ingredient

Confidence is key to achieve your career goals. A lack of confidence in our self-value is like a glass ceiling, doesn’t allow us to grow. Join us in the last WiSE UP 2017 series workshop and learn how to improve your confidence, get noticed and fulfill your ambitions.

She spent 16 years doing research on structural biology, using different techniques on different systems.

Women winemakers

Our first event of the year was a social one at the Wine merchants. We enjoyed a wine tasting focused in women winemakers. Alice Archer proved to be an expert and entertaining host.

We learned about how women have made a difference in vineyards and wineries worldwide. From well-known champagne houses as Veuve Clicquot (widow of Clicquot) to more modern wines as Sin complejos (unashamed) from Gil Luna vineyards.

A great and fun event!
