Overcoming The Impostor: The Keynote

A powerful live experience that will engage your audience and challenge them to think differently.

About the Keynote

In Overcoming The Impostor, Kris Kelso breaks down the mental battle of Impostor Syndrome. He gives entrepreneurs and business leaders the tools they need to silence their own worst enemy – the inner critic that wants to limit their potential and sabotage their career.

Using engaging stories and powerful metaphors, Kris helps audiences to see the world differently – embracing failure as part of success, recognizing fear as a positive sign, and leading with vulnerability when the stakes are high.

Overcoming The Impostor is a valuable experience for entrepreneurs, business leaders, independent creatives, self-employed individuals, and any other group of people who are taking risks and making bold choices.

Delivered live, in-person or virtually. Length: 45 Minutes
