BVNA Announces Kate Atkin an inspirational speaker, training consultant and coach as Keynote Speaker at this years BVNA Congress

Once a shy schoolgirl from rural Lincolnshire, Kate Atkin is now an award-winning speaker so she has plenty of ideas on how to overcome the butterflies and find the inner strength needed to be the best ‘you’ that you can be. 

Before starting her own learning and development business in 2000 Kate had a successful career with Barclays Bank plc. In 2015 she completed an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology which has brought insights into well-being, meaning and positivity.  This also led to opportunities to lecture at Cambridge University Judge Business School.  She is continuing with her research, currently focusing on courage, confidence and the imposter phenomenon.  Kate is also author of The Presentation Workout and The Confident Manager and a world debating champion.

Kate will be delivering a talk "Imposter Syndrome: an explanation and practical steps", on Friday 11th October, which will provide delegates with practical tips, tricks and techniques to give confidence a boost and help banish the imposter feelings.
