Book Launch- The Con Job
As part of our Accelerate@EY webcast series, we are delighted to welcome Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris, founder of InclusIQ, to talk about her third book, The Con Job. She looks at why some people who are highly skilled still feel overlooked at work. Not progressing at work is often blamed on ‘lack of confidence’, but this excuse is a total con job. It misses genuine competence, conveniently rewards the status quo and distracts us from understanding the context of what really drives confidence. This hoax means we fail to get the right people into the best jobs.
Suzanne will be joined by panelists:
-Barbara-Ann King Chief Commercial Officer at Investec Wealth & Investment UK
-Georg Schmundt-Thomas Former President of Essity- Global Hygiene Category
-Shoku Amirani BBC Journalist & Chair of EMBRACE network
We will share strategies from the book and you will learn how to:
- Convince others to value your hard-earned experience, and
- Redefine confidence so it doesn’t continue to advantage the ‘status quo’.
- Capitalise on what you are doing well to silence the ‘imposter’.
