Professional confidence is the feeling of self-assurance that you are able to handle your role. But managing your emotions and their impact on your behaviour can be tricky.

In this virtual classroom seminar we will explore what it feels and looks like to be confident at work. It provides a toolbox of activities to improve your self-confidence (what you feel) and confidence (how you behave) at work - whether in person or virtually.

Don’t let a lack of confidence hold back your career.
