The event theme, Unleash Your Professional Confidence: Overcome Perfectionism & Imposter Syndrome, will inform attendees about the two types of perfectionism, how perfectionism impacts leadership and how to break free of perfectionism to become a better leader. Open to both women and men, the event will focus on perfectionism and how to lead with excellence and build confidence.
