Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome. It’s not new and anyone can get it, be they royalty, an American founding father or – in modern times – web professionals of all stages in their career and of all disciplines.

Peter will talk objectively about his own experience and attempt to separate the real from the imagined.
