Session description: So much of how people approach challenges and opportunities in their lives is dictated by confidence. What makes one person succeed over another when they both have equal levels of experience? Often it comes down to confidence and a person’s ability to market themselves. In this session, WINiT Members will

explore three steps anyone can take to start closing the confidence gap and share some personal stories about how confidence had an impact on their success and career growth.
