Handling Uncertainty, Imposter Syndrome and Becoming the Real You

Thursday 21st September 6:30 - 9:00 PM BST

A special event for this autumn ...... Dive deep into our ability to handle uncertainty and the intricate web of Imposter Syndrome as we take the journey towards authenticity. Uncover the profound insights into why we might self-sabotage and "What's really happening?" as you embark on a transformational exploration of self-discovery.

Join us for an enlightening evening at this exciting Conscious Cafe evening in Skipton featuring two renowned thought leaders and authors: Runa Magnusdottir (Iceland) and Nicholas Haines (UK).

Ever felt like an imposter in your own life? Perhaps something you have experienced when you changed jobs or shifted roles. Runa and Nick will guide you through an extraordinary experiential conversation, unveiling the power of asking a different kind of questions to clear the obstacles, illuminate your aspirations, and harmonize your heart and mind.

Discover how to shed the masks and embrace your true self. It's time to break free from the constraints that hold you back and step into the brilliance of your authentic self.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain invaluable wisdom and practical tools to navigate the journey towards becoming the real YOU. Reserve your spot today and let your transformation begin with Conscious Cafe. The power of asking new questions cannot be under-estimated. They literally change your brain and will change your life.

We are thrilled to welcome back Runa Magnusdottir from Iceland and Nicholas Haines from Nottingham who have both spoken for Conscious cafe before .. but never together... at least not in Skipton.. they have both presented at the United Nations in New York sharing their ground-breaking research insights! It is going to be a great night.

Nicholas Haines is the founder of the Five Institute, creator of The Vitality Test and co-creator of #NoMoreBoxes Movement.
He is also an entrepreneur, international speaker, healer, author, strategist and teacher. Over the last 40 years, Nick has conducted over 50,000 one on one consultations and worked with large corporations, NHS hospitals, educational institutes and international governments to address issues around relationships, cultures, communication, diversity, empowerment and kindness.
His two latest books are The Art of Kind and Flowing Relationships, and The Story of Boxes, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Co-authored with Rúna Magnúsdóttir and the soon to be published The Art and Energy of Feeling Good About Yourself.

Runa Magnusdottir is a dynamic Leadership Coach, International Speaker, and the visionary Co-Creator of the #NoMoreBoxes Transformational Movement. She partners with CEOs, leaders, entrepreneurs, and politicians to ignite their full potential, enabling them to shine brighter, think bolder, and become their best selves.
In addition, Runa serves as the Marketing PR Manager for the Federation of Trade and Services in her native Iceland.
A prolific author, she is currently crafting her third book. Her debut, "Branding Your X-Factor," explored the quest for personal uniqueness. Her second, co-authored with Nicholas Haines, titled "The Story of Boxes, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly," delved into the societal constraints that hinder personal growth.
Her forthcoming book, "Leadership Beyond Gender in a Messed-Up World," is a profound exploration of how leaders can liberate individuals from the confines of societal assumptions and stereotypes, allowing them to thrive as their authentic selves. Runa Magnusdottir is a trailblazer in fostering inclusive, transformative leadership.
