“There is a lot of talk out there about mindset; it’s almost a buzz word these days and it is super important and paramount to your success and almost the common denominator in “The Confidence Gap”.

We have three truly amazing speakers who are going to introduce some provoking concepts of mind-challenging nature in how to break down the barriers of success and turn Lead into Gold. Our mindset greatly affects our level of achievement, triumphs and what we endeavour to venture on this journey called life.

Being a Woman in Construction and in the minority, it has its challenging moments but mostly victorious. Having made undeniable progress in the industry, women are making many boundless unfolding changes, especially over the past decade.

But the Confidence Gap doesn’t just affect women in rising up and recognising their self-worth but it touches each and every one of us in our career. A fixed mindset is where people believe their qualities, their intelligence or maybe their talent as their only traits and they spend their time documenting them instead of developing them. Conversely, people with a Growth Mindset believe that their basic talents can be developed through determination and hard work, but this is just the beginning. This view creates a love for learning and resilience with a sense of accomplishment and drive for every challenge.”
