Library Talk – The Con Job with Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris – Tuesday, 4 August 2020 @6pm

Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris’s PhD from the University of Cambridge looked at the experiences of women in male-dominated fields. Over the last 25 years,  Dr Doyle-Morris has helped organisations improve their gender balance, particularly at a senior level. In that time, she has also written two books – ‘Beyond the Boys’ Club: Achieving Career Success as a Woman Working in a Male-Dominated Field’ and ‘Female Breadwinners: How They Make Relationships Work and Why they are the Future of the Modern Workplace’. Her latest book, ‘The Con Job’, was published in Spring 2020.
She has advised over 50 organisations in the UK, Europe and the US – namely in STEM fields as well as the legal and financial services sectors on improving inclusion and gender balance in particular.
Dr. Doyle-Morris is a popular keynote speaker because of her humorous, thought-provoking and straight-talking style. She engages with the audience via a mix of interaction, organisational anecdotes, academic research and practical advice above all – highlighting how these overlap to affect the listener. She is an expert on women in the workplace and is often featured on BBC and STV and is routinely cited in news and industry press.
Over the last 18 years, she has presented to Executive Boards as well as audiences of hundreds – from client-facing events to organisational or industry networks. Recognising her own international style, as someone who has lived and worked in 5 different countries, audiences have been from across the UK and US, from Sweden to Portugal to the Middle East.

You’re skilled…but do you sometimes feel overlooked at work?
Not progressing at work is often blamed on ‘lack of confidence’, but this excuse is a total con job. It misses genuine competence, conveniently rewards the status quo and distracts us from understanding the context of what really drives confidence. This hoax means we fail to get the right people into the best jobs.
Using the strategies covered in ‘The Con Job’, this presentation, often delivered with Q&A or a panel, helps audiences:
● Capitalise on what you are doing well to silence the ‘imposter’. ● Convince others to value your hard-earned experience. ● Redefine confidence so it doesn’t continue to advantage the ‘status quo’.
Let Dr. Doyle-Morris work with your audience to debunk the greatest ‘Con Job’ to get ahead.
