Type Of Speaker


“For an industry based on promotion, it’s ironic that many of us find self-promotion a dirty word, or don’t know where to start – especially women. Having gained some fantastic insights from attending one of Stef Sword-William’s other webinars, I invited her to BBC Creative for a departmental Q&A, discussing self-promotion, imposter syndrome and all things FBH. It was a really well attended talk and has been widely held up to be the most useful session we’ve had throughout lockdown.

The session was hugely inspiring, honest and – as usual with Stef – tremendously galvanising, with loads of positive action points to take away. Stef’s a real dynamo, a cheerleader for confidence and advocate for owning and celebrating your successes. As one colleague put it, “Stef’s advice is golden”.
