The Show Up List – IRL Talk with Q&A

24 March 2022
London, Makers HQ

Our speakers will give you insights and advice on how to self promote so that you can advance your career in any industry.

About this event

Being in the right place at the right time always seems like something left up to chance, right? Well, a massive part of getting the ‘chance’ to succeed in your career is showing up. Yet, we still find it one of the hardest things to do. Some of us won’t show up because of fear of rejection, the feeling that we’re not worthy of opportunities, that anything we’ve achieved already was down to luck or timing instead of our talent and qualifications.

Does any of this sound familiar? Introducing, The Show Up List.

Makers have created The Show Up List event series with the aim of elevating conversations around personal brand building, and why showing up is the most important thing you’ll ever do. Thanks to a range of fantastic speakers, these events will give our attendees the skills and knowledge to enhance their personal and professional confidence to progress in a career in any field.

In our first event our speakers, Stefanie Sword-Williams and Monica Chadha will explore:

  • How to manage imposter syndrome by identifying the barriers that are feeding into your self-doubt
  • How to change, grow and nurture relationships that are supportive and empowering
  • Psychological tricks of the interview and how to manage your anxiety
  • How to own your narrative and bring your A-game to the interview
  • The importance of self-leadership and who you build your network with
  • How to get in, get up and get ahead in your career


  • 6:30 pm – Arrival and drinks at Makers HQ
  • 6:50 pm – Stefanie Sword – Williams talk with Q&A
  • 7:20 pm – Monica Chadha talk with Q&A
  • 7: 50 pm – Networking and refreshments
