  • C&C Interview Masterclass

    What makes a great interview? What’s the winning blueprint to selecting, interviewing and recruiting the right candidate for your business?

    I get asked this all the time by clients and friends looking to grow and shape their teams. Not every business has a dedicated, trained HR team, and, even then, reliability of a job interview refers to a level of consistency reached by multiple interviewers assessing the same applicant.

    With that in mind, I’ve created a new Interview Masterclass, for clients looking to develop their interview strategies and skills.

    Refine interview techniques

    My mission is to help clients really enhance their own interview skills and realign their approach. This involves getting to grips with interview psychology, to develop and implement the right techniques make objective, smart, guided recruitment and selection decisions. Ultimately it means avoiding the costly, time-consuming mistakes that can lead to long-term – negative- consequences with your business.

    A roadmap to interview success

    The class draws on my own professional experience in recruitment, with insights from the 11,000+ interviews I’ve delivered over my career together with applied empirical research.

    Clients can expect to:

    • Reduce recruitment costs and time.
    • Learn tools to identify high-performing people.
    • Remove the temptation of taking a gut feel approach.
    • Gain systems to evaluate and measure technical and interpersonal capabilities.
    • Maximise the potential for successful selection and retention


    Take interviews to the next level

    An interview is, at its core, a social interaction and exchange of information.  Companies that invest in developing effective, affirming processes appreciate how great interviews can shape their reputation as an employer brand, and improve their chances of bringing the right people into their teams.

    I’ll be sharing how to you can refine your own interview experiences and processes. We’ll be looking at how to design high-quality interviews, methodologies to engage your interviewee, your role in creating a successful interview as well as securing a diverse workforce.

  • Banish Imposter Syndrome, Realise Your Potential!

    Have you ever had the feeling that you didn’t really know what you were doing, and it was just a matter of time before someone realised it and exposed you as a fraud?

    This horribly painful feeling, that stands in our way of being able to truly reach our potential and be seen is known as the Imposter Syndrome and research tells us that it has been experienced by more than 70% of people at one time or another.

    Lucy Chamberlain, will explore the Imposter Syndrome, where it comes from, how it manifests and most importantly offer helpful pathways/tools and techniques to help overcome this fear and move forwards to owning your magic!

    During this informative presentation you’ll learn:

    • What is the Impostor Syndrome and how it differs from low self-esteem
    • 7 perfectly good reasons why smart people so often feel like frauds
    • How your personal competence rule book may be setting you up to fall short
    • Procrastination, perfectionism and other unconscious coping strategies “impostors” use to avoid being found out and the price they pay for that protection
    • Why women are both more susceptible to and held back by impostor feelings
    • Practical steps to help you to banish the Impostor Syndrome and end needless self-doubt


    Everyone experiences  Impostor Syndrome, but we see it more dramatically in women. Lucy Chamberlain will help you on a path to  learning how to own your own success, how to talk about your accomplishments and self promote. We will move you from feeling like an impostor to truly stepping into your own magic, acknowledging your brilliance, and be truly seen!

  • Tame the inner critic and realise your full potential!

    Does your inner critic tell you that you don’t have it in you to succeed? Being self-critical can push us to strive and excel, but the critical internal voice is not a sustainable motivator: As it wants us to be perfect at all times, it keeps us from growing and developing. The good news is that it is possible to turn the Inner Critic from a major drag into an effective support voice or even an ally.

    This workshop is for everybody who

    • feels like their inner critic is keeping them from being at ease in their lives
    • wants to take the next steps in their professional development without judging themselves
    • is fed up with constantly second-guessing their motivations, decisions, and performance


    Learning Outcomes

    This workshop will show you what the critical voice in your head is all about, how to separate yourself from your inner critic, and which steps you can take to change what it tells you. You will leave the workshop with an actionable list of suggestions and tools that can help you work on positive changes and further strengthen your confidence and courage.
