Have you ever thought "I wish I'd said something at the time!" This presentation will provide you with emotional self defence techniques, tips for dealing with confrontation, and for maximizing mental health & resilience. How to be a Bad-ass, which premiered at DAREFest 2017, has been adapted specifically for Audacious Women Festival. It will cover a variety of topics relevant to all women in the creative industries and beyond. Lou Mclean used her experiences as a Psychologist & a professional musician to develop this workshop. She will discuss different issues experienced by women in the workplace and how to address them with confidence.  

Feedback from previous attendees: "I was inspired by Lou's talk".
"So inspired, and have taken on board the advice about confrontation especially. Thank you!"
