ShareUp Soton

Hey! Just so you know, this article is over 2 years old. Some of the information in it might be outdated, so take it with a grain of salt. I'm not saying it's not worth a read, but don't take everything in it as gospel. If you're curious about something, it never hurts to double-check with a more up-to-date source!



Following on from the success of the 1st ShareUp Soton, the 2nd ShareUp Soton lived up to the fun creative vibes! A couple of new faces, a couple of new ideas and a couple of drinks were the perfect combinations for a pool of creativity and discussions. The 2nd ShareUp Soton was hosted by the lovely folks over at Etch, who were kind enough to put together a bar of refreshments for all attendees. After the attendees had finished catching up on the content they had created in the past month, we then moved on to a talk given once again by the co-organiser of ShareUp, Jack Davies.

Presentation - Imposter Syndrome


The 2nd ShareUp presentation was a follow-up on the previous presentation. The 1st presentation was to encourage everyone to recognise their creative potential and to take actions to produce something special. However, this presentation was looking at imposter syndrome and how it can have a negative effect on those who create content. After discussing what imposter syndrome is, a toolkit was provided in the presentation in the form of a 5 step process.

To wrap things up, all attendees were paired up with another content 'buddy'. Once paired, they made a commitment to creating content. The content could be a small or big goal, as long as it was achievable by the next event and it was something they were interested in. It is encouraged that creators task themselves with something that they have been neglecting or have never experimented with before, but are interested in learning.
