Have you ever thought "I wish I'd said something at the time!"? Psychologist and musician Lou Mclean's discussion on confidence, resilience & emotional self-defence will offer techniques for handling similar situations in future.

Women only event

This women-only 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.

About Audacious Women Festival

The Audacious Women Festival is your chance to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere.  This is more than a women's festival – we celebrate Audacious Women - women who are bold and courageous, who have flaunted convention, taken risks and done audacious acts. Women who move outside their comfort zone, face their inner demons and do what they always wished they dared.

Wherever you are, we’re here to encourage you to do your own audacious act. Break convention. Get outside your comfort zone. Be adventurous. Do a charity parachute jump, throw some bricks through the glass ceiling, or organise a protest march. Anything that will make a positive difference to you or to the world.
