DISTINGUISHED FAVORITE: Independent Press Awards 2021 - CareerSHORTLISTED: Business Book Awards 2021 - Business Self-DevelopmentStudies show that a massive 70% of people feel like an imposter at some point in their professional life. Brand guru and former Chair of Interbrand, Rita Clifton, shares how she learnt to work with her imposter self rather than hide from it in order to succeed in her career.

Imposter syndrome can cause a constant fear of being found out that you aren't 'good enough' or called out for being a 'fraud'. It impacts people in different ways and can be debilitating and negatively affect relationships, personal life and careers. So what can you do about it?

Love Your Imposter shows you how to take on your imposter self and use it as a driver to come out stronger. Using practical down-to-earth advice based on her experiences, Rita Clifton, tackles the myth that you need to 'fake it until you make it', highlights why authenticity can be your biggest weapon and skilfully makes the case for business being more humane.

"Rita Clifton has always been a great champion for helping people be their best selves, professionally and personally, and this book helps that cause in a fabulously human way. She is funny, insightful, practical and inspiring" - Nicola Mendelsohn CBE, VP EMEA, Facebook

"Most people have felt like an imposter at some point in their career but it takes a modern 21st century leader like Rita Clifton to put it into a book and have you embrace this emotion of vulnerability." - Kanya King CBE, Founder of MOBO Awards

"Do you have a voice in your head telling you you're not good enough? Yes? Join the Imposter Syndrome Club! Women's inequality in the workplace is costing the economy trillions of pounds a year. Much could be solved by replacing that voice with the voice of Rita Clifton instead. This jargon busting, business icon and brand guru will get inside your brain and give you the tools you need to get to the top and most importantly know you deserve to be there." - Kathryn Parsons MBE, CEO & Co-founder Decoded

"Rita Clifton, as anyone who has ever heard her speak knows, is warm, witty, wise and wonderfully inspiring, and her new book is all of those things too. Reading this book makes you feel like you are in the room with her, with Rita as your own personal mentor as you navigate your life and career. Her advice to people going to speak in public at a gathering of any size is 'Show up as a human' and nowhere is Rita more human than in this book." - Professor Heather McGregor, CBE (Mrs Moneypenny), Executive Dean, Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University

"Finally - someone tackling the imposter syndrome head-on! Enough talking about the fact we have it - at last a book that actually deals with it! If I could have her beside me throughout my own business journey I would. Relatable, funny, down to earth and a woman who's been there, done it and knows what she is talking about. A must-read for every woman across the country." - Holly Tucker MBE, Founder, notonthehighstreet.com

"Love Your Imposter is a brilliant book and it couldn't have come a better time. We are seeing a human revolution where professional and personal boundaries are blurred especially for women. This book gives us inspirational yet practical tips on how to navigate this new world. Rita Clifton writes with refreshing honesty about her career and beginnings and explores concepts such as strength in vulnerability, communication and ways we can all be more empathic to ourselves. I loved it!" - Belinda Parmar OBE, The Empathy Business
